The world is full of beautiful places. Among these beautiful places some are really unbelievably beautiful. They are the most gorgeous places in the world and offer breathtaking natural beauty. Below are 10 of the unbelievably beautiful places in the world. These places can surpass even our wildest imagination with what they offer. 

1. Lord Howe Island - Australia

Lord Howe Island is an irregularly crescent-shaped volcanic remnant in the Tasman Sea between Australia and New Zealand. It is located 600 kilometers east of mainland Port Macquarie, and about 900 kilometers from Norfolk Island. Lord Howe Island looks like a literal paradise - from flawless beaches, a blue lagoon, a coral reef, volcanic peaks, rainforests, and wildlife that’s native only to the island. It is a remarkable example of isolated oceanic islands, born of volcanic activity more than 2,000 meter under the sea. It is an area of spectacular and scenic landscapes encapsulated within a small land area. Lord Howe Island is not only remote geographically, but no more than 400 people are allowed to visit it at any given time.

2. Oludeniz - Turkey

Oludeniz is a small island bay in the Mugla Province on the Turquoise Coast of southwestern Turkey. It is a stunning island bay, with a laid-back atmosphere, at the conjunction point of the Aegean and Mediterranean seas. Oludeniz is one of the most photographed beaches on the Mediterranean. The beach is an official Blue Flag beach. The Blue Lagoon of Oludeniz has calm, crystal clear waters which makes it ideal for a variety of water sports and a very safe place for children to swim. Part of the lagoon is now a protected area. Famous for its Blue Lagoon, a holiday to Olu Deniz shows off the best of Turkey's stunning coastline and nature.

3. Glencoe - Scotland

Glencoe is a glen in the Highlands of Scotland. It is considered not only among the most spectacular and beautiful places in Scotland but Europe as a whole. Glencoe is Scotland's most famous and most scenic glen. Glencoe is famous for its landscape - it is home to some of the most spectacular mountains in the UK. It is about 16 kilometer long with the valley floor less than 700 meter wide. There are beautiful towering mountains rising sharply from the valley floor to heights of around 900 meter. The glen got its namesake from its foggy, grim grandeur.

4. Pamukkale - Turkey

Pamukkale is a natural site in Denizli Province in southwestern Turkey. The city is remarkable because of the fact that it contains an array of hot springs and travertines, terraces of carbonate minerals left by the flowing water. These provide a unique appearance of the area and make Pamukkale one of the most unique places in the world. Once, the ancient Greco-Roman city of Hierapolis was built atop the stunning hot springs and otherworldly travertines, creating a unique mix of natural and architectural history.

5. Namaqualand - South Africa

Located across the borders of Namibia and South Africa, extending along the west coast over 600 miles, Namaqualand is an arid region. The region encompasses about a total area of 440,000 square kilometers - a few thousand miles larger than the state of California. Namaqualand is home to the spectacular spring wild flower phenomenon. In spring, millions upon millions of beautiful flowers emerge in a  phenomenal explosion of color which transforms the landscape into a wonderland of beauty. However, throughout the majority of the year Namaqualand looks like most of the region - arid and dry.

6. Plitvice Lakes - Croatia

The Plitvice Lakes National Park is the most popular tourist attraction in Croatia. It is also considered to be one of the most beautiful natural sights in Europe. Located in the mountainous area of Like, roughly halfway between capital city Zagreb and Zadar on the coast, Plitvice is the oldest national park in Southeast Europe. Interestingly it doesn’t look like anything out of Europe, much less Croatia. The Plitvice Lakes National Park contains a series of beautiful lakes, caves and waterfalls. The beauty of the National Park lies in its sixteen lakes, inter-connected by a series of waterfalls, and set in deep woodland populated by deer, bears, wolves, boars and rare bird species.

7. Banaue Rice Terraces - Philippines

The Banaue Rice Terraces in the mountainous area of Ifugao province in the Philippines are amazing ancient cultural landscape. These ancient sprawling man-made structures are said to date back more than 2000 years. This seemingly endless series of terraced fields that climb thousands of feet were carved into the mountains by ancestors of the indigenous people. The terraces are so old now that they look wholly natural; indigenous Filipino peoples traveled into the Ifugao mountains two millennia ago, seeking a permanent solution to providing enough food for their people.

8. Sognefjord - Norway

Though Norway contains the largest number of fjords in the world, Sognefjord is the largest fjord in the country and probably most beautiful as well. It is also the second-largest in the world. It lies in the heart of the Norwegian fjord county called Fjord Norway where it carves its way from the coast to the mighty mountains of the Jotunheimen National Park and the blue ice of the Jostedalsbreen National Park. Sognefjord extends more than 200 km inland to the innermost small village of Skjolden.

9. Wulingyuan - China

Located in Hunan Province, China, Wulingyuan is known for its quartzite sandstone pillars and peaks of karst formation. There are approximately 3100 naturally created, towering sandstone pillars. Some of these sandstone pillars are amazingly high and measure over 800 meters tall. It is a spectacular area stretching over more than 26,000 ha including - Zhangjiajie, the Tianzi Mountains, and Suoxi Valley. Wulingyuan is one of China's most prominent areas of natural beauty.

10. Gullfoss - Iceland

Iceland is known for many of its beautiful waterfalls. However, none of these waterfalls is perhaps as beautiful as Gullfoss. Located in the canyon of Hvita river in southwest Iceland, Gullfoss is one of the most beautiful falls in the world. What makes the falls particularly stunning is that they traverse over three massive steps, plunging onto two stages, and then down a 32 meter deep crevice. This makes Gullfoss one of the most popular tourist attractions in the country.
