Glass Beach, California, USA
Nature has its own way to deal with things. And this glass beach is a result of that only. After years and years of collecting all the waste products and garbage that was dumped on the beach. It was in the year 1960 when the dumping of the garbage on the beach was banned but by that time, the sea got inundated by all the items that was dumped on the beach including bottles, cans, electrical appliances and much more. Everything that was once thrown into the water is now being ejected out by the sea in the form of colorful pebbles. Over time, the waves made the items softer, which then resulted in these colorful stones and now they are the reason, why the beach has become popular.
Socotra Island, Yemen
This remote island looks no less than a setup location which is read to shoot for a sci-fi movie. Everything about this place is a little weird, right from its unique and interesting wildlife to endemic and ancient plants including dragon’s blood trees and bottles trees. The island certainly has a very weird vibe to it and this might be one of the reasons why this area is separated from mainland Africa for millions and millions of years.
Located on the western side of turkey, Pamukkale is a small town that is known for its thermal pools where you can take a quick dip in the water.

This extraordinary place is the best example of history colliding with nature in the most astonishing and fascinating way. The surreal white travertine terraces, being overrun with warm water cascading from natural springs makes for such a stunning view. The water collected on the terraces make for a great thermal pool in which you can take a quick dip.
Spotted Lake, British Columbia, Canada
This lake is one of a kind and for that reason; it is definitely one of the places that is better seen in person. While during the winter and spring season, the lake may look just like any other water body but it’s during the summer season when it comes to its truest form. As the water starts to evaporate, the waterbed is left with several small spots containing the lake water. Each spot has a different hue to it which looks so beautiful and whimsical at the same time. The lake can be accessed via highway 3 which is located northwest of Osoyoos.
