This south coast beach just south of Brighton near Dunedin / New Zealand gets golden sand sprinkled in patches, randomly over the mostly white sand. It’s a very pretty effect. When we visited on Christmas morning there was way less gold sand than when we’d visited a few weeks before but I found a nice gold streak at the base of the sand dunes.
