Tuesday, July 2nd, 2013

What are the five places with the clearest waters? Read more to find out!

When you ask yourself ‘What is the beach I would love to see with my own eyes at least once in my lifetime?’ there will be at least one name or a general location that will come up in your mind right away. This is valid for such places as the Maldives, the Seychelles, the Tahitian sands and maybe even Hawaii. Actually, most of these are in fact the, scientifically proven, clearest water beaches in the world.

The Seychelles, an archipelago of 115 smaller and larger islands, is found in the Indian Ocean. Famous for its pink beaches and see-through waters, this is a dream destination for many travellers. The thing that helps this clearness are the reefs that have surrounded the otherwise shallow waters, not letting much of the debris and dirt near the shores.

The second location that has some of the clearest waters in the world is found just between the Southern and the Northern hemispheres, right below Sri Lanka. This is the Maldives. The total number of islands is 1.102 and the whole resort is rated as a 4-star place. Some waters reach a depth of 24metres and it is still possible to see almost to the very bottom.

Hawaii’s Lanikai Beach. This is the third destination for all the lovers of beautiful seas and the many beings visible all around the picture-perfect waters. Unlike the first two, the Lanikai Beach is much smaller - one shore of half a mile, but it is a sight that impresses. With its glittering sands, a perfect basis for one of the whitest beaches in the world, this is a unique destination for those of us who enjoy having a seashore vacation.

Last but not least, the famous Bora Bora resorts in Tahiti. Except for its very clear waters and white beaches, this region is also a renowned romantic getaway. Measuring at just 29km (18miles), this is a perfect place for people of all kinds including divers, couples, elderly appreciators of the classic tastes and young adventurists who want to see just what is so great about this lagoon in the French Polynesia.
