The Coromandel Peninsula of New Zealand is gifted with many scenic natural attractions, but one spot that easily stands out is Cathedral Cove.
The cove earned its name because of its most distinct feature; a huge cathedral-like arched cavern that goes through a white rock headland. Another distinct physical feature of the cove is the large pumice breccia rock formation called Te Hoho. Situated just off the beach, Te Hoho has earned its unique shape, which looks like the prow of a ship, after frequent exposure from wind and water for centuries. Cathedral Cove is secluded and sandy adorned by pohutukawa trees that provide shade to visitors. It is the perfect getaway spot for those seeking for a relaxing swim and picnic.
People flock to the island of Bali for its strong and distinct culture, beautiful countryside, charming beaches and rich yoga heritage. But another attraction that is worthy of your attention and time is the Banjar Hot Springs.
Situated less than a mile from Banjar village in the northern section of Bali, Indonesia, this hot spring offers relaxation with waters generating temperatures up to 37 degrees Celsius or 98 degrees Fahrenheit. The natural spring water comes from the ground, goes through the mouths of stone-carved dragon-like figures and into the pools. Like other hot springs, the Banjar water contains sulphur and is strongly believed to possess healing capabilities.
Taiwan may be known for its strong Chinese culture, vibrant street life and culinary prowess, but it also caters to those who adore nature. One of the country’s most prized natural attractions is the Shifen Waterfalls.
Located at the Pingxi Township in Taipei County, the waterfall is surrounded by a mountainous area adorned by kettle pits in river beds. Kettle pits refer to round shallow pits created because of the erosion of soft rocks and rapid water flow. Shifen Waterfall is considered by many guidebooks and travel experts as the most beautiful in the country.
