Corfu is a Greek island in the Ionian Sea and is bound with the history of Greece from the beginning of Greek mythology. Its Greek name, Kerkyra or Korkyra, is related to two powerful water symbols: Poseidon, god of the sea, and Asopos, an important Greek mainland river.

The island’s history is laden with battles and conquests. The legacy of these struggles is visible in the form of castles punctuating strategic locations across the island. Two of these castles enclose its capital, which is the only city in Greece to be surrounded in such a way. As a result, Corfu’s capital has been officially declared a Kastropolis (“castle city”) by the Greek government.

Corfiotes have a long history of hospitality to foreign residents and visitors. The North East coast has largely been developed by a few British holiday companies, with large expensive holiday villas, while package holiday resorts exist on the north and east coasts.

This dream-like landscape is home to blue and black crabs, turtles, iguanas, chameleon-like and green lizards, dozens of species of birds, and amazing numbers of fish.

Dive into this seven-colored sea, and discover that in reality there are more than a thousand colors under the surface; lilac and yellow corals, silvery, red and blue fish, green algae, and countless tiny colored animals.

The bay is a protected area as is the surrounding park, hence there is an abundance of seal life just feet off the beach within its waters.

The thing that visitors like the most about this beach, is that it is totally isolated. 323 km from Santo Domingo and approximately 25 km from Pedernales (the nearest town) this beach is a true oasis in the middle of the deserted steppe of the park.

  70. @Dane I am Australian and your comment really annoys me. Returning to Australia after 10 years living abroad I find the arrogance of Australians to be an embarrassment. Yes we have a great country but no, we aren’t the best at everything, we don’t have a monopoly on beautiful places and we would do well to embrace other cultures and learn something new occasionally. So maybe cut the ignorant ‘Australia is the best’ rant and appreciate beauty wherever it is found.

    The clearest waters I have ever seen were in Croatia and Mexico, Australia wouldn’t even hit the top 5.

  71. @Dane most likely because the water is clouded by all the shark blood that those a-holes in your government spilled.. just a thought.

  72. You should try visit Indonesia! Big Pine Island, Karimun Jawa. white sand, clear water, fresh air and beautiful creatures under the water!

  73. Clear waters of our private beach hideaway here in Bataan, Philippines. Check out my FB page BATAAN NATURE ADVENTURES

  74. @Dane Your stupidity hurts me. The only ignorant one here is you, thinking that your country is the only country with clear waters. Newsflash, Australia doesn’t have the clearest water, best beaches, or most beautiful scenery. Sorry, mate.

  75. @Tyler Foss Lol. I live in Tampa, have my entire life, and can say with 100% certainty that the pic is NOT of tampa. No mountains, or even tall hills, in Tampa.

  76. Eleuthera, Bahamas at North Beach, Current.  Crystal clear, warm, with excellent swimming, snorkeling, kayaking, and fishing.

  77. Number 28 is not technically Bora-Bora. The picture in focus, with all those over water bungalows, is the island of Tahaa. That resort is Le Tahaa and is one of the best resorts and beaches I have ever been. BTW, the island behind it is Bora Bora.

  78. I guess whoever populated this list did not bother to take a trip to JACMEL, HAITI or a few other spots around the West Side of the Hispanolia Island…  It’s just weird how the world wants to highlight the poverty and charity drives for Haiti, but when it comes to show the natural beauty of the country, it’s not interesting enough for the world.  Yes, Haiti has some of the most beautiful beaches in the world and THAT’S A FACT!!!

  79. I think too That mystery spot is moorea. .Just in front of “les tipaniers” …gone there Last september..

  80. I’m going to assume the Author of this article has either never been to Australia, doesn’t like Australia or is extremely ignorant, because i believe the top 10 most clearest waters in the world would ALL be in Australia. Even just considering the fact that we have 1 of the 7 wonders of the world ACTUALLY being the great barrier reef should say enough. Anyways each to their own i guess

  81. You miss Tanjung Kelayang, Belitung, Indonesia, and some other spots in the biggest country of Southeast Asia

  82. DOMINICAN REPUBLIC! Bahía de las Águilas. You almost can’t see the difference between the beach and the sky. THE MOST BEAUTIFUL OF THEM ALL!

  83. Off the northwest shore of Moorea, Tahiti. It is the sandbar that you can stand on and feed the rays and black tipped sharks. Take the lagoon trip out to the sand bar. It is a must see.

  84. visit calaguas Island in Camarines Norte Philippines.. its a synonymous to crystal clear…. the best….

  85. Im from puerto rico and well yes I been in culebra’s beaches and i have to tell you it is paradise! specially after living somewhere else u realize that more, the best thing about it that they forgot to say is that the water is always pretty warm because the caribbean has no winter, so water is always summer like. I love santa monica beach because is fun, i like danube river in vienna, barcelona beach but they are all very cold even in summer, if u come in may to august water is very warm but weather is very humid and hot so u ll have to wear very light clothes and you will get a sun tan for sure. The boat from main island PR to culebra cost less than $5 i think..

  86. I am from South Florida, where the ocean is beautiful, but not as clear as these bodies of water! I do recall being on a train bound for Greece when I was a college student, and marveling at the Turkish ocean out the window! I had never seen such clear seas, just amazing!

  87. What about LOS ROQUES, Venezuela? I’ve been to Playa Blanca, Colombia and Bonito, Brazil, which are in this list and Los Roques has clearer waters. For sure!!

  88. Dubrovnik, Croatia 🙂 it’s one of the 10 top destinations to see before you die, beautiful..Beyonce was were there,too!

  89. Great list, but you missed Crystal Lake in Benzie County, Michigan- a 10,000 acres fresh water lake that beyond a doubt is the most beautiful in the world (ok, so I’m a little biased having been introduced to these clear waters at 9 months). But it truly is a great swim as well as magnificent to view in all seasons.

  90. ANY OF THE MANY TROPICAL ISLANDS OF THE PACIFIC OCEAN HAVE CRYSTAL CLEAR OCEAN WATERS & GORGEOUS WHITE SANDY BEACHES. MY PERSONAL FAVORITE, WHERE I CALL HOME– GUAHAN OR MORE COMMONLY KNOWN AS GUAM.

  91. How could you forget Lampedusa? An italian island whose Spaggia dei Conigli (Rabbit Beach) was elected best beach of the world 2012.. the first photo is made by me so please don’t take it 🙂

  92. Hurghada in Egypt is also awesome, apparently they are a many good spots on the red sea.
    I remember a place near Santorini in Greece but can’t remember where exactly, I’d assume there are many places on the med.
    Very nice article, just puts more places on the list to visit and takes us to back to some good times!

  93. Kwajalein Atoll, Republic of the Marshall Islands. Crystal clear, pristine water, hundreds of feet of visibility, gorgeous coral reefs, tropical fish, even WW II shipwrecks, 2,500 miles southwest of Hawaii.
    Magnificent diving, fishing, sailing, and swimming.

  94. I have to second Torch Lake in Antruim Co. Michigan. It was voted 3rd most beautiful lake in the world by National Geographic back in the 60’s or 70’s (not completely sure on the date). We love it, but don’t tell to many people, we like it quite!

  95. Torch Lake – Summer and Winter
    The picture they used in the article doesn’t show the real beauty of the lake at all

  96. I live in Torch Lake, Mi.  The pic you have is gorgeous, however does not do the lake justice.  Also, there is quite heavy boat traffic during July and August, especially at the SOUTH end of the lake.  Google Torch Lake on 4th of July.  The sandbar at the south end is always packed on the weekends.  Check it out!!

  97. AngieJohnson You’ve been? You should come to Torch Lake! Kid Rock wrote a song about it. It’s also beautiful! 🙂

  98. In a pristine New Zealand national park, the Blue Lake – also known as Rotomairewhenua – holds the title of the world’s clearest lake.
    Scientific tests carried out in 2011 by New Zealand’s National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research (NIWA) showed Blue Lake to be the clearest natural body of fresh water known Blue lake is characterised by blue-violet hues seen only in such clear natural waters. to man.

  99. Palominito Island, Gilligan Island, Icacos Cay and many more places, all of them in Puerto Rico. Not to mention Mosquito Bay in Vieques Island which is a Bioluminiscent Bay (avatar style). But I’m glad that Culebra got into the list 🙂

  100. It´s important to show to the World, how clear is the water from “CañoCristales” which is located in Colombia. It is a River full of different colors. Just Spectacular

  101. I have heard Crater Lake National Park is the clearest water in the world. However it is so deep, you can’t see the bottom.and it is very cold.

    1. I have just taken a look and you are correct it certainly is a beautiful place to swim. If we do another article about beautiful beaches will definitely include this one. Thank you for contributing to our article.

  102. Obviously who compiled this hasn’t travelled or seen enough….some don’t even qualify as crystal clear waters

    Isola Santa Maria Arcipelago della Maddalena

  103. Ponza, Italy – this place is called Chiaia di Luna. Ponz is an island near Capri Island. Crystal clear and warm waters!

  104. Most of the Eastern Coast of Sardinia has waters that look like the spots you pictured from Thailand and Hawaai. Cala Gonone, Cala Luna, Cala Ginepro, Santa Teresa di Gallura in the North.

  105. Hanauma Bay, Oahu, Hawaii

    Pristine, clear water stretches for miles. Lots of coral reefs which is strictly preserved. You are prohibited from touching or standing on them. Best snorkeling experience yet. You’re only able to swim out to the end of the bay near tail of the mountains or the waves can pin you against the rocks. Lockers, snorkeling rentals, restrooms onsite. No jet skis or boats allowed.

    Picture taken December 2013 the day after the Honolulu Marathon.

  106. Hm…I’m pretty sure that photo number 29 is not the Königssee in Bavaria. I know the lake quite well as my greatgrandparents’ house is very close to there and I spend quite a lot time there – and especially at the lake in summer. The mountains around (Germany’s second highest mountain is right there) there are a lot bigger and higher than the ones seen in the picture. Maybe it is some other lake in the Bavarian Alps but I’m quizte sure it isn’t the Königssee.

      1. I think you will eventually want to add a few more incredible beaches that are part of Puerto Rico to your list. Culebra is one of the islands that belongs to Puerto Rico. Playa Santa, Mar Chiquita, Rincon, Las Croabas… The north coast of our island is bathed by the Atlantic Ocean, wonderful beaches of coarser sand. We have wonderful Leatherback turtles who come to nest here during this time of the year, and whales on the west-south coast also.The south coast is the Caribbean Sea, pulverized soft white sand… shallow waters. Don’t miss coming here at least once in your lifetime… Enjoy!!!!

  107. Blue lake in NZ is actually the clearest body of water in the world known so far. Distilled water is known to be about 80 metres in its visibility range and Blue lake is guessed to be 70-80.

  108. This Is COMINO ISLAND in Malta , personally I find this jewel much more clearer than certain places I’ve seen above … It’s just simply a wonderful Island to visit.

  109. Rainbow Springs in Dunellon, FL is a spring fed river, crystal clear aqua freshwater. Great for swimming, scuba, & kayaking!

  110. 35 looks like Mo’orea in French Polynesia (almost sure), i have been exact on thats spot where they play with the stingray’s
    .

  111. Some of these places are not at all for swimming. Half of the propositions here are either too cold or too dangerous. Talking about clear waters, where is Elafonissi, Crete – with waters much clearer than some of these in the article. I wish there was some sort of categorization, I don’t feel that the Maldives and Königssee, Germany belong in the same list when in fact they offer a completely different experience. Anyway, thanks for taking the effort to write.

  112. I have been to nine of these destinations. I would love to go to the mystery destination and wonder if it is in Malaisia. I was due to go to a place with rays like this, and then never made it there. It looks really interesting.

  113. Lake Tahoe straddles the border between California and Nevada. So yes there is a Nevada side of the lake, complete with casino’s, why do you think the mob loved it up here 🙂

  114. La Laguna de la Media Luna or Las Cascadas de Tamul in Mexico are breathtakingly clear and pristine. Also, any of the dozens of cenotes throughout the rest of the country will do. Great snorkeling to be had!

  115. Number 29, Konigssee is actually Lake Eibsee outside of Garmische, Germany in Bavaria. Attached is another picture of it. My husband and I were there in July of 2013 and we canoed on this magnificently CRYSTAL CLEAR LAKE!! One of the most memorable experiences of my life!!! Absolutely crystal clear and GORGEOUS!!! It’s nestled at the foot of the Zugspitz. 🙂 If this were the Konigssee, the mountains wouldn’t be as low.

  116. This was taken as I was leaving Canouan Island. Located in the Grenadines, approximately 45 minutes from Barbados.

  117. #35 is Thailand I think, those look like freshwater stingrays in the picture, and those only exist in Indochina and Borneo.
    #29 is Flathead lake, Montana.

  118. I totally agree with you. What about mexico. I think they they just made this up because lake tahoe is under california not nevada

  119. Skinny dipping in Jiuzhaigou? Unlikely as it is illegal to stay in the park after closing hours (not to mention the freezing water)

  120. Lake Mackenzie on Fraser Island off the coast of Queensland in Australia and Dove Lake below Cradle Mountain in Tasmania.

  121. MakingMagique Oh, someone take me there! I’m from Colombia and I’ve never been to Playa Blanca before, people say it’s really beautiful! ❤

  122. I have been to Königssee …it is stunningly clear and clean but from memory it is kept that way by banning swimming and also the only powered boats on the lake are electric.

  123. laughingstock Canada is home to 60% of the world’s lakes. There are an estimated 3 million lakes in Canada. Finland doesn’t even come close

  124. iiii come from an island in the mediterranean called malta and we have a small island just off malta called comino where you can find the beach called the blue lagoon with the clearest turquoise sea ever!! i think this deserves a place amongst all these beautiful pics!!

  125. 35 Is not Stingray city.  Stingray city is in Cayman and there are no mountains like that there. And it is awesome!!  Seriously one of the best things I’ve ever done.

  126. 35 should be Stingray city…. somewhere nearby Cayman Island if not mistaken… I dont even dare to swim with those stingrays…. Water is more than crystal clear… blue and breathtaking. Awesome place to visit 🙂

  127. What about Los roques – Venezuela? or La tortuga – Venezuela, or mochima- venezuela…. We have many extremely clear beaches

  128. If I’m not mistaken, you are not allowed to swim in #21 (Pupu Springs, NZ)! It’s a Maori place and considered sacred! Please take if off this list or thousands of idiots will use this blog as an excuse for not obeying the signs!

  129. These are all beautiful places but like someone mentioned, Mauritius Islands, Seychelles are very beautiful places that have some amazing clear waters

  130. These are beautiful. Enjoy the peace and tranquilly they give you and stop making negative comments. I am sure there are allot of other beautiful places our Lord has put on this earth and the list could go on and on and on. I notices some were mentioned . Take another look at these pictures with a positive attitude and see how much more you will enjoy them. By the way think of your day with that attitude and it will look a lot better too.

  131. @abcd sad to say. the country with the most lakes is finland while the biggest is in canada. wonder who’s the idiot here…

  132. Perhentian, Kapas, Redang.. All in Malaysia. Tioman (31 in the list) is not the best these days for clear aqua waters.. The dive sites off Sandakan (listed 10 in the list as Sabah), faces security threats from pirates.

  133. if you think that this is the best photos for crystal clear water you should come to Egypt to see hoe the real clear crystal water looks like with the beautiful white sand

  134. what an idiot whoever this author is, probably American. the country with the most lakes on this planet, with so much untouched nature and clean water …. Canada! …. is not even mentioned once.

  135. Silver Springs in Florida! They shot the old Tarzan movies there, and it features the clearest water I’ve ever seen!

  136. What about the Maya Riviera? Cozumel, Tulum, Playa del Carmen and Isla Mujeres have beautiful clear water.  And then there’s Tahiti…

  137. Yes, HOLBOX ISLAND in the MEXICAN CARIBBEAN IS MISSING!!! Clearer that some spots mentioned here. Which ‘connoiseur’ wrote this article???

  138. Nowhere from the west coast of Scotland and the Hebridean Islands?  Surprisingly beautiful clear waters for miles and miles to be found there and all in the warmer waters fed by the Gulf Stream.

  139. ZakiAlbahar I think Pulau Perhentian is much more clearer. i can’t even able to forget the 3days i was there. i am like in heaven.

  140. BdaSweetLady There are plenty of untapped clear blue beaches in JA . You visited a populated area that’s probably man made for tourist

  141. djprincemad1 maybe, but not in Jamaica according to this list lol. And I have been in JA waters. You got nothing on Bermy

  142. I am extremely happy to see Panama and Ecuador listed!  😀 However, you have certainly missed Playa Flamenco, Puerto Rico!

  143. You forgot one of the best place of the world : French Polynesia : Bora Bora, Moorea, Fakarava, Rangiroa… Blue, clear and warm water – temple of scubba diving, surf and happy people 😀
    You will always welcome

  144. It’s really good to see so many people being proud of their country’s beautiful beaches and all. Suggestions are good but let us not get all upset just because they don’t make it to this list. In any case, I’m thankful for this list because it gives me so many more suggestions on the places I can visit 🙂

  145. Where is BORA BORA?  35 clearest waters in the World and Bora Bora (specifically) isn’t on the list?  Or in the comments I’ve read so far…..?

  146. Egypt has the clearest , most illuminated, warmest beaches with the softest velvet sand. .Minus the sharks you might find elsewhere

  147. The North coast in Egypt are the clearer, most turquoise and one of the warmest sea one can swim in.. Not to mention the red sea in sharm el sheikh and Hurgada where you can dive too

  148. Venezuela has places that can compete with each of the ones you listed here, and they are just in one single country. But it is up to you to discover them.

  149. What about Cyprus? They have the best beaches in Europe and very very clean waters!! Look for Blue Lagoon beach at Akamas!!

  150. @jovimom Yes, Skaneateles is lovely; I grew up on that lake. If you thought it was clear now, you should have seen it in the 60’s. Water so clear and blue it rivaled Sardinia, the most amazing water I have seen since.

  151. Thingvellir Iceland. There are rifts where the North American and European plates intersect filled with ultra clear cold water.

  152. CogieSison You are correct about Barbados.  I wonder about the criteria for making this list.  I agree with Bermuda but Barbados and other West Indian islands being excluded is just suspect.

  153. Yes the beautiful island of Bonaire, just off the coast of Venezuela and one of the TOP 10 best diving and snorkeling sites in the world………maybe I should just email a picture. 50 years of marine conservation effort !. Cristal clear waters !.

  154. Skaneateles Lake Ny  “so pure the city of Syracuse uses it unfiltered” saw it for the first time this summer… GORGEOUS!!!

  155. Awesome list! I have been to 10 of the 35….
    Must re-iterate what some people have said here though…slightly biased author (5 of the list are USA)
    Where is Canada? … No 1. most coastlines/waterways in world
    Where is Indonesia? .. No. 2 most coastlines/waterways in world
    Where is my home country?… Australia! : )

  156. great places! I definitely recommend hanauma bay in Oahu…unbelievable place! someone may also want to include Grand Cayman … crystal clear water in tiki beach!

  157. iamjhelojasmin  much as i would love to agree with your opinion, i fear that some of what you said are untrue.  For one, Philippines is composed of 7,107 islands and not 1,700 islands and is the second largest archipelago in the world after Indonesia.  Second, only more than 5 million foreign visitors visited the country and not 100 million.  I love Philippines though as I am Filipino myself.  However, I agree with you that the Philippines is an extraordinary country, being more closely related to Latin America in temperament and attitude in a region of mostly buddhist and islamic countries.

  158. What about the great places in Canada – the north coast of Lake Superior has many beautiful beaches, not to mention British Columbia. It’s not always cold in Canada!

  159. Just for your Information: Indonesia is THE BIGGEST archipelago country in the entire world consisting of 17,508 islands. None made the list? Like seriously? That’s a joke. Clearly the writer of this article live inside the black hole. Or under a rock.

  160. So basically you’ve collated pics from the web showing reasonably clear water and said where it is, then claimed they are the clearest in the world.  Wow excellent research!

  161. There are 17,508 islands in Indonesia, and only 6000 are inhabited, sure there are a lot of beaches that clearer than any other place you could imagine, and don’t forget the islands are still virgin too… and where is Australia? Australia has so many clear beaches too…

  162. CANTINGAS RIVER in Sibuyan Island, Romblon, PHILIPPINES – The country’s cleanest inland body of water, river category…

  163. I can’t believe they listed no.9 as a place to swim, this is a national heritage site, and the water is very heavily protected because of it’s delicate calcium balance. YOU CAN’T SWIM THERE! It’s beautiful to look at but that’s it. The writer has obviously never been to half these places!!

  164. SakisVoulas ..yeah ur ryt!!been to greece twice(mykonos and crete),,i wonder why they didn’t mention it,,and so my country philippines,too many great beaches to explore too,,
    thank you for appreciating my country!!

  165. SakisVoulas its More Fun in the Philipppines.!!!
    Philippines is like a paradise!
    if you dont know, Millions Of tourist came here in almost 10 mothes,, ( 100 million tourist all over the world)

  166. @gogo nope, Your wrong. Philippines is compose in almost 1,700 islands. and every island have an extra ordinary beauty. Search in google

    Boracay
    Palawan
    Mayon Volcano
    Banaue rice Tarraces

    and almost 100 Million Visited here in the Philippines in 10 months

  167. Island Empress Philippines is Deserving To won the title of Clearest Water in the world, If you travel in Palawan, Philippines.. i will see the Beautiful white sand, fresh air, Cool Temperature, and its Extra Ordinary Sky Blue Water, and if you are went there. you will feel that you are in PARADISE. Promise 🙂

  168. I Declared Philippines as ‘COUNTRY OF THE YEAR’

    Miss Supranational 2013

    Miss World 2013 (Megan young)
    Champion : Dunk Competition ( Kobe Paras)
    Champion in PYRONALE (fireworks competition)
    Clearest Water in the world
    Best Summer Destination for 2013
    Cutiest and good Looking guys in the world ( Quezon city ) Mr. Aljur Abrenica
    Most Economical Country in Asia

  169. Blue hole Santa Rosa New Mexico, Artesian well similar to the one in Samoa. 🙂 Used for training divers throughout the Southwestern United States! 🙂

  170. I see you have never been to Italy eh? May I recommend you to add to this list some places in Sardinia, for example “le piscine di molara” where you can count the sea shells on a 15 meters deep sea.

  171. SakisVoulas know what.. why wont you try visiting all those beaches and see for yourself.. if you don’t believe those photographers who took those shots being seen above..

  172. Ok ok ok…. But… Why you hate Italy? In Italy in Puglia, sicily, Sardegna, Capri, Ischia, Lampedusa, 5 terre, Gargano and a lot Of Other place we have cristalline waters… And you can enjoy also our great food, our awsome history, and our funny politic.

  173. @Charles Crane The waters off Tinian are so clear I could not dive until I had broken the surface  with my face to check the considerable depth. That was 1945, it may have changed.

  174. @Trinitrophenol  i was there last christmas and it was like that, they have naval war games off the coast of the island and diving practices which have developed broken coral everywhere and garbage floating in the water

  175. Bermuda needs to be #1, there is not any place more cleaner, ocean more clearer, sand more pink= beautiful BEACH SCENE hands down.

  176. Koh phi phi don is NOT the clearest water to swim in. There is clearer water than overcrowded phi phi. If u in phuket or nearby, go to Similan island and Koh Tachai, millions times better than phi phi.

  177. Come to the island of Hispaniola – from the gin clear cenotes of Santo Domingo, DR to the transparent azure waters of Ile la Vache, Haiti……

  178. I’m pretty sure that Crater Lake is ridiculously cold year-round (having seen the snow fall in that area it’s no surprise, plus it’s über-deep). But it is a gorgeous lake, I have to give it that.

  179. Who had made the list????Hahahaha,its fake…They didnt been to all over the world,didnt count the clearity of the water and of course didnt been at Greece…Just look how many beaches in Greece have blue flag in Greece and how many the other countries in the world….And of course in Philippines,and so many other places which didnt mentined to this funny list…

  180. I’m surprised none of the coral reefs of Micronesia were listed. Guam, Palau, and others far exceed most of these listed from a divers view.

  181. As a passionate outdoor swimmer, I have made the rounds and fortunately since childhood. Bermuda & Hawaii are among them while the Maldives and Madagascar have been on my very short list. There were some surprises here – Columbia & Honduras but I can hardly believe you missed Lampedusa and Sardinia! The latter was my summer campground 1968-1970 and the water is still almost beyond compare but Lampedusa, off Sicily, I discovered on a wedding anniversary trip is a sleeper with some of the clearest water I have ever seen.

  182. Tioman Island is no longer clear water. Tons of dumb tourists pollute the waters till the visibility is only like 8m now and the water is cloudy

  183. I could add a few places to this list. Have a lot of swimming to do according to this list. Only been to one on this list.

  184. My country the Philippines consists of 7,101 islands and only about 30% are inhabited. We have the most beautiful beaches in the world. If you are not satisfied in 1 beach, then try the remaining 7,106.  🙂

  185. I’ve been to 4 places in there….that sad ! but for me there is many places with clear water, nobody knows about it but you should check out Raivavae this is a AMAZING spot !!!
    About the mystery spot, i guess its Moorea, where you can swim with ray ! (i’m writing this comment now and i can see the island ) 🙂

  186. teedee811 I saw this a couple of days ago, there are better places in Malaysia than the 2 listed, Perhentian and islands off Sabah

  187. majaa Tioman deserves a higher spot. Been to the islands from Cebu and near Phuket but nothing is compared to the clearness of Tioman beach.

  188. Maybe a chengdu,
    Maybe a chongqing,
    Winding up and down,
    A careful treat.
    Nothing compares to
    Shanghai nor Guangzhou.
    A sight of feat

  189. Being a Sabahan, I take slight offense as Sabah being described as a remote Malaysian state.  As stated by KhalisalBakree, Sabah is pretty big. Making a broad statement like that gives people the wrong impression.  Go to Kota Kinabalu, the capital, and visit Tanjung Aru (a popular, if not dirty and overcrowded, beach) and you will NOT get the sort of beaches portrayed above.  Would help to be more precise.  Plus, Bak Bak Beach is WITHIN Sabah. So, its either redundant or be more precise when you mention Sabah?

    Other than that, doesn’t hurt to look at the pretty photos.

  190. You should look at Seychelles …. Every island has crystal clear waters , Even the royal couple picked it as their honeymoon destination

  191. I’ve been to Cala Macarelleta in Menorca, and it is probably the most beautiful beach I’ve been to, pictures don’t do it justice. 
    But no, it definitely is not “one of the least-crowded beaches you’ll find in Spain”. I went in May, hardly high season and still too cold to swim, but it was quite crowded for a beach as small and remote as Macarelleta. It is absolutely packed in the summer, no doubt.

  192. Guys come to Malaysia…    apart from the monsoon season… yes are pretty good all year roung. KhalisAlBakree  has got some good pointers 🙂
