Where does white coral sand originate?

Believe it or not, from a colorful green fish! The Parrot fish use their beaks to scrape off coral rock.

The fish digest algae and expel the algae as fine white sand. One fish can produce tons of soft white sand each year.

The most famous pink sand beaches are found in Bermuda, and in the Bahamas, on Harbor Island. Pink Sand is the result of  the colorful red shells of tiny sea creatures called "foraminifera". These tiny creatures live beneath rocks and inside caves. Their red shells are broken up by the surf into fine, soft pink colored sand.
