Glass Beach, USA

Glass Beach, Fort Bragg

Glass Beach is a beach in MacKerricher State Park near Fort Bragg, California that is abundant in sea glass created from years of dumping garbage into an area of coastline near the northern part of the town. It is a very beautiful place to visit.

 

Bowling Beach, USA

Thousands of rocks appear to have gathered together to defy the tides like an army of small boulders. The weird thing is that these boulders are uniform in size and shape, as well as in their spacing, though man has nothing to do with it. It is an amazing phenomenon to notice.

Chandpur Beach, India

When the low tide occurs, then the tourists are able to explore the seabed, complete with shells, driftwood and little red crabs. Due to the unique circumstances, the beach supports bio-diversity. Horseshoe crab is also found here on the beach towards Mirzapur, the nearby fishing market and community at the confluence of the Budhabalanga River.

Airport Beach,UK

This airport is literally washed away by the tide once a day, and if you arrive on a late afternoon flight, you may notice a couple of cars in the parking lot with their lights on, which provides pilots some added visibility, since the airport is naturally lit.

Scala dei Tirchi, Italy

This  Scala dei Turchi (Italian: “Stair of the Turks”) is a rocky cliff and beach on the coast of Realmonte, near Porto Empedocle, southern Sicily, Italy. It has become a tourist attraction due to its unusual white color.

Nahi beach, Saint Marteen

Because of  its  unique proximity of low flying airliners, the location is very popular with plane spotters. This is one of the few places in the world where aircraft can be viewed in their flightpath just outside the end of the runway. Watching airliners pass over the beach is such a popular activity that daily arrivals and departures airline timetables are displayed on a board in most bars and restaurants on the beach, and the Sunset Bar and Grill has a speaker on its outside deck that broadcasts the radio transmissions between pilots and the airport’s control tower.

Hot water beach, New Zealand

This beach is a popular destination both for locals and tourists visiting New Zealand. Annual visitor numbers have been estimated at 700,000, making it one of the most popular geothermal attractions in the Waikato Region.

Ocean dome, Japan

This is an artificial beach constructed in the Seagaia resort along the coastal highway outside the city of Myazaki in Japan it has a fully controlled indoor climate throughout the year.

Marietta Island, Mexico

Must visit. Protected from the intrusion of the world outside, the hidden beach of Marieta Islands, Puerto Vallarta is a world of its own. Located just a few miles off the coast of Mexico, close to Bandera bay, Marieta Islands are archipelagos that were formed as a result of volcanic activity.

Wild Forest beach, Gabon

This forested beach is located in Loango National Park in western Gabon. Loango’s wild forested beach is one of the few places in the world where great mammal herds still have access to the sea, and one of the last places  in the world with Hippopotamus in the surf. Buffalo and Forest Elephant herds graze on the coastal grasslands and wander on the beach.

Papakolea beach, Hawaii

The beach is sometimes named after the cinder cone, and sometimes after the area of land called Papakōlea, which comes from papa kōlea, which means plover flats in the Hawaiian language. Papakōlea is the area near the crater where the Pacific Golden Plover (Pluvialis fulva) are sometimes seen in winter.

Pink sand beach, Bermuda

Bermuda has some magnificent large and small beaches. Beach sand is not volcanic but from finely pulverized remains of calcium carbonate shells and skeletons of invertebrates such as corals, clams, forams and other shells.

Playa de Gulpiyuri, Spain

Playa de Gulpiyuri is a flooded sinkhole with an inland beach located near Llanes, Spain around 100 m (330ft) from the Cantabrian Sea.

San Alfonso Beach, Chile

Seeing as San Alfonso del Mar fronts a huge beach and the Pacific Ocean, it seems an odd spot for the world’s largest swimming pool. But the pool’s remarkable spaciousness complements the ocean beyond rather effortlessly.

Plage de Saleccia, France

 

The beach near St-Florent, on the French island of Corsica, is known as Plage de Saleccia and it is a long and undeveloped expanse of dazzling white sand.
