Japan’s Hoshino Resort Tomamu, on the island of Hokkaido, has one of the world’s most incredibly unique attractions: the Unkai Terrace, a specially-built scenic overlook that sits on a mountain peak high above the cloud cover, resulting an a spectacular view that gives the impression of staring into a foamy, floating sea. The terrace is only open from 4:00am to 8:30am during the months of June through late September, when the sea of clouds has an appearance rate of nearly 50%. On especially cloudy days, though, it’s not uncommon for the entire terrace to be engulfed in clouds. The guides give out a complimentary postcard to show what the sea of clouds normally looks like.

These unusual formations on Spain’s western coastline adopt various shades of green throughout the year as different plants begin to blossom. Freshwater and salt water collide to make different shades of blue. The unusual scenery can be seen in Bahia de Cadiz Natural Park in Spain.
