Who hasn’t wished for a teleporter? Teleportation has been the holy grail of transport for decades, ever since Scotty first beamed up Captain Kirk and his crew in the opening episode of Star Trek back in 1966. If you’re sitting in a tiny cubicle, or stuck anywhere between four walls, you probably catch yourself dreaming of being on a beautiful beach, swimming underneath a tropical waterfall, or just about anywhere other than where you are right now – at least occasionally. If you haven’t, these truly out of this world places are sure to make you wonder if someone, somewhere, someday, will ever really invent a teleporter that can take you there in an instant – like Erawan Falls in Thailand, pictured above.

At Los Roques, there are no high rises or cruise ships docking here – only practically limitless strikingly white sands surrounded by clear waters that are the home to 280 species of fish and nearly 100 different bird species.
