To the natural labyrinth of Islands, caves and grottoes could be reached by land, but it’s cut off from the main part of the Socorro island jungle. But the sunset from the ocean of simple and very picturesque: on the boat, passing along the wild beaches and slowly enter into the Bay of bright blue water surrounded by the Islands, the hills covered with lush greenery. These hills are increasing, and because they resemble each other like two drops of water, without an experienced captain can be instantly lost. A small fee goes to the preservation of the natural ecosystem of these places, and for him visitors get a tour of the maze, during which you can swim in caves to climb through the stalactites onto a small balcony and jump into the water with a natural five meter high tower. For the second part you change in a small boat for two people, since they have to carry in the hands of a few metres to get to an isolated lagoon teeming with jellyfish. They don’t sting, so if you want them you can swim.

It is unlikely that you will want to spend a vacation, or even a few nights on an island swarming with giant lizards are aggressive and potentially dangerous to human predators. But look at the Komodo dragons can be very interesting, because the representatives of this ancient form is similar to real dinosaurs. Usually in Komodo buses bring tourists early in the morning, the boat stops near the shore, to see basking in the sun monsters can be had directly from the Board. And the most daring can land on the beach and walk among the giant lizards, of course, under the supervision of the guide for greater thrills feed them pieces of raw chicken. These tours depart daily from the island of Flores, which is quite developed tourism, especially this place is popular among divers, as a variety of living reef inhabited by hundreds of species of fish, including quite rare.

From the shore of lake General Carrera, which is divided between Chile and Argentina, is quite usual: the water surface with a few small rocky Islands. But it is necessary to take a boat and to swim closer to them, my eyes will start to swing open wider. About 6,000 years ago the water level in ancient lake was much higher and she quietly undermined the base of these cliffs. After the water is partially gone, it turned out that gray inconspicuous islets stand on the incredible beauty of the arches of the cave system. Due to the mountain rivers flowing into the lake, the water is saturated with minerals and has a bright milky blue color, and the arches of the cave, in turn, reflect the blue and are illuminated by the sunlight. Add to this the sweet aroma of pine that permeated the air, and you will understand why I cannot go to Chile to avoid it.

In Greek the word translated as Navagio “shipwreck,” and so the beach is called since the early 1980s, when the smugglers, running from the coastal police, flooded his ship “Panagiotis” with a cargo of wine and cigarettes in the shallows near the Bay, while they themselves fled in small boats. After a few years, a violent storm tossed wreck, on the shore, and now this pile of rusty metal was the only occupant of the beach. The fact that a sandbar is surrounded by high inaccessible cliffs, that is, it is basically impossible to get except by sea. In the smuggler’s Cove, as is also sometimes referred to as shipwreck beach daily attracts a lot of tourists, tour agencies have an established schedule. To look at her in all its glory without the crowds, you should try to negotiate with the owners and go there, for example, early in the morning.

Virgin Islands in the Caribbean sea partially relate to America, one of them, St. John, the smallest and the most beautiful. In 1952, Laurence Rockefeller, grandson of the Rockefeller landed on this island and was so overwhelmed with it that he bought three quarters of the territory and made national Park, which prohibited commercial construction. That is why St. John has no airport, you can reach it only by boat or ferry from neighboring Islands. The natural beauty there remains intact, and for tourists Hiking trails can be found around the island and open to the public archaeological site in Sinnamon Park.
