The Popcorn Beach in Canary Islands

A beach on Fuerteventura,  Canary Islands, where the sand looks like popcorn. The beach is made up of miniature white corals that got washed up on shore. The corals get their irregular shape from the sea and friction. The phenomenon isn’t new, but has recently gotten the attention of social media users after visitors to the Fuertaventura beach have posted their snaps on Instagram.
