1. Fingal’s Cave, Scotland

Situated on the uninhabited island of Staffa in the Inner Hebrides, Fingal’s Cave is renowned for its stunning acoustics. Thanks to the arched roof, the motion of the sea makes the waves sing in melodies, which is known as the cave’s choir.

Some insist that it must be man made because of its hexagonal rock columns, formed millions of years ago by volcanic eruptions.

If you’re planning on visiting, make sure its a calm day as large waves can make it difficult to reach the cave’s opening.
