Mirador Escénico over the Gulf of California in Mexico made the top spot.

At around 440 m (1,443 ft) high and 14 km (8.7 miles) long, Látrabjarg, which comes in at number five on the list, is Europe’s largest bird cliff.

The cliff is an increasingly popular destination among travelers in Iceland but is also home to a summerhouse community. Landowners have complained about heavy traffic in the area.

Meanwhile, Vík in South Iceland was named among the ‘World’s Quirkiest Beaches’ by the Huffington Post.
