Glass Beach, California
This beach is definitely one of the most unique. Now, a beach that has been created from years of dumped rubbish doesn’t sound very appealing to start with but bear with me. From 1906 to 1967 people from the local town used to dump glass, household appliances and even cars into the sea. A clean-up programme got rid of all the old metal and non-biodegradable waste with the ocean breaking down the glass and pottery. This has resulted in a beach dotted with pretty jewel-like stones spread across the sea, a must-see for its sparkling beachfront.
Crane Beach, Barbados

The name Crane Beach comes from a large crane that used to be situated at the top of the cliff which was used for loading and unloading ships.

Known as one of the best diving spots in Brazil, visitors can enjoy spectacular marine flora and fauna. The cliffs surrounding the beach are the perfect place for dolphin spotting.
