When I think of beaches, images that come to mind are sweeping swathes of golden sands, secluded coves and rocky outcrops. We do tend to have a stereotypical view of our ideal beach, but what about some of the weird beaches of this world which defy the rules of convention. Some of the most unique beaches have green sand, pink rocks and even cast iron statues. When it comes to unusual beaches, there is something that will enthrall everyone. Here are 7 Wonderfully Weird Beaches in the World.
1. Crosby Beach, Merseyside, England
Stepping out to this beach, you will be forgiven in thinking you are not alone. Surrounded by more than 100 completely life-like human figurines, upon closer inspection you will see that they are made from cast iron. In fact, it is a life art exhibition made and cast by Anthony Gormley, a sculptor whose very own nude statue forms part of the human forest on the beach front. At high tide the statues sink into sea, only to rise again when the tide ebbs.
