Strange and wonderful places of Earth
Written by Valentina Romano
As you may know The Golden Scope is an online magazine that features anything that is fascinating wonderful and strange.
For this reason, today we are focusing the world’s most beautiful, fascinating and wonderful places.
This might sound a bit generic and you’re probably wondering what kind of places we are referring to, natural landscapes or cultural towns?
After a long research, we realised that there are so many places on this planet – both natural and cultural – that are not so renowned, and so people don’t know of their existence.
Since those spots are absolutely stunning, we figured it’s a shame that they are kept “secret”, so we chose a few for you to have a look, and maybe one day go visit.
Wind Cathedral, Namib Desert, Namibia
The Wind Cathedral it’s a wonderful natural construction made of sand. Year-after-year the wind has pushed and blown the sand giving it the shape of a tall ‘building’. The Wind Cathedral is located in the Namib Desert, which is a coastal desert in southern Africa.
Capilla de Marmol, General Carrera Lake, Chilean Patagonia
Capilla de Marmol is a cave made of white marble and fluvial erosion. It is situated in the General Carrera Lake, which is shared between Argentina and Chile. Capilla de Marmol can be found in the Chilean side of the lake. This spot is incredibly stunning as the light color of the marble reflects into the water making the place look like a magical world.
Copperfield Bay, Musha Cay, Bahamas
Musha Cay is a beautiful private island located in the Southern Bahamas. It is owned by illusionist David Copperfield and its most beautiful beach is the Copperfield Bay. This is a strip of fine white sand positioned right in the middle of the ocean, and completely surrounded by crystal clear waters. Even if the island is privately owned, it is possible to stay over for a night or tow and/or to dine. For more information visit www.mushacay.com
Positioned in Northern Iceland, Hvitserkur is a 15 meters high boulder located in the sea. The shape of the rock has been made by the water and wind eroding the stone. Hvitserkur is a good place to spot seals and it is reachable by car from Blönduós – a town 245 km from Reykjavík.
