Located on the coast of Belize, The Great Blue Hole is a world-class destination for scuba divers. It’s the largest natural sinkhole of its kind being 125 meters deep and 300 meters across. The Great Blue Hole’s astonishing beauty is the top contender of this list. Even if you’re not much into scuba diving, its beauty is visible from the above too.
Antelope Canyon, Arizona
Located in Arizona, Antelope Canyon is one of the most popular places for photographers as well as tourists. But you can’t travel Antelope Canyon independently. You have to travel through a licensed tour operator. It is divided into two parts- Upper and Lower Antelope Canyon. It is quite risky there during the monsoon season. Antelope Canyon is always surrounded by flash flood danger. But it is a risk worth taking if you love traveling.
Sea Of Stars, Maldives
Located in the Vaadhoo island, Sea of stars is one of the iconic destinations of Maldives. It is famous for its beach, where you will see sparkling seawater when waves crash on the beach. The water glows in the dark and acts like a mirror which reflects star from the sky. The island of Vaadhoo has a population of fewer than 500 people. If you ever plan to visit there, travel between July and February to experience the best view of the sparkling water glowing around the beach.
Underwater Waterfall, Mauritius
There is something so
Rainbow Mountains, China
The Rainbow Mountains of China is one of the most creative demonstrations of nature. These mountains are a geological wonder of the world. Located in the Zhangye Danxia Geopark, the visit to Rainbow Mountains will give you a feeling of Disneyland rides. It’s always quite busier in the Mountains region than the rest of the Geopark. At some place, the view of the real nature is shifted by other attractions. But luckily the area is so huge, you can quickly jump onto a bus and reach a peaceful section. The view gets better when the sun gets lower in the sky. The best time to visit these mountains is after a rain as it saturates the color of the mountains a bit more. Besides this, the whole Geopark is full of surprises.
Located on the south coast of Western Australia, the water of Lake Hillier is completely pink. The vibrant color of the lake is permanent and does not alter when the water is taken into a container. The lake is completely safe to swim, even though it has high salt content. Though, you will find a lot of people advising not to swim in it. If you are planning to visit there, consider air as your best mode of transportation.
Socotra Island, Yemen
Stepping onto Socotra Island is like setting foot on an alien landscape. This place is one of the most isolated landforms on earth. Located in the Arabian Sea, south of Yemen, the island separated from the mainland of Africa between six and seven million years ago. There are nearly 700 endemic species on Socotra that are found no where else on the planet. Besides this, the most exciting Socotra species is the dragon’s blood tree. This otherworldly gem has experienced threats to its ecology from human development. But with the efforts from UNESCO, it’s now open for all. UNESCO designated it as a UNESCO heritage site in 2008.
Reed Flute Caves, China
The Reed Flute Caves are also known as The Place of Natural Arts. It has been a landmark and tourist attraction for over 1200 years now. These are natural limestone cave with multicolored lightning. Though it was opened for public in 1962, it is considered to be over 180 million years old. The cave got its name from the type of reed growing outside, which can be made into flutes.

Also, it’s enormously popular attracting more than two million tourists every year. It was built in the 12th century as a place for Hindu worship. By the end of the century, it was converted to Buddhist uses. Moreover, it has now become a symbol of Cambodia. One can see its appearance on the national flag of Cambodia. It is based in 162.6 hectares and is one of the must-visit places to visit before you die.

Iguazu Falls are one of the modern natural wonders of the world. This staggering waterfall system is the largest of its kind. It is located on the Argentina- Brazil border. This natural attraction is unique, making it accessible to three different countries. Besides Brazil and Argentina, it’s accessible by the people of Paraguay as well. Undoubtedly, something this beautiful needs to be shared. Effectively, it’s a chain of mini waterfalls which makes the largest waterfall system of the world.
Bora Bora, French Polynesia
If you’re looking for a romantic honeymoon spot or a relaxing place to get away, Bora Bora is your ideal destination. Located in the Pacific Ocean, this group of French Polynesian islands has virtually everything we associate with paradise. Some of the eye-catching things are its palm trees, green mountains, sandy beaches, and vibrant coral reefs. The whole area is as pretty as a postcard. It has a lot of beautiful resorts but nothing comes in competition with its natural beauty.
