14 Places You Can Find An Amazing Crystal Clear Water In The World

Places You Can Find An Amazing  Crystal Clear Water In The World

In this Article, RNN would be discussing the most amazing places in the world with crystal clear waters. Wouldn’t it be nice if you could actually see what’s beneath you? Each of the beautiful places we’ll be talking about has water so clear that it is pretty much equivalent to swimming inside a Poland Spring bottle. Or a Fiji bottle, if you’re super fancy. All these to explore underwater life.

"You probably imagine yourself lounging next to clear blue water, with a cold drink in your hand and the sweet breeze gently lulling you to sleep during a vacation with friends, family or even on a solo vacation. Get your swimsuit and snorkel ready, because these spots are definitely worth diving in. Let’s get into it."

[ Jiuzhaigou Valley – "China" ]

The Jiuzhaigou valley is part of the Min Mountains on the edge of the Tibetan Plateau and stretches over 72,000 hectares (180,000 acres). It is known for its many multi-level waterfalls, colourful lakes, and snow-capped peaks. Its elevation ranges from 2,000 to 4,500 metres (6,600 to 14,800 ft). A long valley running north to south, Jiuzhaigou was inscribed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site in 1992 and a World Biosphere Reserve in 1997. It belongs to category V (Protected Landscape) in the IUCN system of protected area categorization.

"According to legend, the 108 lakes dotting the Jiuzhaigou Valley nature reserve were created when a goddess dropped the mirror she received from her lover, and it shattered into 108 pieces. Clumsy deities notwithstanding, each of these scenic lakes is pretty spectacular, and there are definite standouts: Five Flower Lake and Five Color Pond, located on opposite ends of the Y-shaped valley, both live up to their names with vivid hues and transparent waters. Except there are way more than just five colours."

[ Laghi de Fusine – "Italy" ]

This serene pair of glacial lakes are located about a mile from the Italian/Slovenian border, and while they’re both remarkably clear, it’s the larger of the two that draws the most tourist action. "The water here’s generally way too cold for swimming, but you can still get an up-close look at what’s under the surface by hopping in one of the rowboats available for rent." Once you’ve gotten sick of rowing, hit the hiking paths surrounding the lakes for some breathtaking views of the neighbouring Julian Alps.

[ Exuma – "Bahamas" ]

Exuma is a district of The Bahamas, consisting of over 365 islands, also called cays. Each of Exuma’s 360-plus islands is surrounded by clear, blue, Bahamian bathwater, whether you’re swimming with feral pigs on Big Major Cay or wading out into the surf on Tropic of Cancer beach — so named because it literally runs along the Tropic of Cancer. The colour, clarity, and temperature of the water are remarkable.

[ Rio da Prata – Bonito, "Brazil" ]

Thanks to the high concentration of underground limestone acting as a natural filter, the rivers surrounding the Brazilian municipality of Bonito are almost all vividly transparent. "The Rio da Prata is one of the clearest, allowing snorkelers to easily spot the shimmering scales of golden Dorados (otherwise known as delicious mahi-mahi) and yellow-finned Piraputangas swimming next to them."

[ Zamami – "Japan" ]

Zamami Island is 24 kilometres in circumference. The island has 3 settlements, which are Zamami, Ama, and Asa. "In the decades following World War II, Zamami became a popular destination thanks to its small size and brilliantly clear water." Tourists flock to spots like Furuzamami Beach to scuba dive and snorkel among the fish and coral reefs.

Folks also come for the chance to spot humpback whales in the spring and winter, whether from sightseeing boats or special observation gazebos. Tourism’s so big here, in fact, that 92% of the 924 people living on this Okinawan island chain are employed in the tourism industry.

Hvar – Croatia

Hvar is a Croatian island in the Adriatic Sea, located off the Dalmatian coast, lying between the islands of Brač, Vis and Korčula. Approximately 68 km (42.25 mi) long, with a high east-west ridge of Mesozoic limestone and dolomite, the island of Hvar is unusual in the area for having a large fertile coastal plain, and freshwater springs. Its hillsides are covered in pine forests, with vineyards, olive groves, fruit orchards and lavender fields in the agricultural areas. The climate is characterized by mild winters, and warm summers with many hours of sunshine.

Among all the world-class beaches along the southern Dalmatian Coast, the ones lining the island of Hvar are in a league all their own. The water here has a level of clarity you’d expect from a legit hotel pool, On top of that, Hvar has an average of 2,700 sunlight hours per year, more than any other Croatian island, so it’s not unusual to see the shadows of boats trailing beneath them as they drift through the sea-foam green water.

[ Lefkada – "Greece" ]

Lefkada, also known as Lefkas or Leukas and Leucadia, is a Greek island in the Ionian Sea on the west coast of Greece, connected to the mainland by a long causeway and floating bridge. The principal town of the island and the seat of the municipality is Lefkada.

The beaches on Lefkada are some of the best in all of Greece, particularly the ones along the west coast that face the Ionian Sea — from Porto Katsiki in the south to Kathisma in the north. Some of the beaches are strewn with pebbles, others with soft white sand, but they all have one thing in common: cool, turquoise waters so clear you’ll never have to worry about smashing your toes against invisible rocks hidden beneath the surface.

[ Koh Lanta – "Thailand" ]

Lying in the Andaman Sea to the west of the Thai mainland, Koh Lanta’s got some pretty sweet beaches where the water’s remarkably clear (if shallow). The real attractions, though, can be found at nearby diving spots where the deeper water affords snorkelers and scuba divers alike incredible views of ornate coral reefs, colourful fish, and hidden underwater caves.

[ Blue Lake – "New Zealand" ]

With an underwater visibility of up to 262ft, Blue Lake (or Rotomairewhenua) is officially the clearest lake in the world. Unfortunately, because it’s considered sacred (or tapu) by the Maori locals, humans are not permitted to enter the water, so you’ll be forced to either admire the clarity from the shore or check out an aerial view by booking a scenic helicopter flight.

[ Valley of the Five Lakes – "Poland" ]

Tucked way up in the High Tatras mountain range and running along the Polish/Slovakian border, these five alpine lakes each boast glassy, cerulean-tinted water.

The largest of the lakes, Morskie Oko (or “Eye of the Sea”), is also the most popular for tourists hiking the High Tatras and was chosen as one of the most beautiful lakes in the world by the Wall Street Journal. Totally a big deal among lake enthusiasts.

[ Wakatobi – "Indonesia" ]

This amazing marine dive resort is the ultimate paradise for swimmers. Located on the southern side of Indonesia’s Sulawesi Island, Wakatobi consists of 4 islands namely Wangi-Wangi, Kaledupa, Tomia, and Binongko. For lovers of underwater life, the resort has around 750 species of coral reef and approximately 942 fish species.

[ Enchanted River – "Philippines" ]

This pleasant river located at Surigao del Sur, Philippines offers the most serene blue waters, home to innumerable fishes and underwater species. For swimmers, snorkelers and underwater explorers, this place is the absolute destination.

[ Tobermory – Ontario, "Canada" ]

Known as the “capital of freshwater SCUBA diving”, Tobermory has Canada’s first National Sea Park, The Fathom Five National Marine Park. With more than 20 old shipwrecks, this place is alluring for scuba divers and swimmers.

[ Raja Ampat – "Indonesia" ]

Raja Ampat, commonly known as the Four Kings, is ranked among the top 10 diving destinations across the world and tops the list of places for underwater diversity. If you have a love for marine life, then check out this place, which has the most diverse species recorded so far.
