Sand: Xerokambos Beach

My friend Claudia responded with great zeal to my call for sand from different beaches around the world.  In addition to her samples from Sword Beach and Dunkirk, she also brought back sand from her holiday to the Greek island of Crete.  The sand from Xerokambos Beach is interesting compared to those two French beaches, since it is much more diverse- there are many different colours and likely different mineral origins for the sand grains that we see there.

That being said, when I see pictures of how lovely Crete looks, I have the feeling that I would not be too focused on the finer details of local sand composition if I went on holiday there!
