Top 10 Hidden Gems Around the World

1) Secret Lagoon, El Nido, Philippines

El Nido is known for its beautiful waters and breathtaking lagoons. However, tucked in a jagged corner of Miniloc Island, the Secret Lagoon Beach is our favourite hidden gem in the area. The only way to get into the lagoon is by swimming through a small hole in one of the cliffs. Venturing into the quiet, crystal clear lagoon nestled within looming karst cliffs make it an incredibly surreal experience.

2) Salar De Uyuni, Bolivia

What is hidden could very well just be hiding in plain sight. The Salar De Uyuni in Bolivia is the world’s largest salt flats and is also dubbed the world’s largest mirror. The sea of bright-white salt is a result of a prehistoric lake that went dry and on perfect conditions it perfectly reflects the sky; standing in the middle of it looks like you’re standing right in the centre of the infinite.

3) Matera, Italy

The town of Matera in Italy is one with a very interesting past reflected through its unique atmosphere. Residents built their homes into the cliffs and up until the 1950s, the area was poverty-ridden. However, in the 1980’s, gargantuan efforts through local laws and preservation were made to revitalize the town, moving its residents to more modern housing in the city. As a result, the cave houses were cleaned up and preserved and now offers tourists a glimpse into the town’s unique past. You can even stay in one of the cave-houses for a night!

4) Baby Blue Eyes in Hitachi Seaside Park, Japan

Every April a new sea emerges in Hitachi Seaside Park in Japan. The park features oceans of flower gardens including millions of daffodils and tulips, and pictured above, 4.5 million baby blue eyes. The mesmerizing blossoms mimic the sky and make for perfectly drool-worthy photos!

5) Socotra Island, Yemen

More than a hidden gem, Socotra Island in Yemen looks more like a lost world”, and stepping into it almost feels as if you’ve stepped into a whole other planet. The island is known for its astounding array of wildlife, as well as hundreds of species of flora and fauna with around a third that can’t be found anywhere else on the planet. Pictured above is the Dragon’s Blood Tree which can only be found in the area. Talk about a peculiar name for an equally peculiar-looking tree! 

6) The Blue Forest, Halle, Belgium

Stepping into the Hallerbos (aka the Blue Forest) in Belgium feels like walking straight into a fairy-tale. From late April to May, the forest floor is covered with millions of bluebells. Paired with lean beech trees everywhere you look, winding paths, white rabbits and deer, wandering across the floral carpet feels like stepping into a dream. 

7) Tianzi Mountain Nature Reserve in Wulingyuan, China

The Tianzi Mountains in Wulingyuan, China is by and large not hidden at all. The Mountain Nature Reserve makes everyone in its presence tiny compared to its looming magnificence. Beautiful in its own right, the mountains periodically get shrouded in seas of clouds giving rise to spectacular sunrises and breathtakingly beautiful winter snowscapes, thus earning its place in this list as a hidden gem among the clouds.

8) Melissani Cave, Greece

 The Melissani Cave is located on the island of Kefalonia, Greece. Coupled with its own share of history and myths, the Underground Melissani lake was once a place of worship dedicated to Pan and Nymph Melissani. A big part of the cave’s roof has fallen in, proving visitors on boats a spectacular view of the natural work of sculpture and the crystal blue-green colour of the waters. 

9) Plitvice Lakes, Croatia

 The Plitvice Lakes is situated in forest reserve and national park in Croatia. Crystalline lakes cascading into each other via a series of waterfalls, lush greenery speckling magnificent karst cliffs, and clouds of butterflies drifting above wooden footbridges and pathways that snake around the edges of the bubbling waters all perfectly encapsulated within a magnificent feeling that can’t be replicated anywhere else. 

10) Faroe Islands, Denmark

The Faroe Islands in Denmark is a testament to Mother Nature’s artistic prowess. Only recently made more accessible to travellers, the Faroe Islands is an archipelago of 18 mountainous islands with Viking roots and dramatic landscapes.
