The 10 most epic smoke spots in the world
For the dreamers.
Any herb lover would agree that there’s something awesome about lighting up a joint in new territory. It makes you appreciate your weed—and the world around you—more. If you need some inspiration for your next trip or you just want to fantasize about that much-deserved vacation, here are the 10 most epic smoke spots in the world.
1. Malibu, California
Most weed smokers associate Los Angeles with the iconic Venice Beach boardwalk. And while it’s something every pot lover must check out in their lifetime, the most epic smoke spots in the city are just a little further North.
So once you’ve gone to the Venice dispensary, picked up some of the finest strains imaginable, and checked out the Boardwalk mayhem, cruise on up PCH for the sunset. All along the highway are epic smoke spots full of coves and rocks. You can pull over anywhere, scale down the side of them, and find a nook on the sand that feels like your own private beach. At that point, the people will have gone, the waves will be golden and the sun will be setting on the horizon of the Pacific. Does it get better than that?
2. Bryce Canyon National Park, Utah
If you’re the type who likes to hike to epic smoke spots, Bryce Canyon National Park in Utah is for you. You actually have to camp overnight along the way. Just under the Rim Trail sits the longest trail in the park at 23 miles long one-way and 200 feet of elevation.
A climb like this really does make you feel like the ruler of the world—and there’s nothing like a much-deserved joint to celebrate your accomplishment.
3. The Great Wall of China…no we’re not kidding
It’s not called The Great Wall of China for nothing. At more than 21,000 kilometers in length, The Great Wall of China definitely makes it onto the list of the 10 most epic smoke spots. There’s many different entry points and ways to get there. Some parts of the wall are full of tourists being bussed in and vendors all along the path. This obviously does not make for a discrete smoking location. Besides, who wants to experience the wall that way anyway if you could go somewhere quiet?? Do your research and consider finding a private tour guide to take you there. Also, be fully aware of the risk involved in this adventure as China is notorious for its harsh anti-drug laws. If you can make it happen, however, you’ll certainly have a story to tell. Also, the wall really does make for one of the most epic smoke spots in the world—an extraordinary feat of human accomplishment built millennia ago.
4. Tongariro National Park, New Zealand
If you enjoy watching “The Lord of the Rings” high, try being in it after a fat joint. Tongariro National Park in New Zealand has three active volcanos which all make for epic smoke spots. One of them is a volcano named Ngauruhoe, more commonly known as Mount Doom in the “Lord of the Rings” movies. You’ll feel insignificant, wonderstruck and wonderful all at once in the 782 square kilometer park.
5. Erg Chebbi, Morocco
Erg Chebbi is a part of the Saharan Desert of Morocco that hasn’t seen a measurable amount of rain in more than 20 years. This part of the Sahara is known to have some of the largest sand dunes in Morocco at 150 meters high. Morocco is also known for its hashish so you can easily pick some herb up in one of the country’s major cities before heading out to for your adventure.
6. Benagil Caves, Portugal
The Benagil Caves in Algarve, Portugal most definitely qualifies as one of the most epic smoke spots. It attracts hundreds of visitors each summer. Located near a popular beach called Praia de Benagil, this sea cave is a great place to escape for a couple hours to relax on the rocks and pass one around.
7. Cauterets, France
Snowboarding anywhere and being high is probably one of the best things ever. Add an incredible location to the mix, like the Cauterets in France, and you get some of the most epic smoke spots in the world. The ski resort sits in the narrow valley of the Gave de Cauterets with the Pyrenees mountains as its breathtaking backdrop.
As a bonus, there are numerous hot springs in the area that started being used in 1893 and are still adored today.
8. Multnomah Falls, Oregon
A cool mist and an awe-inspiring view are what you’ll get at the Multnomah Falls in Portland, Oregon. Sparking up a jay while gazing up at the 611-foot-tall waterfall is the perfect salute to mother nature and her power. And, of course, big bonuses here are that Oregon is easily accessible for American travelers and has totally legalized cannabis.
9. Saint Catherine, Jamaica
Of course, Jamaica had to be on our list of epic smoke spots. The Blue Mountains in Saint Catherine, Jamaica run an impressive 75 kilometers long and are the highest mountains in the country at 2,205 meters. The rainforest, Jamaica and weed: c’mon.
10. Phi Phi Islands, Thailand
Being out and a’boat exploring the Phi Phi Islands in Thailand is the perfect time to light up a jay. Surrounded by limestone cliffs and colorful fish, this is an epic place to doze off as the water laps gently at the side of your boat.
