Idyllic bomb site

Capture

Often referred to as the world’s most idyllic bomb site, the Marieta Islands were used as bomb practice by the Mexican government in the early 1900s.

Over the years, tides have brought sand and water in to fill these holes, creating breathtaking beaches hidden from the outside world.” (from here)
