Video: Seeing this drone fly through Venice Beach in Robert McIntosh's Fresh Squeeze in what looks like a perfectly planned flight is just lovely. The drone zips through a bicycle, seamlessly slips inside handrails, pops into holes and cuts through structures so seamlessly that it feels like the world is unfolding before you. It's especially nice because it's going in reverse, so you don't see what you're going to see next until you already see it. Uh, if that makes any sense.

Video: The beauty of Venice Beach lies in its culture, the people that go there and the uniqueness of what's happening on the ground and all around the area. It's a special place, a true treasure of California's beach culture, and it's like no where else in the world. This drone flyby of Venice Beach shows you none of that and yet, it's still absolutely spectacular.
Video: There is peace when your feet sink into the sand and your ears hear the waves and your nose smells the salt. It's a beautiful feeling, standing on a beach and looking out into the ocean and imagining the edge of the world.

People like dawn because it's the start of the new day and the illusion of opportunity exists as light breaks the night. I like dawn because when I see the sun rise it meant I had a great night.

The C-130 Hercules can basically land whatever the hell it wants, so the Danish Air Force took it to the beach because a) it's fun! and b) you never know when you will have to invade a country. You can see it from multiple angles, including the cockpit. Bonus: A collection of all-terrain Hercules landings — and a carrier.
Some people go to the beach to take a dip in the water and get some sun. Jamie Harkins goes to the beach to take a journey to another world. Harkins is a fantastic artist who transforms a beach into alternate realities by creating 3D sand art. Sometimes his art looks like people are sailing in the lake, other times they're skating or diving or inside a robot. I want to go to the beach with him.
You think your beach towel is just some colourful barrier between your arse and the sand? Wrong. That water-wicking blanket is actually an intricately designed instrument, fine-tuned to provide you with the best possible poolside experience. And here's the thing: It's entirely possible that you've been using it wrong all along.
I don't know what's wrong with helicopters in Brazil, but they keep crashing them in the most idiotic ways possible. Check out this one, going a little bit too close to the beach until it finally crashes against the waves.
Remember all the hard work you put into sand castles as a little kid? Crouching, scooping and shaping. It was tough! And it was always for naught because the stupid ocean would eventually swallow your castles whole and wash it away. What if you could make sand castles live forever, though? Turns out you can.
There's nothing like a good bit of Dubai excess, but this just isn't impressive enough to justify the profligacy: the Palazzo Versace hotel is building a beach with refrigerated sand.
