Beach

From 1838-1902, it was illegal to go swimming during the daytime at public beaches in Australia.

A beach was stolen from Jamaica in 2008. The 500 truckloads of sand are still missing to this day.

George Lucas and Steven Spielberg first discussed the idea of Indiana Jones while building a sand castle on the beach.

Australia has over 10,000 beaches -- You could visit a new beach everyday for over 27 years.

Praia do Cassino (Casino Beach), the southernmost beach of the Brazilian coast on the South Atlantic, in the state of Rio Grande do Sul, is the longest uninterrupted sandy beach in the world. It’s either 132 miles or 158 miles long depending on how it’s measured.

The next longest seashore is Victoria’s Ninety Mile Beach, the 90-mile stretch of golden sand that separates the Gippsland Lakes from Bass Strait in Australia.

New Zealand's Ninety-Mile Beach is only 55 miles long.

The fresh, salty smell of beach air is actually the smell of rotting seaweed.
