There are coves covered in sea glass at this beach in California. There are rumors that describe sea glass as "mermaid tears." In reality, this sea glass is formed by the debris from the Great Quake of 1906 that dumped into the ocean and ended up washed up on the beach. Over time, the glass was weathered down by the waves and became smooth and round pebbles.

Easter Island has almost 900 giant stone figures that date back to many centuries ago. The island itself is only about twice the size of Manhattan and was once inhabited by the complex civilization that built these huge statues. Where the early inhabitants disappeared to is a mystery.
Bora Bora is one of the most brilliant islands in the world. It is very well known for its extravagant beauty. The island was formed about seven million years ago by volcanic activity. It used to be its own kingdom until it was annexed by the French in 1888.
The Mendenhall glacier has been melting and has receded in size by two miles since 1958. The Mendenhall Ice Caves were formed from water flowing through a glacier and creating a passageway through the ice.
The Luray caverns were formed millions of years ago by the movement of groundwater and seeping acid rain through limestone. This incredible arrangement of stalactites, stalagmites, columns, and cascades was discovered in 1878 and have since become a popular tourist attraction.
Hillier lake is a small lake in Australia right next to the Pacific Ocean. It is famous for its pink color. There are two theories as to why this happens. It could be because of the Dunaliella salina microalgae in the lake, which produce carotenoids (a pigment found in carrots), or the reaction of salt and sodium bicarbonate because of the halophilic bacteria in the salt crusts.
These beautiful caves are home to many bioluminescent glow worms. Glow worms light up because of a chemical reaction between luciferin, the enzyme luciferase, adenosine triphosphate, and oxygen. This glow draws in small insects, which are their food source. The fascinating color of the caves makes this a popular attraction.
The world's largest reef system has over two million visitors each year. It dates back to about twenty million years ago. There are multiple factors making the Great Barrier Reef famous other than the stunning coral itself. The reef is bigger than the United Kingdom, Holland, and Switzerland combined, and there are more than 1,500 fish species here.
This spring is famous for its vivid colors and colossal size. It is the third largest spring in the world, being larger than a football field and deeper than a ten story building. The wide range of colors in the hot water is due to the different species of thermophile.
The tallest mountain in the world is over 60 million years old and was formed by the Indian tectonic plate colliding with the Asian plate. Its massive size has attracted thousands of adventurers to attempt to climb it. It is nearly 30,000 feet high and is equivalent to about twenty empire state buildings.
Niagra falls is an enormous waterfall and is an extremely popular tourist attraction. It is composed of three waterfalls - American Falls, Horseshoe Falls, and Bridal Veil Falls.
Antelope Canyon in Arizona is a series of amazing rock formations. The unique shape of this canyon was created by water eroding the sandstone. It got its name from the stories that the local people told that said antelopes used to graze along the canyon during winter.
Salar de Uyuni is the biggest salt flat in the world. About 11 billion tons of salt is within it. Sometimes it is covered with water and becomes the biggest natural mirror in the world.
This is a natural gas field in Turkmenistan that collapsed into an underground cavern. It is 230 feet across and 65 feet deep.
Giant's Causeway was formed over 50 million years ago by lava cooling very rapidly. The basalt broke into 40,000 interlocking hexagon shaped columns.
The Tianzi Mountains were named after Xiang Dakun, who is also called Tianzi. Xiang Dakun means "Son of Heaven." They were formed by the rising of crust 400 million years ago. It was all underwater about three billion years ago. The highest peak is 4,140 feet above sea level.
Pamukkale is a unique travertine rock formation. The terraced land is over 100 meters in height. It can actually be seen from towns twenty kilometers away. Pamukkale means "cotton castle" in Turkish.
Fingal's Cave is a fascinating sea cave located on the Isle of Straffa in Scotland. It is 72 feet tall and 270 feet deep. The walls of basalt are in the shape of hexagonal columns.
This is the most iconic cave along the Algarve Coast at the bottom of Portugal. There is more sunshine here than almost anywhere in the world with 3,300 hours of sunshine a year. It was placed fourth on the list of "50 Most Beautiful Places in the World" by Condé Nast Traveler Magazine. The cave was formed by limestone building up about 20 million years ago.
