Really Weird Things That Were Washed Up On The Shore

Giant pipes 6.5 feet in diameter (2 meters) fell into the sea during transportation. Norfolk inhabitants were extremely surprised to find them on the beach in August 2017. The longest pipe was 1,640 feet (500 meters).

A LEGO toy

East News

A giant LEGO toy (about 8 feet tall) was washed up on the shore in Zandvoort, Netherlands. At first, the people on the beach were very surprised, but then they set it up and started taking pictures with it. It is still unknown where the toy came from, and the Dutch branch of LEGOLAND claimed they had nothing to do with it.



After the cargo ship Napoli was wrecked in 2007, a few containers were washed up on the shore in Devon, England. People who wanted to get inside the cargo containers rushed to the beach. Some of them got wine barrels, and those who were even luckier got BMW motorcycles.

Missile debris


Missile debris was found on one of the beaches in Japan in 2016. It was probably a part of the North Korean missile that was launched the same year.

In January 2017, children from Langeoog (an island in Germany) got extremely lucky: thousands of Kinder Eggs and LEGO toys washed up on the beach. A cargo ship lost a few containers during a storm, and their contents ended up on this beach.

A flow meter


This mysterious object that was found on the beach in Iceland is not a UFO. This is an acoustic Doppler flow meter: a device that helps to measure the speed of flow in the depths of the ocean.

After the 2011 tsunami, this giant white mass was washed up on the shore. Someone thought that this was a new creature, possibly a giant octopus. But when scientists took samples, they said that this mass is the leftovers of a shark or whale.
