Ocean Waves Transformed Russian Dumping Ground Into A Beautiful Beach.
Sadly, erosion has become a big issue on Glass Beach, which puts the tourist attraction at risk.
Those clear, green, red, and blue pebbles may be a thing of the past if the glass jewels are reclaimed by the sea, or if guests continue taking them as souvenirs. Some experts believe that the glass jewels will vanish in another generation.
The bay, and its nearby cliffs, remain a stunning place to visit, even if the shards vanish in 20 years.
Of course, the eminent threat of the Glass Beach going back to just being a beach hasn't deterred tourists from visiting the port. The obvious course of action to ensure that the glass jewels don't fade away would be to recreate the same trick and have the waves create more of the jewels.

The process that turned the glass shards into sea glass was a process that took time.
Currently, Russia has no plans to ask that people start dumping their glass bottles on the beach again, as this would lead to a lot of people getting cut. So in the meantime, you better book your ticket to Ussuri Bay, while there's still time.
