Sparkle #123: Last few days at the Beach

Summer is quickly making way for fall, and while I cannot wait for the air to get cooler and the days to get shorter, I will definitely miss one thing about summer – the lovely, lazy, long days spent at the beach!

The world is filled with beaches – some beautiful, some exotic and some rather unusual. The following 6 unique beaches have been on top of my travel list for a while now. There are plenty of beautiful beaches to explore, and if you click on the links at the end of the post, you will be taken to guides which list out some other spectacular sand spots around the world. But as of today, I am drawn specifically to these 6 beach wonders.
