A floating artificial island built in Mexico by British artist Richart "Rishi" Sowa. He's first Island was destroyed by a hurricane in 2005; a replacement, Joyxee Island, has been open for tours since 2008.
In the waters of Isla Mujeres, the "Island of Women", near Cancun. It opened for tours in August, 2008.
The new island was initially 20 metres (66 ft) in diameter, which has since expanded to 25 metres (82 ft), and plants and mangroves are already growing on it. It contains about 100,000 bottles. The new island has three beaches, a house, two ponds, a solar-powered waterfall and river, a wave-powered washing machine and solar panels. Volunteers helped with the project. Sowa will continue to make improvements to the Island, so it will always be a work of art in progress.

Spiral Island has been featured in a number of newspapers and TV documentaries around the world, including in Japan and South Korea, and has been featured in an episode of the Ripley's Believe It or Not! TV series, and on the MTV program Extreme Cribs in 2011.

Wonder if some of the plastic used in this project will slowly leach toxins into the water.
WOW... very cool.

15 Photos Nasa Doesn't Want An Island made from plastic 1 day ago   10:19

From strange images captured by the mars rover, to some unbelievable rocket engineering mistakes, here are 15 strange photos nasa doesn’t want you to see!

5. Aral Sea
Nasa probably doesn’t want you to see these satellite shots of the aral sea. The entire lake that was once the 4th largest in the world disappearing should not happen. The water level decreased so quickly, that wreckage of fishing boats like this photo are in the dry lake bed! Unbelievable ideas from Soviet engineers were to begin diverting the water in order to build cotton plantations. The Aral lost a huge amount of water due to evaporation that will never be replaced. This has negatively affected nearby countries like Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan. It’s basically now a dry, salty, toxic wasteland with soil that contains chemicals from weapons testing, pesticides, and fertilizers. We doubt anyone will be able to grow anything here anymore.

4. The White Knight Satellite
UFO hunters went into a frenzy when they saw this mysterious white orb floating in the sky during the endeavor mission in 2011. As the massive fuel tank was heading back to earth, a mysterious, almost metallic looking object comes into view. Is it a floating plastic bag? Possible some space junk, or a piece of paper let out by one of the people on the shuttle? Some thought it was a parachute at first but nasa doesn’t really use parachutes for their external fuel tanks and just kind of let them get burnt up in the atmosphere.

3. UFO Refueling
The sun is a star that is responsible for a majority of the energy in our solar system and without it, humans could not survive on planet earth. Is it a little bit too far fetched to believe that some spacecraft might have found a way to harness the sun’s power. Or are they trying to alter it, in order to destroy us? About 6-7 years ago, Russian scientists claim to have spotted strange UFOs everyday near the sun. These bizarre images spotted by the Solar Heliospheric Observatory shows orbs just floating around the sun! What could they possibly be. As ufologists begin to study photos of NASA, they are able to spot strange things like this. Their theory is that they may be able to control the sun's temperature or that they are using the sun to harvest some type of rare powerful element.
