Door or beach

Do you see a beach or a door? People are divided over what this picture REALLY is... find out the truth below.

Forget the blue or gold dress, or the pink or green trainers - 'beach or door' is the new illusion dividing people everywhere.

The image, shared on social media by a woman called Becky, has turned viral as people have been left scratching their heads as to what it is they're actually seeing. 

When vertical, the image looks decidedly more like a door; with the beige colour resembling rough brickwork, the green being a door frame, and the blue as the door itself.

However, turned on its side, the beige becomes the sand, the green becomes the sea and the blue becomes the sky.

Things got pretty heated on Twitter as people argued their points:

Becky kept the answer shtum for a few days, before finally revealing the correct answer.

Posting a wider shot of the original image, Becky announced it was, in fact, a beach.

The original image sees a series of people enjoying a dip, proving that those who believed it to be a door were totally wrong!
