Glass Beach, California

Once used as a dumping ground for Fort Bragg’s waste, the sea has cleansed much of Glass Beach’s refuse since it was closed in the 1960s, resulting in a beach covered in glass, the only material that remains. Smoothed by the sea, the glass now creates a dazzling ‘sea of gems’ effect.

Papakolea Beach, Hawaii

Another unusual color for a beach is the strong olivine green on show at Papakolea. The color is actually caused by a mineral created by the Big Island’s volcanic activity even if it looks like an algae.

Bowling Ball Beach, California

The huge, round rocks on this beach look as if they’ve been carefully placed in their perfect rows, but they’re a testament to the power of nature over time.

The sea has eroded the softer rock around them, leaving only the perfectly smoothed boulders remaining.

Vik Beach, Iceland

The southernmost point of Iceland is windy, wild and cold, but the stunning black sands of this mysterious beach make up for the foreboding atmosphere.

Beyond the dark beach, black basalt figures rise from the water, standing firm against the crashing Atlantic waves. Vik lies directly in the path of the Katla volcano, believed by experts to be close to eruption.
