Strange Place: A Beautifully Fake Beach in Japan
March 4, 2012 4 Comments
Seagaia Ocean Dome is the largest artificial beach in the world.
It is a part of the Sheraton Seagaia Resort in Mayazaki, Japan. The artificial beach is about 300 meters long and 100 meters wide, allowing an estimated 10,000 tourists to fit comfortably in it all at once.
One of the main attractions is its fake flame-spitting volcano, which becomes active every 15 minutes and spits fire every hour. This helps make the artificial waves more powerful for the surfers’ that visit the beach. Obviously, the sand is artificial along with the palm trees, and the retractable roof (largest in the world) has a permanent blue sky. This allows people to go to the beach even on the ugliest days.
