Playa de las Catedrales, Spain – Translated as “the beach of Cathedrals” the Playa de las Catedrales makes for an epic beach escape.

Namib-Naukluft National Park, Namibia – This sprawling national park is mostly composed of the Namib Desert, considered the oldest desert in the world, and the Naukluft mountain range.

It is known to be a popular breeding ground for vibrant and rare flamingos.
Grand Canyon, Arizona, USA – Listed as one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World, the Grand Canyon is easily one of the most beautiful places in North America.
