A lot of amazing places in the world aren’t popular tourist destinations because it’s difficult to get to them. But aren’t these cozy islands, azure waters, flower fields, and stunning waterfalls worth visiting? All of them look like they belong in fairy tales.
Bright Side collected 15 secret places on our planet that most tourists haven’t heard of yet. Don’t miss a chance to be among the first explorers!
Blagaj, Bosnia and Herzegovina
Blagaj is a tiny village nestled among small waterfalls and surrounded with azure waters. Cozy white houses and a monastery are located under a sheer cliff. This is a sacred place for dervishes and Sufis who have built the village in this corner of paradise.
Huacachina is an oasis town in the middle of a vast desert. The road from Lima, Peru’s capital, to this lovely place takes about 5 hours.
The population of the town is about 200 people, so you can cut yourself off from the world there. Also, you can ride a sandboard on the Peruvian hills.
Lake Hillier, Australia
Just imagine sandy beaches surrounded by eucalyptus forests at the pinkest lake in the world… Lake Hillier is located in Middle Island in the south-west of Australia. The only way you can get there is by airplane. The place was discovered in 1802, and it remains pink all year round! It was assumed that some seaweeds and micro-organisms made the place pink, but subsequent studies haven’t confirmed this. Therefore, no one knows why the water has this unusual color.
Hidden Beach, Marieta Islands, Mexico
Hidden Beach (Playa de Amor) is a secret beach with pure water and a large variety of birds living there. You can get to this solitary piece of paradise only by water. After sailing through a maze of underwater caves for a few minutes, you will discover a wonderful beach lost in the depths of the island.
The Silfra Fissure, Iceland
The Silfra Fissure is located in the Thingvellir National Park in Iceland. This is a favorite place of divers and adventurers. It is possible to lose the sense of depth here because the cold water is incredibly pure. You can see through 300 meters of it!
