班堡城堡,诺森伯兰郡,英格兰

班堡城堡坐落在英格兰诺森伯兰郡班堡地区,矗立在海岸旁边突出的黑色火山岩上。图中所展示的是班堡沙丘,班堡城堡和附近的海滩就掩映在该地区独特的沙质地貌中。班堡城堡曾经是盎格鲁-撒克逊人的战略要塞,经过几个世纪的演变,形成了如今这座宏伟的建筑。这座城堡在抵御维京人的入侵中曾发挥了关键作用。然而,北欧人摧毁了城堡最初的防御工事,之后在中世纪期间又对其进行了重大改造。城堡还是古代诺森伯兰王国的所在地,这是一个中世纪的盎格鲁-撒克逊王国,位于今天的英格兰北部和苏格兰东南部。班堡城堡面朝北海,被生机盎然的绿草所环绕,怀抱如此美景,班堡城堡成为了许多电影的取景地,比如《麦克白》、《夺宝奇兵:命运之盘》、《艾芬豪》等。

宁静之地 A quiet place, indeed

普拉亚德尔锡伦西奥,西班牙

西班牙的阿斯图里亚斯地区以其自然美景、丰富的艺术遗产和美食而闻名。此外,该地区还有许多隐藏的“宝藏”,照片上的“寂静海滩”就是其中之一。寂静海滩是一个贝壳形状的小海湾,该地不仅环境清幽,还有一个天然的露天岩石剧场。海滩远离市区,没有商业气息和喧闹的人群。在这里,险峻的悬崖和金色的沙滩是散心冥想的理想之地,而附近的洞穴和水上活动则为渴望冒险的游客提供了刺激的体验。

海岸线上的地质奇观是由石英岩历经数百万年才形成的:当石英颗粒逐渐取代原始岩石并保持其纹理时,这一壮丽的景观也就随之出现了。这些岩石有着复杂的纹和颜色,其中一些看起来就像古旧的木头。

Playa del Silencio, Spain

Spain's Asturias region, known for its greenery, artistic legacy, and excellent food, has many hidden gems. Our homepage image shows Playa del Silencio, or Beach of Silence, a shell-shaped cove with a natural rock amphitheater. Far away from urban areas and noisy crowds, the beach enjoys a sense of isolation and solitude. Rugged cliffs surround golden sands perfect for soaking up its peaceful vibes, while nearby caves and water activities provide exciting adventures for those who crave them.

The rocky shoreline seen here is made of quartzite, formed over millions of years. This spectacular display was created when quartz grains gradually replaced the original rock while maintaining its texture. With their intricate patterns and colors, some of these rocks resemble ancient wood.

壮观的自然古迹

甜面包海蚀柱,撒丁,意大利

马苏阿是意大利伊格莱西亚斯市的一个小镇,周围环绕着地中海植物群,两侧是高耸的石灰岩悬崖。 那些喜欢钓鱼、浮潜或水肺潜水的人会喜欢这个位置,因为这里晶莹剔透的海水和极佳的能见度。然而,壮丽的甜面包海蚀柱是一个巨大的石堆,从海滩前的水面上浮现出来——事实证明是它是该海湾的主要景点。它的名字来源于巴西里约热内卢的一个命名为甜面包的海蚀柱岩层,由于与它惊人的相似,游客们都会与它联系在一起。尽管甜面包海蚀柱的表面积只有30平方米,但它却异常高大,高出海面133米。小岛的西北和东南两侧有天然的拱门和画廊,石头是在这些地方被侵蚀而雕刻出来的。 如果有人敢的话,一艘小船可以穿过那里的一条隧道

世界上最独特的海滩? The world's most exclusive beach?

“我爱你”沙滩,桑给巴尔,坦桑尼亚

Nakupenda 海滩自然保护区位于桑给巴尔西海岸外的一个小沙上。 这个沙洲被印度洋碧绿的海水所环绕,是游客沐浴阳和享受金色沙滩的热门目的地。 在海浪之下,海洋生物创造了一个充满活力的海底世界,非常适合浮潜。 坦桑尼亚的岛屿是奔巴角鸮和非洲鱼雕等一系列野生动物的家园。 在 Nakupenda 以北,您可以在 Changuu 岛上遇到一个乌保护区,而他们的海龟表亲则在周围水域游泳。

Nakupenda Beach Nature Reserve, Zanzibar, Tanzania

Off the west coast of Zanzibar, the Nakupenda Beach Nature Reserve sits on a small, sandy island. Surrounded by the Indian Ocean, this sand bar is a popular destination with tourists looking to soak up the sun's rays on its white sands. Plentiful marine life here creates a vibrant underwater world that is perfect for snorkeling. The islands of Tanzania are home to an array of wildlife like the Pemba scops owl and the African fish eagle. To the north of Nakupenda, there is a giant tortoise sanctuary on Changuu Island, while their sea turtle cousins swim in the surrounding waters.

挑选你的乐园 Pick your paradise

蒂莫尼港海滩,希腊

蒂莫尼港海滩位于希腊科孚岛的西北部海岸,是一个具有自然魅力的迷人目的地。从历史悠久的阿菲奥纳斯村出发,通过风景优美的徒步旅行路线或乘前往,这个隐藏着的如宝石般的海岛拥有两个令人惊叹的海湾,形成了独特的双重海滩体验。蒂莫尼港拥有晶莹剔透的绿松石水域和引人注目的悬崖,呈现出如画的海岸全景。在海滩周围,郁郁葱葱的橄榄和柏树为这里增添了迷人的氛围。尽管像科孚岛这样的希腊岛屿似乎是永恒的、古老的,但它们在地球的历史上相对较新。一个主要的理论是,大约在530万年前,一场大洪水从大西洋涌入非洲和欧洲之间,这一事件被称为赞克尔期洪水。泊变成了海洋,以前的山顶变成了岛屿。

Porto Timoni beach, Greece

Porto Timoni beach, in Corfu, Greece, is a hidden gem reached either by boat, or by hiking from the historic village of Afionas. Those who make the journey are rewarded with two stunning coves, offering a unique double-beach experience. With clear turquoise waters and dramatic cliffs, Porto Timoni presents a picturesque coastal panorama. Surrounding the beach, lush olive groves and cypress trees add to its charm. Greek islands like Corfu may seem timeless and ancient but they are relatively new in the history of Earth. A leading theory is that around 5.3 million years ago, a great flood poured in between Africa and Europe from the Atlantic Ocean, an event called the Zanclean flood. Lakes became oceans and what were previously mountaintops became islands.

墨西哥的隐秘海滩 Secluded sands in Mexico

埃莫海滩,玛丽埃塔斯群,墨西哥

这张绝美的照片是在埃莫海滩拍摄的,这里又被称为“隐秘海滩”,位于墨西哥巴亚尔塔港西北处的偏远海岛,这里以其纯净的美景和独特的地貌而闻名。这处海滩只能通过一个自然侵蚀形成的隧道到达。沙滩和周围的岩壁组成了一个仰望天空的天窗,碧蓝的天空、绿松石色的海水、长满鲜花的崖壁相互映衬,景色独一无二。埃莫海滩又称“爱情海滩”,已经是一个热门的旅游目的地,但是为了保护这里的自然风景和生态环境,当地限制了游客数量。

Playa del Amor, Marietas Islands, Mexico

This gorgeous shot was taken at Playa del Amor—aka Hidden Beach—a remote destination off the coast of Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, known for its pristine beauty. To get to it, visitors need to take a boat toward the mouth of Banderas Bay at the base of the Marietas Islands. Once there, they swim through a tunnel at low tide to reach the beach. The walls hide a sandy cove, where the turquoise waters contrast with flora-laden cliffs that perfectly frame the blue sky overhead. Playa del Amor (Lovers' Beach) is popular among tourists, but the number of visitors is limited to preserve its natural beauty and ecosystem.

艺术天堂追逐夏天 Chasing summer in the art world

迈阿密海滩巴塞尔艺术展

每年12月,艺术世界的中心不是在纽约东京伦敦,而是在一个以宽阔的沙滩古巴咖啡馆和刚果节奏而闻名的小镇。迈阿密巴塞尔艺术博览会(Art Basel Miami Beach)于今天结束了为期三天的展览,是在瑞士巴塞尔(该艺术节于1970年开始)、香港巴黎举办的国际艺术博览会的美国站。该活动已有20年的历史,是北美最全面的当代艺术博览会,吸引了数千名艺术家、经销商、收藏家、欣赏者,以及寻求乐趣的游客,参加一年一度的创意盛会。

Art Basel Miami Beach

Every December the center of the art world convenes not in New York, Tokyo, or London, but in a town known more for its wide sandy beaches, café Cubano, and conga rhythms. Art Basel Miami Beach, which wraps up its three-day run today, is the American leg of an international art fair also staged in Basel, Switzerland (where the festival started in 1970), Hong Kong, and Paris. The event, now 20 years old, is the most comprehensive contemporary art fair in North America, attracting thousands of artists, dealers, collectors, appreciators, and just fun-seeking tourists for this annual burst of creativity steps from the sand.

回到过去 Stepping back in time

侏罗纪海岸世界遗产地,英格兰

回溯1.99亿年,前往英国多塞特的侏罗纪海岸世界遗产地。这幅令人惊叹的化石展示图被称为“氨岩路面”,数千块化石被埋藏在蒙茅斯海滩西端的石灰岩岩架中。虽然菊石看起来很像蜗牛壳,但它们是已灭绝海洋生物的化石,与当今的章鱼或鱿鱼关系更为密切。英国自然历史博物馆(British’s Natural History Museum)指出,由于菊石的数量和大小,这个充满化石的岩架在世界上是独一无二的:化石直径高达27英寸。如果你想看看,时间就是低潮时岩壁出现的一切,附近的大岩石中也有更多的菊石。

今天是国家化石日,在这一天,我们庆祝着这个迷人的灭绝动植物世界。这并非巧合,它发生在地球科学周期间:我们可以从这个可见、可触摸的过去遗产中更多地了解我们的星球和所有生物。

Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site, England

Travel back 199 million years with a trip to the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site in Dorset, England. This stunning fossil display is known as the Ammonite Pavement, and thousands of these fossils are embedded in a limestone ledge at the west end of Monmouth Beach. Although the ammonites look rather like snail shells, these are fossils of extinct sea creatures that are more closely related to today's octopus or squid. Britain's Natural History Museum notes that the fossil-filled ledge is unique in the world because of the sheer number and size of the ammonites: The fossils reach up to 27 inches in diameter. If you want to check them out, timing is everything—the ledge emerges at low tide, and there are more ammonites in large rocks nearby, too.

Today is National Fossil Day, when we celebrate the fascinating world of extinct creatures and plants. It's no coincidence that it falls during Earth Science Week: We can learn more about our planet and all living things from this visible, touchable legacy of our past.

印度的里维埃拉 The Riviera of India

Arambol Beach, Goa, India

Known for its immense, densely populated cities, India also has a seemingly endless coastline. And no part of it is more languid and lovely than Arambol, in the small and special state of Goa on the southwestern coast. Arambol is a popular holiday town with the vibe of a sleepy fishing village—which it was once was. Now visitors from around the world drawn to its tropical climate, rainforest valleys, historic architecture, sandy beaches, blue waters, and swaying coconut palms bring a new energy to Arambol.

Goa is distinct from much of India as it was colonized by Portugal while Great Britain ruled the rest. The Portuguese Empire conquered Goa in the early 1500s and ruled it until 1961, when it was annexed by India. The influence of the Portuguese can be seen in Goa's Catholic churches and convents, as well as in the name of the state's largest city: Vasco da Gama, after the explorer who once governed Goa.

If history isn't your thing, Arambol is famous for a drum circle and flea market held on the beach a few hours before sunset. It's just as much a beach party as a market. Craftspeople sell handmade wares while musicians join impromptu performances. There's no better way to end your day in Goa, land of sand and spice and sun.

阿兰波海滩,果阿,印度

印度以其巨大而人口稠密的城市而闻名,其海岸线似乎无穷无尽。在西南海岸的小而特殊的果阿州,没有一个地方比Arambol更慵懒和可爱。Arambol是一个受欢迎的度假小镇,有着一个沉睡的渔村的氛围,它曾经是一个渔村。现在,来自世界各地的游客被其热带气候、雨林山谷、历史建筑、沙滩、蓝色水域和摇曳的椰子所吸引,为Arambol带来了新的活力。

果阿不同于印度的大部分地区,因为它曾被葡萄牙殖民,而英国统治其余地区。15世纪初,葡萄牙帝国征服了果阿,并统治了它,直到1961年被印度吞并。葡萄牙人的影响可以在果阿的天主教教堂修道院中看到,也可以在该国最大城市瓦斯科·达伽马(Vasco da Gama)的名字中看到,瓦斯科·达·伽马是曾经统治果阿的探险家。

如果你不喜欢历史,那幺Arambol以日落前几个小时在海滩上举行的鼓圈和跳蚤市场而闻名。这是一个海滩派对,也是一个市场。工匠们出售手工制品,音乐家们则参加即兴表演。在果阿,没有更好的方式来结束你的一天,这是一个充满沙子、香料和阳的地方。
