An old Sherman tank lays rusting on Flamenco Beach on the small island of Culebra off the coast of Puerto Rico. The entire island was once controlled by the U.S. Navy around WWII, but thanks to a series of peaceful protests, the Navy left the island, leaving two tanks that were used as bombing practice and a number of unexploded bombs.

Now Flamenco Beach is known as the best beach in the United States thanks to it's calm surf and nearly perfect white sand.
