Seitan Limania Beach, Crete

Lovers of the sea will be amazed by this photo! It shows one of the fascinating parts of Greece that hides an absolutely heavenly beach called Seitan Limania.

The beach is situated in the northeast side of the Akrotiri peninsula, about 20 kilometers (15.5 miles) from the city of Chania.

Although this place really looks quite celestial, its name tells a different story. The word “Seitan” comes from the Turkish language and it means Satan, the devil, and the word “Limania” is Greek for ports.

Put them all together and you have the welcoming title of the β€˜Port of Satan.’

Matterhorn, Zermatt, Switzerland

Matterhorn, known as the jewel of the Swiss Alps, is one of Switzerland’s best-known landmarks.

With its 4478-meter-high peak (14,690 feet tall), Matterhorn is considered to be one of the most challenging places in the world for many climbers, if not one of the deadliest.

The Matterhorn was first successfully summited in1865 by Edward Whymper. This magnificent mountain is located at the border of the western Swiss canton of Valais, between Zermatt town and the Italian resort of Breuil-Cervinia.

Its beauty is absolutely enchanting but at the same terrifying, which makes it a real magnet for everyone who loves extreme and adrenaline-pumping activities.
