At a glance, Australia’s Inskip Point looks like a small strip of paradise. Yes, the sandy peninsula – surrounded by vividly blue waters – seems as though it could be the perfect place to get away from it all. But on one evening, the ground at the beauty spot begins to rumble. And even more alarmingly, the sand that lies just inches away from visitors’ feet appears to vanish entirely. In fact, it could very well be the beginning of the end for this picturesque part of Queensland.

That’s right: on September 24, 2018, reports began to emerge of a void opening up along the shores of Inskip Point. And, shockingly, this 25-foot-wide hole could ultimately signal disaster for the beach’s future, as experts have since warned that the whole area could itself be swallowed up at some point.
