Do NOT belive the overly exposed photoshoped pink beach however Spiaggia Rosa is one of the few places on the planet with pink sand.

When it comes to protecting Budelli's pink sand, the Italian government is not messing around. When New Zealand banker Michael Harte attempted to establish an eco-friendly resort and biological observatory on the island in 2013, the Italian government responded by blocking its proposal in an effort to preserve the environment. Hopefully, with such efforts, Budelli's pink sand will not wash away for a long time.
