Every nation in the globe has something unique to offer, from regional cuisine to avant-garde construction. When it comes to the varied places in the globe, beauty is certainly in the eye of the beholder, yet some nations have an advantage in terms of their natural riches. As a starting point for your next major vacation, we've compiled 10 of the most beautiful nations in the world. These nations' breathtaking landscapes, which include towering mountains, lush flora, flowing waterfalls, an abundance of animals, beautiful beaches, and much more, are sure to wow any visitor.
India's landscape, which includes Himalayan peaks and beaches along the Indian Ocean, is stunning. With its elephants, tigers, an extensive network of lagoons, and tea plantations, Kerala is undoubtedly one of the most picturesque states in the nation. Even outside of Kerala, there are amazing lengths of sand like Chandipur Beach in Orissa, where the tide recedes over three miles out to sea, or Marina Beach in underrated Tamil Nadu.
Australia's natural beauty is unparalleled, from the Great Barrier Reef to the Outback's untamed solitude to Victoria's wine regions. Every traveller should put Uluru's magnificence on their bucket list, whether from a helicopter or a distance while on foot during a technicolour sunset.
Mexico is ranked highly on this list for a reason—it has 67 national parks, more than 5,000 miles of shoreline, and a variety of landscapes, from deserts to snow-capped mountains. The state of Oaxaca claims wild, empty beaches and Hierve el Agua, a collection of unmanmade rock formations and mineral springs.
Brazil is full of splendour, whether you're at the base of the Iguazu cascades' horseshoe-shaped cascades, kayaking through the unparalleled Amazon, or standing atop Corcovado in Rio de Janeiro. Some of the nicest beaches in the nation may be found in the Fernando de Noronha archipelago, which is located off the northeast coast.
5. America's United States
The sights in America are so numerous and gorgeous that you might spend a lifetime seeing them all. One of the most gorgeous coasts on the earth is the vertical Na'Pali Coast in Hawaii.
Canada, ah. The second-largest country in the world has nearly too much breathtaking beauty to pick a favourite. If forced to choose, though, we'd start with the secluded Torngat Mountains National Park, which is home to polar bears, caribou, glaciers, fjords, and a stretch of mountains you'll never forget.
Indonesia, one of Southeast Asia's gems, is home to some of the world's most beautiful islands. First up is Bali, a paradisiacal island covered with the sun. Yes, it is crowded, but there are still pockets of peace to be found, such as Tabanan's central region, with its waterfalls, butterfly parks, and UNESCO-protected rice fields. The Raja Ampat Islands, which are situated off the coast of West Papua, are a scuba diver's paradise with their azure canals and biodiverse reefs.
With its lavender fields and many castles, France is the stuff of fairytales. Travellers from all over the world are drawn to the country's coastline, whether it is to the beaches of Biarritz, the white cliffs of Normandy, or any of the opulent cities along the French Riviera.
Not merely because it comprises a portion of the Amazon rainforest and the Andes mountain range, Colombia has an amazing scenery that needs to be acknowledged. One of South America's most stunning locations is Tayrona National Park, which features beaches lined with coconut palms and jungles that rise over three miles above sea level.
Spain is home to 16 national parks, including five in the Canary and Balearic Islands, in addition to its world-class beaches (such as Playa de Las Catedrales in Galicia, shown). Five endangered bird species may be found at Doana National Park, along with beautiful wetlands and dunes.
