From the black sands of Iceland to the bioluminescent coastlines of the Maldives, we’ve seen many unusual beaches around the world that showcase Mother Nature’s most beautiful phenomenons. If visiting these weird and wonderful beaches is on your bucket list, you might want to add one more destination to your list. Situated in Corralejo, a town on the Canary island of Fuerteventura, there’s a coastline that looks like it’s paved with popcorn.

Aptly known as Popcorn Beach or Popcorn Bay, from afar it looks like any scenic beach on the Spanish island, but up close you’ll see what looks like millions of popcorn pieces. The strange, irregular fragments are actually pieces of white coral that have washed ashore. Mixed with the volcanic rocks and sand on the beach, the coastline looks like a delicious sweet and salty combination of popcorn and black pepper—just don’t be tempted to take a bite!

The phenomenon isn’t new to the area, but Popcorn Bay has become popular amongst Instagrammers recently, who have been posting images of themselves with the endless supply of popcorn-shaped coral. Some have even posed pretending to eat the beachy kernels, but trust us, they won’t taste good.
