10 places with the world's bluest waters. Indonesia has the best one!
- The Maldives
Vacationers may argue about whether the Seychelles, Maldives, or Bora-Bora are the best places to visit (HINT: they all are!). The waters of the Maldives, on the other hand, are as clear as crystals and as blue as the sky. From snorkeling to scuba diving, these waters are ideal for water activities.
Travelers can also visit Vaadhoo at night to see the Sea of Stars' shimmering blue glow, which is made possible by bioluminescent phytoplankton. Its gorgeous rich-blue coast makes it a romantic location whether visited throughout the day or at dawn.
- Crater Lake, Oregon
What shade of blue is it? Crater Lake in Oregon is the place to go to find out. This spectacular caldera is surrounded by majestic mountains and old-growth woods. The rich blue tint of the lake, however, is even more appealing to visitors.
Crater Lake is one of the world's deepest lakes, and its waters are among the purest, as they are fed by snowmelt and rain. A hike around Crater Lake National Park is made even more beautiful by the view of this volcanic lake.
- Plitvice Lakes National Park, Croatia
The Plitvice Lakes are a UNESCO World Heritage Site that will make visitors feel as if they have stepped into another world. A network of lakes developed thousands of years ago make up this beautiful national park.
Plitvice Lakes National Park covers 30,000 hectares and is home to rugged mountains, breathtaking waterfalls, and some of Croatia's clearest waters. Take a swim while enjoying the peace and quiet of the rolling meadows and forest.
- Peyto Lake, Alberta
It's easy to see why Banff National Park is one of Canada's most famous and oldest national parks. Who could resist Lake Louise's beautiful clear waters? Peyto Lake near Banff, meantime, entices and attracts tourists every year with its brilliantly turquoise waters.
It appears like the glacial lake is made of Kool-Aid! Furthermore, Cauldron Peak stands guard above Peyto Lake, providing a stunning background for this famous tourist destination.
- Blue Lake, New Zealand
The Blue Lake is located in New Zealand's Nelson Lakes National Park in the South Island. This lake is blue in color but exceptionally clear, as its name suggests. The Mori regard the lake's beauty as sacred. The park surrounding the lake is open all year, so it provides for a terrific day excursion of hiking and exploring, especially when combined with the beautiful views of the lake.
- Jiuzhaigou Valley, China
When nature mixes turquoise, navy blue, red, yellow, orange, and green, people get Jiuzhaigou Valley. This Sichuan natural reserve is recognized for its stunning waterfalls, lush foliage, foggy mountains, and Five Flower Lake, which is located within the Min Mountains. This UNESCO World Heritage Site never ceases to astonish tourists by changing hue due to its chemical composition. Furthermore, because the lake does not freeze over in the winter, people can enjoy it all year.
- Great Blue Hole, Belize
When juxtaposed to the turquoise colour of the surrounding seas, the Great Blue Hole off the coast of Belize stands out. The Great Blue Hole may appear frighteningly blue to some. This attraction is a massive marine sinkhole with depths of 407 feet (124 meters)! Recreational divers flock to this stunningly blue swimming hole. It's a great place to see bull sharks and hammerhead sharks, as well as the spectacular Belize Barrier Reef Reserve System.
- Mount Ijen Crater Lake, Banyuwangi, Indonesia
The billowing smoke that pervades this crater lake only adds to its allure. Visitors to the Kawah Ijen Volcano in Banyuwangi will be met by a brightly colored crater lake that looks like candy. However, due to its extremely high hydrochloric acid level, this lake is not suitable for swimming (which gives the lake its signature color). Blue fire may also be seen near Mount Ijen Crater Lake, which makes for a spectacular photo opportunity.
- Lake Kaindy, Kazakhstan
At Lake Kaindy, the dead 1300 ft (400 m) spruce tree trunks give off a gloomy vibe. However, the lush foliage and beautiful hue of the lake suggest otherwise. The glittering waters of Lake Kaindy, located near Saty, Kazakhstan, are the result of thousands of years of rainfall. On a sunny day, it's simple to admire this lake, but diving beneath the surface reveals the spruce trees' preserved needles!
- Grand Prismatic Spring, Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming
In travel blogs and movies, people have seen many photographs of Yellowstone National Park's Grand Prismatic Spring. This beauty radiates with colours of green, blue, yellow, red, and a hint of pink as one of the world's largest hot springs.
Its bright colors are produced by microbial mats (or layers of bacteria and other microorganisms). Despite its fame and breathtaking views, many people may ask if the Grand Prismatic Spring is swimmable. Swimming is unfortunately not an option due to the high temperature and acidic content. The second-best alternative? Appreciating the natural beauty and snapping several photographs!
