Vic Beach in Iceland

The black sand beaches formed as a result of volcanic activity are impressive landscapes, more reminiscent of the landscapes of science fiction films. Vic Beach in Iceland is one of those natural wonders.

Located near the village of Vic, from which it got its name, this beach impresses with a realistic illusion of chernozem lands on the coast instead of sand. In fact, this is real sand, only formed from solidified lava and ash. Unlike Hawaiian black beaches pleasing the atmosphere of a tropical paradise, Vic Beach is not so hospitable.

Navagio Beach in Greece

You can get to some of the most picturesque corners of the planet only by water – on a yacht or boat. Among them is one of the most beautiful beaches in the world – Navagio.
Impressive unspoilt sandy beach is located in the inaccessible bay of the Greek Zakynthos, part of the Ionian Islands. It received its name, meaning “shipwreck”, from the events that took place here in 1983 and whose echo still serves as one of the most unusual sights of these places. It was here that in an attempt to avoid persecution by the authorities, the smuggling vessel suddenly ran aground. Subsequently, during one of the severe storms, the ship was washed ashore, and so far on Navajo beach you can see its rusted skeleton, reminding that the sea does not forgive mistakes.
