Red Beach, Panjin, China
This is really far from the idea of your typical Caribbean beach and this unique holiday destination will certainly be one to remember. This beach is covered in Sueda which is a particular seaweed that turns bright red in autumn time to create a stunning red-sea of seaweed. Whilst you can’t dip your toes in, there is a walkway out to the sea where you can get the best view of this beautiful landscape.
Socatra Island, Yemen
Does the image look familiar to you? Socotra Island separated from Africa just a few years ago… well more than six million years ago and now looks more like a sci-fi film than an island with its oddly shaped trees. This unique holiday destination really is incredible; the plants and trees found on this island can’t be found anywhere else in the world which is truly a bucket-list visit!
The Hand in the Desert, Chile
The Chilean Sculpture, Mario Irrazabal, created this unusual sculpture left in the middle of the desert which you can find 46 miles off of the city. This weird destination was designed to represent the feeling of loneliness by being in this secluded location. Read more about this unique destination here.
