Strange Locations From Around The World
Strange locations exist all around the world. Therefore we have selected a few of our favourite but strange destinations to share with you.
Lake Hillier – Australia
This remarkable vivid pink lake situates in Western Australia’s Recherche Archipelago. Caused by the high salinity of the water and with the added ingredient of salt-loving algae, this magical display of colour is truly an extraordinary sight. Surprisingly, it is safe to swim in this pink lake, so taking a quick dip here is definitely one for your bucket list!
The Giant’s Causeway – Northern Ireland
Sixty million years ago a huge volcanic eruption spewed out a mass of molten basalt across the Irish countryside. As the lava cooled, it cracked and formed the near perfect hexagon pillar shapes that can be seen today. There are over 37,000 columns that spread into the sea. You may know these “stepping stones” as the Giants Causeway, which is what they are commonly referred to around the world!
Rainbow Mountain – Peru
Rainbow Mountain was a special discovery due to its appearance! From pastel blues through to vibrant reds, greens and yellows. This sight is both stunning and mesmerising. But you will need to undertake a long and difficult trek to be one of the few who get to see this amazing show of colour.
The Bermuda Triangle – Atlantic Ocean
Well known as the Devil’s Triangle, this area of ocean between Bermuda, Florida and Puerto Rico has become infamous for the unexplained loss of aircraft and passengers. Conspiracy theories abound about the planes and people who have gone missing in the Bermuda Triangle. So turn your on location on ‘Find My Friends’ if you visit!
Cat Island – Japan
The human population of Tashirojima Island tallys at under a hundred people, whereas the cat population outnumbers the human population by a long shot! The cats are a symbol of good luck to their human carers who worship their cats regularly. Visitors to the island can stay in cat shaped cabins whilst visiting this furry feline colony.
Galapagos Islands – Ecuador
Visit the Galapagos Islands and get close up to some of the strangest creatures in the world. You will uncover the intricate details of evolution taking different paths by discovering breeds which are found no where else in the world. The volcanic archipelago that these creatures inhabit make for one of the most amazing natural tourism experiences in the world.
Area 51 – USA
Area 51 is a highly classified US Airforce military base in south Nevada. Conspiracy theories abound that the base is a testing facility and above all houses extraterrestrial life within its walls. The US government declares that Area 51 is a test place for aircraft and spy planes, however, conspiracies explain why the location is extremely guarded, so make up your own mind!!
