It isn’t easy coming up with a list of the most beautiful places in the world that I’ve personally seen. I live in a city surrounded by concrete and tall buildings, and I often miss what mother nature has to offer. So my top 5 places visited are pretty remote, but well worth seeing.
- The first beautiful location I would recommend is Blue Lagoon, in Iceland.
It is full of man-made ponds fed by waters rich in minerals, that many believe can cure certain diseases. In the winter, the hot steam coming from the pond is surrounded by snow and ice, creating a tense atmosphere.
2. The next beautiful spot would have to be Haleakala National Park, on the island of Maui in Hawaii.
Haleakala attracts 1.5 million visitors every year and with a summit at 10,023 feet attracts “skywatchers” from around the world. The name Haleakala comes from the Hawaiian language, meaning house of the sun. According to legend, the demi-god of Maui would have kept the sun there to extend the time.
3. I am drawn to warm destinations and the next beautiful location would be St. Lucia in the Caribbean.
The Piton mountains are breathtakingly beautiful with so little built up around them they have a natural majestic beauty that is well worth seeing. We rented this beautiful home with a perfect view near Soufrière, Saint Lucia
4. Another beautiful place to visit is the Crater Lake National Park in Oregon, USA.
Native Americans witnessed its formation 7,700 years ago, when a violent eruption triggered the collapse of a tall peak. It has a remarkable purity: fed by rain and snow, and it is the deepest lake in the USA …and perhaps the most pristine on eart
5. Number 5 on my list is Cappadocia, Turkey
Cappadocia is located in Turkey with unique rock formations called “the despair of fairytale chimneys.” Cappadocia is formed by geology and volcanic activity, including weather and erosion, which took place in Islam about 60 million years ago. In 2000, Christians built the first church in one of the unique rocks of the region. And not to be missed is a balloon ride to capture the beautiful views the area offers.
