1- Lake Hillier, Western Australia
The Recherche Archipelago is a group of islands off the coast of Australia. According to some experts, because of high salinity paired with the presence of salt-loving algae called Dunaliella salina and pink bacteria called halobacteria, The lake’s deep pink colour remains the same all year.
2- Glass Beach, USA
This gleaming sea glass beach in California is a fascinating result of years of trash strewn on the shore. This was not stopped until the 1960s, by which time the sea had been clogged with everything from electrical gadgets to bottles and cans. The waves eventually shattered everything into colourful pebbles, and the beach became a popular tourist destination — one that is now under threat, unfortunately, because people are taking the glass home with them. The beaches in the state aren’t entirely made of glass!
Pamukkale (Cotton Palace) is a spectacular UNESCO World Heritage Site in southwest Turkey that also includes the ancient ruins of Hierapolis, the once great city that was built around it. Water pours down the white travertine terraces from natural springs, forming lovely thermal pools ideal for a brief dip. To have a guide with you, we recommend taking a small group trip. You may have never heard of Pamukkale in Turkey before, and you may not even be aware of these Turkey facts.
4- Spotted Lake, Canada
Located in British Columbia, Canada, Spotted Lake Khiluk is the world’s most mineralized lake. Another strange location that makes the list of the strangest places on the planet. There are 365 distinct pools in the lake, which are placed in a bizarre mosaic-like design. Each of these locations is supposed to contain a unique and highly concentrated chemical substance that can treat a variety of ailments. Definitely one of the world’s nicer oddest places.
5- The Nasca Lines, Peru
Some of the mysterious shapes are up to 200 metres long and are executed in a single continuous line, visible only from the air or from a metal viewing tower beside the highway. Located in Peru, it is, without a doubt, one of the oddest places on the planet.
6- Socotra Island, Yemen
This lonely island, which was separated from mainland Africa more than six million years ago, seems like something out of a science fiction movie. Because of Socotra’s extraordinary and unique biodiversity, there are plants and trees found nowhere else on the planet, like the old and twisted dragon’s blood tree and the bulbous bottle tree, which are particularly strange.
7- The Hand in the Desert, Chile
This strange work of art, growing out of the sand in the centre of Chile’s Atacama desert, 46 miles south of Antofagasta, is the creation of Chilean sculptor Mario Irarrázabal. Irarrázabal is recognized for his works that depict human pain, and this massive unsettling sculpture evokes a sense of loneliness, which is heightened by its desolate and isolated setting.
The 1700-odd conical hills of Bohol, Philippines, dot the centre of the island. They vary in height, but their shape is so consistent that they may be mistaken for man-made. According to UNESCO, they are the result of precipitation erosion and the uplift of coral deposits. Only during the dry season, when the foliage turns from rich green to brown, do the hills earn their moniker of “chocolate.”
9- Red Beach, China
This beach is covered in a species of seaweed called Sueda, which turns a vivid red colour in the autumn. These tidal wetlands, located 30 kilometres southwest of Panjin, are an important wildlife reserve for migrating birds. Only a small area of the beach is exposed to the public, but a wooden path that goes out to sea can be explored. One of China’s best-kept secrets may be Red Beach. Before the masses gather, visit these and several other hidden beaches across the world.
10- Goblin Valley State Park, Utah, USA
This isn’t Mars; it’s an undeveloped valley in Utah, 216 miles southeast of Salt Lake City. Wind and water have worn soft sandstone for many years, forming bizarre pinnacles or hoodoos that some believe resemble goblins. The bizarre formations are only about a mile across and two miles long, but it’s well worth exploring the marked trails to get up close to them.
11- Kandovan village, Iran
Tucked away in the northwest corner of Iran is the quaint and mysterious thirteenth-century village of Kandovan. What makes Kandovan village so unique is that many of its homes have been made in caves located in cone-shaped, naturally formed compressed volcanic ash formations that make the landscape look like a gigantic termite colony. This method of dwelling makes the residents’ modern-age cave dwellers or troglodytes.
12- Fly Geyser, United States
This extraterrestrial geyser can be found on private land on the outskirts of Nevada’s Black Rock Desert. A scorching fountain erupts up to five feet high today after an energy firm bore down into geothermal waters in 1964, and the consequent mineral build-up means the cone is increasing by several inches each year. The thermophilic algae are responsible for the spectacular red and green hues.
13- Cat Island, Japan
The Japanese Cat Island has to be one of the strangest places on the planet. Tashirojima, a short boat ride from Japan’s east coast, is home to a hundred humans who are considerably outnumbered by their canine companions. Mice are a natural predator of silkworms, and cats were originally promoted since the island produced silk. They were considered lucky by the local fishermen. There is even a cat temple on the island, as well as newly constructed cat-shaped cabins for travellers to stay in. It should go without saying that dogs are not permitted. Do not miss this island in Japan.
14- Salar De Uyuni, Bolivia
The world’s largest salt pan, as well as one of the strangest sites on the planet, is located in the Potos and Oruro departments. It’s also the world’s largest natural mirror when a thin layer of water forms on the surface. The best view of this space may be had from Incahuasi Island in the centre. Salar de Uyuni is the dried-up remains of a prehistoric lake, leaving behind a void of bright-white salt, granite formations, and cacti-islands. Large flocks of gorgeous pink flamingos can be observed grazing in the water at this location. The months of July and October are ideal for visiting this location. This is without a doubt one of the strangest places on the planet.
15- Eternal Flame Falls, United States
One of the strangest places on the planet is the Eternal Flame Falls. It is, however, a charming waterfall in Western New York’s Shale Creek Preserve, which is part of Chestnut Ridge Park. Natural gas is emitted by a little item near the base of the waterfall. It can be lit to make a flame, which is unusual. This flame can be seen all year. It can go out and needs to be re-lit from time to time. Natural gas fuels the flame, which burns brightly right next to a waterfall.
16- Christ Of The Abyss, Italy
This is a 2.5 METERS TALL bronze statue of Jesus Christ that is submerged in water. Deep-sea divers’ favourite spot, and undoubtedly one of the strangest underwater locations on the planet. Guido Galletti’s submerged bronze statue of Jesus Christ is one of the top tourist attractions in Italy for thrill lovers. The original duplicate of the same can be found in the Mediterranean Sea, between Camogli and Portofino, off the coast of San Fruttuoso. Don’t miss the opportunity to get amazed by this underwater statue in beautiful Italy.
17- Caño Cristales, Colombia
This Colombian river glows red throughout the hot months. The riverbed is covered by a peculiar variety of plants that turns red, making it one of the strangest places on the planet. Another one of those enigmatic underwater locations on the planet. The “River of Five Colors” or the “Liquid Rainbow” are two names for the river. It has been dubbed the most beautiful body of water on the planet. You can watch the water cascade down the rocks in slow motion here.
18- Confluence Of Rhone And Arve Rivers, Switzerland
These two Swiss rivers have a distinct colour difference; one is blue and the other is brown. Due to the disparity in density, they never entirely mix. They come together in Geneva, Switzerland. It’s difficult to stroll through this stunning natural wonder without feeling overwhelmed by all that nature has to offer. Go ahead and Google this location to see some gorgeous images of it. The grandeur of one of Switzerland’s most picturesque locations will take your breath away.
19- Sea Of Stars, Maldives
The marine region near Vaadhoo Island looks like the Sea of Stars at night, thanks to bioluminescent sea plankton that glows bright blue. Every year, millions of people flock to Vaadhoo Island in the Maldives to see the sea of stars. After the sea was featured in far and few Bollywood and Hollywood films, tourist traffic seemed to be increasing. The Maldives is one of the world’s cheapest getaways, and this beach is one of the strangest places on the planet. So, what’s holding you back from seeing this?
20- Pink Sands Beach, The Bahamas
Because of the presence of specific minerals and plankton, the sand at this beach appears pink in hue. The pink colour derives from foraminifera, a microscopic organism with a reddish-pink shell, according to recent scientific studies. Coral, shells, and calcium carbonate make up the sand. There are only a handful of pink sand beaches on the globe. The rarity of these beaches adds to their allure and mystique among the general public.
21- Richat Structure, Mauritania
This is a desert building with a diameter of over 30 miles. It resembles a giant fossil and is one of the world’s most unusual locations. Maybe a landing strip for alien spaceships? It’s a large, circular structure smack in the centre of Mauritania. The charming desert village of Ouadane in western Mauritania in western North Africa is the gateway to the destination. Make sure to pack for the weather at your destination. Keep an eye on the weather.
22- Dead Sea, Israel/Jordan
Can’t swim? No problem! Because of the high concentration of salt and other minerals in the water, the Dead Sea, a salt lake, will allow you to float effortlessly. With a salinity of roughly 34%, the Dead Sea is ten times as salty as the ocean. A word of caution: if you open your eyes while in the water, it will sting a lot. It’s a hostile environment. Surprisingly, it was inhabited by wild tribes during the Greek Era.
23- The Giant’s Causeway, Ireland
These perfectly straight boulders protruding out of the water are the consequence of an ancient volcanic outburst. This area was subjected to violent volcanic eruptions around 60 million years ago. People discovered pillar-like structures thrusting out when the lava cooled and the smoke that had engulfed the area dissipated. They were astounded, and they set out to learn more about the Giant’s Causeway’s origins. The hardness of these rocks has baffled scientists to until point.
24- Magnetic Hill, India
Magnetic Hill in Ladakh, India, is regarded as one of the most remarkable spots on the planet, where visitors can witness a genuinely extraordinary occurrence. When travelling across Ladakh, you will come across this location that pulls vehicles. Atop the Srinagar-Leh highway, this is essentially a little length of road on a hill. The secret is that if you park your car here and turn off the engine, your automobile will gradually begin to move on its own!
25- Easter Island Heads, Chile
There are innumerable carved effigies of huge heads sprawled across the beach, made by the Rapa Nui civilization back in the first millennium AD when this island wasn’t even called Easter Island. They were fashioned right out of the black rock rocks on the island, chiselled and chipped to perfection, by the Para Nui people using primitive tools. These Easter Island heads are some of the earliest evidence of prehistoric art, with many others being cave drawings and the like. They display a wonderful example of masonry and ingenuity at the period. They have undoubtedly made this island one of the most distinctive destinations to visit in the world for the millions of tourists who visit each year.
