5 AMAZING Tourist Destinations You Probably Didn’t Know Exist

5 AMAZING Tourist Destinations You Probably Didn’t Know Exist


Number 5 – The Pink Lake, Senegal Although this incredible natural phenomenon
isn’t exactly strawberry milkshake, it is, however, clearly pink and its name, Lake Rebta
translates as “Pink Lake”. You are probably wondering, “Why is the lake pink in colour?”
Well, to answer your question, the pink colouring of the water is caused by the algae, Dunaliella
salina, which produces a red pigment when exposed to sunlight which provides energy
to create ATP. There are many other known examples out there similar to this, such as
Lake Hillier in Australia. Lake Rebta is also known for its high salt concentrations which
can reach up to 40% in some areas meaning you are able to float easily. Fish in the
lake are adapted to the high salt content, however, this comes at a cost as they are
approximately four times smaller than the average fish as a result of salt water fish
dwarfism. Number 4 – Hidden Beach, Mexico Known as Mexico’s “Hidden Beach” or
“The Beach of Love”, this amazing popular tourist destination can be located a few miles
off the coast of Mexico in the Marieta Islands, an uninhabited archipelago that existed as
a result of volcanic eruption. The Hidden Beach itself was created due to the accidental
explosion of a bomb that landed during military testing. However, what was left was a beautiful
caved beach flourishing with biodiversity and enjoyed by many tourists. The beach is
invisible from the outside, hence why it is aptly called the “hidden beach”, and is
only accessible by swimming or kayaking through a long water tunnel only when the tide is
low. Number 3 – ‘Underwater Waterfall’, Mauritius Mauritius is home to white sandy beaches,
clear, warm sea waters and lagoons and is a highly attractive destination for those
who wish to escape to Eden. One of the awe-inspiring key attractions in Mauritius is the unique
underwater waterfall within the ocean. Although it isn’t actually an underwater waterfall,
sorry to break the news to you, this underwater slope is actually an optical illusion caused
by the sediment of sand and silt deposits. The sand and silt sink farther into the sea
from one coastal shelf to a much deeper coastal shelf of the southern-most part of Mauritius
giving the impression of an underwater waterfall. Aerial shots provide the most visually stimulating
appeal and a perception of an underwater vortex. Pretty impressive, right? Number 2 – The Rainbow Mountains, China Located in China’s Zhangye Danxia Landform
Geological Park, the Rainbow Mountains is a thing of natural wonder. The picturesque
and breath-taking landform is as a result of millions of years of red sandstone and
mineral deposits, 24 million years in fact! The erosion of the reddish sandstone forming
unusual rock formations and isolated peaks in conjunction with wind and rain has created
a spectacular painting-like landform. A number of boardwalks and roads have been built for
the growing number of tourists who learn these amazing sandstone formations. Number 1 – Huacachina, Peru Nestled in the middle of one of the most barren
places on Earth is the village of Huacachina. The village is built around a small oasis
surrounded by sand dunes with lush green palm trees and foliage as well as a lagoon that
is said to have healing properties. Legend has it that the lagoon was created when a
young native princess was bathing and when apprehended by a hunter she fled and the pool
of water became the lagoon. Huacachina is home to only 100 residents and has rustic
hotels, shops and even a library! Despite its small population size, tens of thousands
of tourists come here to enjoy various activities ranging from sand boarding to dune buggy rides. Please don’t forget to like and share and
