If you are a romantic soul who enjoys watching spectacular sunsets, walking through some charming villages or just wants to spend the holiday lying under a warm sun all day long, Santorini is definitely the place you want to consider visiting.  

The complex of Santorini islands lies in the southern Aegean Sea. It was created as a result of volcanic activity, some of which still belch out a rumble or two. But that’s not really something you should be too worried about.

Eruptions occur once every 20,000 years and the last time one did was approximately 3,600 years ago, so you can enjoy yourself in peace and harmony of the deep blue sea and bright cloudless sky.

And for all the lovers out there who are looking for an unforgettable spot to get married, Santorini might be the place for you. Who wouldn’t want to exchange vows perched above a simmering, yet very docile, volcano?

Bora Bora, French Polynesia

You could go through a long list of phrases to describe the island of Bora Bora, but probably the best one would be a glimpse into what heaven must look like, at least as it appears here on Earth.

This phenomenal destination is situated northwest of Tahiti in French Polynesia, approximately halfway between Australia and the U.S.A. It’s a tropical paradise surrounded by coral reef beds off its shores and a stunning lagoon inland.

Bora Bora covers an area of only 29.3 square kilometers (just over 11 square miles) but offers plenty of attractions for travelers, from amazing landscapes and the world’s most beautiful beaches to many historical sites.

Even though it’s one of the smallest countries in the world, Seychelles is the favorite vacation destination for many. It takes only a glimpse of this photo to realize why!

The interesting thing is that Seychelles consists of over a hundred islands located in the Indian Ocean.

The group of inner granitic isles is called Granitic Seychelles, while the outer coralline islands make so-called Coralline Seychelles, and it’s hard to say which ones look more stunning.

Besides the incredible beaches, like the one we have here, and absolutely breathtaking views, Seychelles is also famous for being home to some exotic wildlife, including rare birds, giant Aldabra tortoises and probably the largest seed in the world, called Lodoicea or sea coconut.

High up on the list of Earth’s stunning tropical locations would have to be Nā Pali Coast State Park, located on the Hawaiian island of Kauai.

This paradise is filled with mountains, rough water caves and lush green valleys. Nā Pali’s coastline stretches for 27 kilometers (17 miles) along Kauai’s North Shore, with razor-sharp cliffs above the Pacific Ocean.

Anyone who is ready, willing and able enough to embark on the journey down this captivating coast will leave astonished with its beauty and probably the cell phone pictures to back it up.

It’s also a popular spot for whale watching or snorkelling in the ocean’s blue waters. The stark contrast between the barren cliffsides and the never-ending waves makes Nā Pali Coast a perfect travel destination for adventurers on land or the water.

Turks and Caicos

The Turks and Caicos is a tropical archipelago in the Atlantic Ocean southeast of the Bahamas. It consists of eight large islands (of which five are inhabited) and dozens of smaller islands and cays, of which only three have people living on them.

This group of islands is famous for its white sand beaches and incredibly blue waters, but there is one more thing that makes this place unique: its rich history.

For a long time, it was believed that Christopher Columbus was the first explorer to set eyes on the islands, although that was only a theory.

After the discovery of a 680 kilogram (1,500 pound) anchor and pottery remnants at a site in this archipelago, it appears as though one of Columbos’ ships did find its way to this corner of the ocean.

[Твои подруги хотят богатого и успешного, а сами ничего предложить не могут] ⠀ Цитирую одного из моих подписчиков из прошлого поста. В директ тоже пришло несколько «криков души»…😱 ⠀ Ребята, ну конечно все девочки хотят богатого и успешного, а парни сексуальную и обворожительную. Так природой заведено. Но хотеть это одно, а добиваться совсем другое. Меня раздражают парни, которым легче обвинить девушек в меркантильности, чем найти дело своей души и зарабатывать больше, чем средний житель нашей страны 🤦🏼‍♀️ ⠀ К красивым и сексуальным у меня тоже есть претензии, так как одной внешности мало и она не вечна…в отличие от мозгов) 👩🏼+🧠=💍👍 ⠀ Часто слышу нытье о завышенных требованиях девушек. Мужчины, у вас они тоже завышены, вы хотите и модель шикарную и рай в шалаше, а так не бывает… ⠀ Никогда не любила эту фразу «с милым рай в шалаше»…это великая ХРЕНЬ! В итоге ваша лодочка любви обязательно разобьется о скалу финансовых проблем🏔 ⠀ В связи с этим вопрос: важна ли для вас финансовая составляющая в отношениях? Недостаток денег может разрушить волшебные чувства? 💰 💔 ⠀ P.S. Я, кстати, резюмировала прошлый пост, получилась забавная подборка мест, где можно найти свою любовь, сохраняйте: ⠀ Поездки Конюшня (можно найти своего жеребца) Танцевальная школа Сайт знакомств Выезд профкома Ночной клуб Работа Универ Авито (особенно порадовал ответ «в разделе каменная стена») Кальянная Университет Церковь (внезапно) Свадьба друзей Антикафе ⠀ Ph: @photo.anna.turkey MUA: @soykan_mua Style: @ksyusha_che Guide: @turkish_way ⠀ #турция #турция2018 #фотографтурция #фотографанталия #фотографбелек #визажистанталия #макияжанталия #гидтурция #экскурсиитурция #turkey #antalya #belek #pamukkale

A young lady from ancient times, perhaps still a teenager, grows upset over the thought that she will never be married because she is physically unappealing.

In a fit of wallowing sadness, she throws herself off a ledge into a natural pool. She survives. The pool magically transforms her into a beautiful woman just as a lord comes strolling past.

Their eyes meet, he becomes smitten with her beauty, and true love is found.

Or so goes the Turkish legend surrounding the 17 hot springs of Pamukkale, Turkey. The lava-heated waters of Pamukkale are saturated with calcium, which erupts from the ground below and forms frozen falls down a cliffside.

Each one of the springs ranges in temperature from 35 °C (95 °F) up to 100 °C (212 °F), and each is said to cure or aid dozens of maladies, including: kidney stones, high blood pressure, circulation and digestive issues, food allergies, asthma, rheumatism and stupidity (okay, maybe not the last one).

Whitehaven Bay, Australia

Australia is full of different natural treasures and unbelievable travel spots, including the famous Whitehaven beach.

This piece of heaven is situated in the Whitsunday Islands National Park and is surrounded by the Great Barrier Reef.

Its beach stretches for seven long kilometers (just over four miles) and is covered in luminescent white sand. This gives a beautiful high contrast as it edges into turquoise water, perfect for anyone with a camera.

Additionally, the bay is one of the top eco-friendly and cleanest beaches in the world, and in case you need more incentive to visit TripAdvisor recently ranked it as the number one beach in the South Pacific.

Tulum, Quintana Roo, Mexico

Situated on the Caribbean coastline of Mexico’s Yucatán Peninsula, Tulum is the perfect spot for everyone who wants both to enjoy some of the most beautiful beaches in the world and to explore archaeological sites of the ancient Mayan ruins.

The name of the town comes from the Maya language and it means “wall,” but some sources say that the original name of this place was Zamá (which translates to “Place of the dawning sun.”)  

The name itself promises the breathtaking dawns and amazing mornings, but the truth is you can enjoy Tulum all day long and never get bored with whatever you chose to do there, whether it’s a guided tour of the ruins or an afternoon on a sandy beach.

It is a definite magnetic hotspot for anyone who loves sandy beaches and a mesmerizing ocean view with turquoise and blue waters.

It’s as photogenic a location as you’ll find in the Maldives, and many of the pictures you see of the Maldives in travel magazines and websites are taken on this island.  

The Anantara Dhigu as a little part of heaven is a quite touristic site, with over 110 villas that are all five star accommodations with many different activities for each and every person who visits it.

Starting off as a port of the Amalfi Republic when terracotta building began getting etched into the steep mountainside, Positano hit its stride during the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries.

Located in Campania, Italy, the coastal town of Positano is described by some as the most romantic place in Italy.

Over the past few decades, its historical ties with ancient Romans, who left their style mark with some of the architecture.

It has its share of more modern dalliances with cultural icons such as author John Steinbeck (who said of the town in a 1953 issue of Harper’s Bazaar: “Positano bites deep. It is a dream place that isn’t quite real when you are there and becomes beckoningly real after you have gone”) which have turned the town into a must-visit stop for anyone coming to Italy.

For all of the adventurers who dream about spending a perfect day in a completely uninhabited place (with the exception of the occasional four-legged creature), Big Major Cay is the place you want to be.

This unique location is one of the over three hundred islands in Exuma, a district of the Bahamas also known as the Pig Beach.

The only way one can get there is by boat, but it’s a trip worth taking. Once you reach this amazing spot in the Caribbean sea, you’ll have a unique chance to swim in some of the clearest waters on the planet accompanied by rather unusual bathers – snorting, oinking pigs.

No one really knows how the pigs ended up on this island, but local legend says that a group of pirates dropped them off after a shipwreck, but never made it back to pick them up again.

Cook Islands

Link to Instagram profile at the bottom of the article.

The Cook Islands consists of 15 small islands in the center of the Pacific, exactly between New Zealand and Hawaii.

It represents an oasis of magnificent blue-colored beaches, excellent weather and last but not the least, delicious food.

Obviously the people who call the Cook Islands home are living in the here and now that is the 21st century, but visitors can still enjoy a heaping taste of authentic Polynesian culture.

You can fill your day with activities such as mountain biking, snorkeling, swimming and diving, or even join one of the guided tours trips throughout the numerous islands’ coastlines.

Ubud, Bali, Indonesia

Link to Instagram profile at the bottom of the article.

It has sun. Sand. Culture. A bit of a alt-lifestyle vibe. It’s all things to all people, so you won’t know what it might be for you until you go there.

What might be a potential downside to Ubud is that it’s one of the most crowdest and popular travel destinations in the country.

With yoga as the main activity, hippie vibe, and refreshing landscape, it still nurtures the Indonesian culture with green rice terraces, Hindu architecture, and holistic art.

One of the things that you should not miss to visit is the Monkey Forest, which is a green sanctuary in the southwest corner of Ubud.

If you are looking for something a little different on the culinary front, vegetarian restaurants abound and there are cafes everywhere for those just looking to sit and observe the scenery.

Yanuca Island, Sigatoka, Fiji

Yanuca Island in Sigatoka on Fiji is a thriving locale for fishing, relaxing, surfing and overall island fun.

It is also a surfer’s favorite place to enjoy perfect winds and the accompanying waves that can can test the skills of anyone on a board.

Thailand is truly an exotic destination in every sense of the word. With so many tourist attractions and surreal seaside allure, it is hard to resist the appeal of its islands.

Some of the loveliest and most beautiful you’ll find are the Phi Phi islands.

This group of six islands, headlined by Phi Phi Don and Phi Phi Leh, are very popular rock climbers destinations for the thrill seeker looking for some heart-stopping action to go along with a healthy dose of Thai culture.

The land of Koh Phi Phi is very far away to reach by road, so in order to reach this tropical oasis you’ll need to take a boat or a ferry ride. The view will be worth it, though.

Lençóis Maranhenses, Brazil

When one thinks of a desert, pools of water are probably the last thing that would come to mind.

But Lençóis Maranhenses, a national park in Brazil, is actually known for it! Moreover, this place is the only desert in the world with water basins between white sand dunes.

This mesmerizing site lies on the banks of the Preguiças River and covers about 155,000 hectares (135,908 acres) of incredible landscapes made of up 50-meter-high dunes (165 feet) and multicolored lakes and ponds.

The most famous of these dunes are called Lagoa Azul and Lagoa Bonita, and both of them can be described as the pearls of the Lençóis Maranhenses desert.

One of the most extreme, but at the same time most exceptional places in South America is Bolivia’s Salar de Uyuni.

Located between Bolivia, Chile, and Argentina, this place is the world’s largest salt flat that glistens over 10,489 square kilometers (4,050 square miles) of the Altiplano.

When the nearby lakes overflow the ground, a thin water layer transforms the whole area into a mirror-like surface that reflects the sky, creating some of the most spectacular views ever witnessed on our planet.

The British Virgin Islands might be the place for you if you enjoy island hopping to different locations that each seem to have their own personality despite flying under the same flag and being within close proximity to one another.

Party under the stars at Tortola, Anegada embraces the exact opposite and embraces those looking to simply relax and those who have the cash to buy the biggest yacht they can head to Virgin Gorda.

Besides being famous for their beaches, the islands are also well known for their untouched Caribbean culture and delicious cuisine to go along with it.

Kawasan Falls, Cebu, Philippines

Italy is one of the places everyone should go to at least once in a lifetime.

Why? To simplify things, there are just so many things to see and do in this fantastic country. Italy is made up of 20 regions and 110 provinces, each beautiful and amazing in its own way.

On top of everything else that Capri has to offer, celebrity watchers will need to break out the binoculars to catch a glimpse of the stars who like to stop there and anchor their yachts in the Marina Grande while they cruise along the Mediterranean Sea.

Mílos, Kikladhes, Greece

Link to Instagram profile at the bottom of the article.

Greece is well-known for its islands and fantastic seasides with pink, red and orange sand beaches, but one particular destination that has the some of the most beautiful oceanfronts in the Aegean Sea is definitely the Island of Milos.

Although renowned for its enchanting villas and filled with almost-unbelievable pirate stories and historical moments, Milos is still off the radar for many travellers.

This little island lays hidden surrounded with blue waters bays and it is visually one the most impressive places you can visit in the Cyclades isles.

Milos is definite must-visit for anyone who loves to explore emerald blue waters, catacombs, caves and hike along challenging volcanic terrain.
