    the use of "nature"

    Dear all,

    Do you think it's okay to say "beautiful nature" like below to mean "beautiful natural scenery" or "natural beauty"?

    "Switzerland is famous for its beautiful nature."

    Thanks

    "Beautiful nature" could mean a few things. It's not really a good phrase. For example, a person can be noted for their beautiful nature (meaning their personality or character).

    "Switzerland is famous for its natural beauty."
    "Switzerland is famous for the beauty of its natural scenery."
