2. Miho no Matsubara, Japan.

This sooty shoreline stretches four miles and boasts a backdrop of none other than the famous Mount Fuji. The name of this black sand beach translates to Miho Pine Grove because its 30,000-strong forest of ancient pine trees is what this natural wonder is most renowned for. Be sure to rent a bike to tour Miho’s peninsula on Kami no Michi (God's Road), and pay a visit to the nearby Miho Shrine, a UNESCO World Heritage site.
