From a luminescent beach to a vanishing one, India offers us the most extraordinary and unusual beaches that will leave anyone in awe. Here are some of the most unusual beaches in the country that you should check out.

1.       Vanishing Beach

Located at eastern India, Chandipur Beach is dubbed as the "Vanishing Beach" when the sea disappears as it retreats 5 kilometer from shore because of low tide. Because of this phenomenon, people can take the opportunity to discover the sea bed by not totally diving in the water and see it on foot.

2.       Juhu Beach

Bioluminescent waves caused by the phytoplanktons who radiate bluish light when they are agitated are some of the things in store in Juhu Beach. This phenomenon might be caused by strong waves which caused the planktons to be in their defensive state.

3.       Om Beach

Om Beach is located at Gokarna and is widely famous because of its shape, from where it got its name. It is a popular local tourist spot, and is near the vicinity of households so expect to see a lot of locals spending their time here especially during the weekends. It is best to time your trip here during the weekdays.

4.       Cow Beach

Found in Goa India, Cow Beach is what it is implicated by its name. Cows hang out at the beach to get their tan and enjoy the sun. They don't mind the tourists and locals but it takes a little bit of getting used to if it's the first time you're seeing it.

5.       Arambol Beach

What makes this beach unique is its neighboring hot springs. It is called the Sweet Water Lake which has, as the name implies, water that tastes sweet. The hot spring not only rejuvenates the body, but also gives a tasty treat.
