Marble Caves

If you can imagine a soft-serve cone of swirly blueberry ice cream, that’s kind of what Chile’s Marble Caves look like. Putting other caves to shame, this mind-boggling cave system is the result of calcium carbonate formations that are both wacky in shape and downright delightful in color. The cave’s cobalt walls look like a purposefully-designed mural against the waters below, giving it a real whimsical atmosphere, and making it one of the most unique blue places in this list. Even though we’d love to take a swim here, the water’s actually pretty freezing, so it’s off limits. You can easily hop on a kayak or boat tour to see all of the glory.

These marbleized caves in Chile are famous for mesmerizing aqua-shaded swirling patterns. The unique formations create intricate designs in hues of blue, yellow, black, and cream reflected against turquoise-colored water.

Jump back into high school chemistry class with these sprawling calcium carbonate formations that have resulted in a one-of-a-kind cave system: Marble Caves. Azure rock walls mimic the waters below, resulting in an overall view that is truly out of the ordinary. You can’t swim through ‘em (the water is beyond icy) but you can explore this colorful destination via kayak or a boat tour.

A dream for photography lovers, the Marble Caves are still one of the most isolated natural treasures in the world. Hop on a kayak and glide through the caves' intricate tunnels that stand tall in hues greens, blacks, yellows, and blues.
