Millions of discarded glassware has been worn down by the power of the ocean to create a stunning coast near the city of Vladivostok, Russia. The once jagged, dangerous pieces of glass have been rounded down to smooth accents of the already stunning cliff-side shore.
The shards are thought to have been dumped at Ussuri Bay in the form of bottles by a local factory, and nature has since altered them after years of tossing them about in the water. The beach is now visitor friendly with the once pain-inducing glass fragments having been smoothed of their edges. Years of erosion have given the pebbles a frosted appearance from all the surface scratches.
Ussuri Bay isn’t the only home to a colourful coast; sea glass can be found along shores across the world. From North and South America to Spain and Australia, countries with vastly different environments all boast these kind of tourist-attracting beaches.
