This is Russia's kaleidoscope beach where nature has corrected man's ugly pollution and turned it into a place of beauty.

Once a Soviet-era dump for truckloads of old glass bottles and porcelain, the relentless waves on the country's Pacific coast have rounded and polished the debris.

On a sunny day, this Ussuri Bay beach close to the eastern naval port of Vladivostok seems to be covered in lighted candles beneath.

The throwaway debris - old beer, wine, vodka and champanski bottles - once posed dangers to locals from jagged broken glass.

But now nature has created a beach of gems which visitors pay to see, said the Siberian Times, which highlighted these stunning pictures.

The authorities in the Far East of Russia have declared the area a specially protected zone - called Glass Beach, sided by dazzling cliffs - as if it was an entirely natural creation.

The colourful glass shines in summer on the black volcanic sand, and in winter amid the white snow.

It is popular all year round with locals, and in summer swimmers and sunbathers come to the colourful recreation spot.
