Madeira is a Portuguese island that's also known as the "Hawaii of Europe," "Pearl of the Atlantic," "Garden Spring," and "Islands of Eternal Spring." These nicknames are enough to evoke images of perpetual sun, sand, and the beach for that perfect getaway by the seaside.
You can surf the Atlantic, go dolphin and whale watching, be mesmerized by the imposing ocean cliffs of Cabo Girao, and enjoy other water activities like sailing, snorkeling, fishing, and scuba diving.
If you're up for some trekking, you can go on a hike from Pico do Ariero to Pico Ruiva, two of the highest peaks in the country. You'll be treated to breathtaking views of the islands!
Or you can go underground to see the lava tubes in Sao Vicente Caves for a unique experience.
Wadi Rum, Jordan
@destinationinspiration If you’ve ever wanted to visit Mars 🚀 check out Wadi Rum, Jordan 🇯🇴 It’s out-of-this-world landscape is the reason movies like the Martian and DUNE were filmed here #travelinspo #traveltiktok #bucketlisttravel #traveltips #uniquetravel #airbnbfinds #wadirum #fyp cc: @ghetiadiana IG @Leesh @Kimmie Conner @How Far From Home ♬ Madan (King) - Bakermat
Welcome to Mars! No, it's Wadi Rum! The vast stretch of the desert with its red sand dunes, huge cliffs, narrow gorges, mysterious caverns, and nature-carved arches makes it almost otherworldly.
This is the perfect place for those looking for a different kind of adventure with a lot of information about human history on the side.
This is because Wadi Rum is a UNESCO Protected Area. Traces of human occupation way back 12,000 years ago have been discovered here. That's a glimpse way into the past, right?
There are lots of archeological remains, petroglyphs, rock carvings, and inscriptions that'll reconnect you to the past when you visit this place.
@destinationinspiration Have you heard of Lapland, Finland yet? 🇫🇮 This country offers incredible views, northern lights, snowy fairytale villages, and even reindeer sleigh rides! #travelinspo #traveltiktok #bucketlisttravel #traveltips #uniquetravel #lapland #airbnbfinds #fyp #northernlights cc: @pebuyck IG @Hand Luggage Only @Petekarttunen @momentsofgregory ♬ Madan (King) - Bakermat
Speaking of otherworldly, how about a trip to Lapland, Finland? It is one of the best places to witness the majestically dancing northern lights. It is also covered in snow for a good portion of the year so you can go sledding, downhill skiing, or cross-country skiing.
But if you want to slow down, you can relax in one of their hot saunas while feasting on reindeer meat, a hearty bowl of soup, and a glass of mulled wine.
When you visit in the summer, you will experience the famous midnight sun or "nightless nights" when the sun is up 24/7 for weeks.
This means you have all the time to do all the things you want to do around Lapland, including fishing, hiking, and just basking in its clean fresh air, even in the middle of the night!
@destinationinspiration Who are you bringing with you?? This is an island of the Philippines and just so happens to look like it’s from the set of Avatar 2! If you go, please take care of this beautiful land!! #traveltiktok #travelinspo #bucketlisttravel #uniquetravel #airbnbfinds #traveltips #philippinestiktok #fyp cc: @pikeitup07 @Brendan Butler @Warren Camitan @Giada | London & Travel @Tae Westcott ♬ Madan (King) - Bakermat
Palawan is one of the provinces in the Philippines in Southeast Asia. It has consistently received international recognition for being one of the most beautiful islands in the world and you know what that means... there are lots of awesome beaches in this place!
Imagine swimming in clear blue-green waters and hidden lagoons all by yourself. Or just lying on the white sand reading your favorite book.
You're also surrounded by lush forests everywhere you go. Time just seems to stop here. It's a piece of heaven on earth, indeed.
You can also visit the Puerto Princesa Subterranean River National Park and be amazed at the different rock formations inside the cave's many chambers. Or you can go diving in Coron if you want to see sunken Japanese ships for an eerie but equally stunning experience.
@destinationinspiration If you’re looking for a paradise to escape to, consider Seychelles for your next trip!! 🏝️🇸🇨 #traveltiktok #travelinspo #bucketlisttravel #uniquetravel #traveltips #vacationmode #airbnbfinds #seychelles Videography: @Fokke Baarssen @Roel & Eline | travelcouple @Terplanet @Jonschutte IG @Sez ♬ Madan (King) - Bakermat
If you love beaches, then you shouldn't miss a trip to the beautiful islands of Seychelles in Africa. Just choose the island that best suits your fancy (and budget) for your vacation destination!
They've got sunshine all year long, so you can have a beach escape to the tropics when it's freezing cold in your part of the world. It's the perfect opportunity to get a flawless tan!
Frolic on their clear beaches and enjoy all kinds of water activities - diving, surfing, and sailing. You should also go snorkeling to see colorful fishes and coral reefs under the sea.
It can't be said enough! Seychelles has the most beautiful beaches in the world. Some even sport pink sands, how about that?!
Seychelles is also a nature sanctuary that allows you to experience diverse flora and fauna. You can see carnivorous plants, giant tortoises, and dimorphic egrets.
You can go bird-watching for a chance to see the rare black parrots and Malagasy Kestrel flying freely over the island's clear skies.
@destinationinspiration Anyone else’s hands sweaty? Maybe you’re knees are weak? Arms heavy? The Faroe Islands look absolutely beautiful but if you have a fear of heights, this may not be for you! I feel like this is a well known place, but only about 100,000 people visit it per year. Locals seem to love the tourism as it offers new opportunities for the communities there. If you do visit, PLEASE BE SAFE, don’t do anything risky, and please take care of the land and trails you go on! #traveltiktok #traveltips #travelinspo #bucketlisttravel #uniquetravel #faroeislands Videography: @nathanpyr_ @theworldpursuit @p_shep1 @asasteinars @dominik_vv ♬ My Tears Are Becoming A Sea - M83
A group of remote islands in the North Atlantic Ocean, the Faroe Islands offer tourists some of the purest forms of nature. You'll feel you're entirely in another world or back when our planet was young and fresh.
One word is simply not enough to describe this place, but we can agree for sure that this is truly one of Europe's best-kept secrets. The beauty of its landscapes is simply breathtaking, especially when viewed from the edge of a towering cliff.
Its landscape is covered with grassy turf and surrounded by the vast ocean's temperamental waves. Constant exposure to the wind and sea has helped shape the islands' impressive geography.
The Faroes are an adventurer's paradise. There are cliffs, lagoons, waterfalls, and lakes. You can go hiking, biking, diving, fishing, surfing, sailing, and horseback riding to experience the best that this place has to offer.
@destinationinspiration Tropea is an underrated small Italian town on the east coast of Calabria. Known for its stunning beaches and cliff top architecture, you should definitely add this spot to your next Italian trip itinerary! #travelinspo #traveltiktok #bucketlisttravel #uniquetravel #traveleurope #calabria #traveltips Videography: @giorgiotravels @your_passage @jetlagliv @marcoandflo @Travellingthroughtheworld IG @your_passport @xmarina.elizax ♬ Everyday (feat.

Tropea is also called the "Coast of the Gods." It is a popular summer destination for locals but is still relatively unknown among tourists.
It is located at the southernmost tip of Italy in the Calabria municipality and about an hour's drive from the nearest airport. Houses cling to a huge cliff at its center that offers a spectacular panoramic view of the turquoise waters.
If you love long stretches of white sand, lovely beaches, and some thrilling adventures, you shouldn't miss this place. Spend lazy mornings and afternoons swimming and sunbathing, then watch the beautiful colors of the sunset.
At night, you can sample the local cuisine infused with their famous sweet red onions and enjoy a drink or two.
Thank you, Destination Inspiration for these travel ideas! Go ahead and book a trip to one, two, or all of these places while you don't have to share them with the rest of the world.
