This is more a test in descriptive writing skill than a one-up contest of exotic places.
Answers to this question:
Put the reader in the location with your words. Make them feel the euphoria of the beauty that you are describing.
This could be as simple as the solemnity of the patio on the back or your house or it could be as exotic as the early morning view from a mountain, over the glass surface of a lake, in some far away place.

My first girlfriend, Gina Statutory; she was voted, "Miss Lincoln", at Lincoln High School, because every senior took a shot at her, in the balcony.
Hmmm, so the "most beautiful place" is Lincoln High School or the balcony?
Hardly; it was a hidden and special place of dark violet eyes, like Liz Tayor, which when stared into, was like falling down a dark well.
It was a place of jasmine and ivory soap, of secret softness, almond eyes and straight limbed.
Waterfalls of hair splashed onto shoulders, and eyelashes long enough to dust the dandruff from my lapels.
(Gina's, tongue in cheek, forgive the pun, last name implies that it's a place, as well, of illegality and trespass...)
Revisting that long ago 'most beautiful place', is tainted; the surety of condos and utilities, residential housing since built and infrastructure degradation, in that place, after all these long years, saddens me.
You definitely have talent, Paul!
That was something she told all the guys.....
You should probably close out the question now and give him the points because it would be difficult to top.
Pat, I'll split the points with you, for that suggestion!
I wish I could write like that!
Yes, but we all have our talents. Sometimes I wish that I had your analytical ability. You can see things instantly that I would have to be looking for and, even then, I struggle to find. Add to it that you can express yourself in writing so that even the forty seven percenters can understand. (If they will read it.)
For that compliment, I will hazard to phrase anything that you might struggle to express!
How can I forget the Bay of Islands in New Zealand. It's beautiful, beyond compare!
Join me in re-discovering the soothing atmosphere in Paihia, a small town which serves as a jump-off point for cruises to the Bay of Islands. I love Paihia and I love talking to the local people. In a little while, have a feel of their sincerity and welcoming gestures as they relate to you how happy they are living in such a peaceful place and how lucky we are to have a chance to enjoy it.
Come with me on-board a ferry. We will pass through the Hole in the Rock, off Cape Brett. I will let you jump into the water to swim and play with the dolphins while taking your photos snorkelling alongside these amazing creatures. Will you forget such an experience?
We will get off the ferry and board a bus especially designed to cruise along the Ninety-Mile Beach. If we are lucky enough, we'll have the chance to experience the sight of the wild horses running along on our way to Cape Reinga. Will go down the beach and find some extraordinary shells while dipping our toes on the white sand.
At one point we will get off the boat one more time and explore the stunning Otehei Bay. Sit and relax on the beach while exploring this island called Urupukapuka.
Upon reaching Cape Reinga, we will take a walk to the lighthouse which is at the tip of New Zealand. While there, we will watch the view of the Pacific Ocean that collides with the Tasman Sea. It will surely take your breath away!
This will not be the end of the thrilling experience. We will be sand boarding down the dunes with our boogie boards for a fun and once-in-a-lifetime experience. Do it now so that there’ll be no regrets.
Our experience in Bay of Islands does not happen everyday. It’s the most beautiful place on earth that I have seen in my many years of travelling.
Welcome, Freddie! Nice work! I was beginning to think that no one would offer Paul some competition. Hopefully, more responses are yet to come.
The most beautiful place I've seen is the Lake Tahoe at dawn. Along the serene shores in early morning the pristine stillness is soothing to the depth of the soul. You feel every muscle, every cell slow and calm. Breathing automatically deepens and evens out. The water is crystal clear, almost eerily so. I don't know how it's possible but it is simultaneously completely transparent and totally reflective. A mesmerizing scene where earth and sky are mirrored perfectly blurring the ending of reality and the beginning of the copy. The phrase, "build me a cabin in the sky" comes to mind. Let me breathe in the eternal rhythm of the seasons of the earth and be reflected back to the sky. Let it sink into my bones and marrow and never let me be anxious again.
The most Beautiful place on earth is my inner self!
I have explored it really well and was most beautiful.
That is an interesting response, Megha.
Can you elaborate? "Put the reader in the location with your words. Make them feel the euphoria of the beauty that you are describing."

As a United States Marine I visited, and stayed, at Wake Island. The tropical paradise is off limits to civilians and was preserved as it was at the end of World War II. Rusted hulks of metal in the surf and anti-aircraft guns rusted in an eternal skyward search. The holiness of being where Marines defended the continental United States from invasion was a mix of sacredness and pristine nature reclaiming its territory.
To walk on the same beach where Americans defended the very safety of citizens from Japanese invasion, and touching the pock marks of concrete pierced by bullets was a moment of awe I will never forget. The island was a mix of history and sacredness that most Americans will never be able to experience. I felt as if I was walking in history and at the same time realizing that mother-Earth will reclaim everything, and purge the scars of humanity.
Wake Island was nature at its finest, and humanity at its worst. The moment of touching a blown out concrete shelter, while looking at an approaching thunderstorm allowed me to live past present and future, all at once.
The horrors of war in the past, the beauty of what is present when mankind is in tune with nature, and the dangers of a storm that will approach if we do not heed the history we created.
Wake Island was by far not only the most beatiful place I ever visited...it was the moment my spirituality was born.
This is wonderful, Mr. Keith - makes me wish I could see it too.
Deeply emotional as well as descriptive. Well written.
