Hoshizuna no Hama is a beach located on the remote island of Iriomote in Okinawa Prefecture, Japan. The name roughly translates to “star sand beach” and was named aptly, due to the star shaped sand which calls this beach home. One-celled organisms called baclogypsina sphaerulata have pointed arms which are used to help them move. The other shell of these organisms is made from calcium carbonate and when they die, they leave their exoskeletons behind which make up this beach.
