Obsidian Beach is located on the south-west coast of Mustique, Leeward Islands, Caribbean.
While many islands boast black-sand, you will often find them to be various shades of gray.
This beach, however, is very, very dark and the sand sparkles in direct sunlight like glass, which it is.
The coral and leaves show you that the true colors in this beach are preserved in the photo, and that it is not artificially darkened.

It's well worth renting a Kawasaki mule and driving down the long rough road to this beach to simply view it's startling beauty.
