Description: Bombay Beach used to be right on the shore of the Salton Sea, over 200 feet below sea level.
It was once a swank beach hot-spot where the likes of The Beach Boys, Frank Sinatra and Bing Crosby hung out.
But then the Salton Sea started to recede and the town shrank. It still boasts 200+ residents and it has a funky art collective feel.
Location: Salton Sea, California, USA, North America
