Black Sands Beach Is A Unique And Beautiful Destination On The Northern California Coast

You don’t have to travel all the way to Iceland to see beaches covered in beautiful black sand. We’ve got one right here in Northern California. Hiding along the stunning Lost Coast in Humboldt County, Black Sands Beach is a unique destination that boasts a type of coastal beauty that’s rare to come across. Boasting stark black sand, it makes for quite the sight when you’re exploring this rugged section of the NorCal coast.
