World’s Most Stunning Bodies of Water

By Planet Green

Lake Louise, Canada (below)

Located in the Canadian Rockies in Banff National Park, Lake Louise lures outdoor lovers from all over the world. Dotted with snow capped mountains and evergreens, it’s known as Canada’s “diamond in the wilderness.”

Crater Lake, Oregon

Crater Lake, located in south-central Oregon, is one of the clearest and bluest lakes in the world. It’s the main attraction of Crater Lake National Park and was initially formed by the volcanic eruption of Mount Mazama.

The Dead Sea, Jordan, Israel, The West Bank

The Dead Sea is located between Jordan, Israel, and the West Bank. It’s the lowest altitude below sea level on the earth’s surface. As much as 35 percent of the water is dissolved salts, six times as salty as the ocean. It’s so salty you won’t even need a float.

Devil’s Swimming Pool, Zambia

The Devil’s Swimming Pool is located just a few feet from the drop off of Victoria Falls, the largest sheet of falling water in the world. It’s a swimming pool created by Mother Nature a few feet from these deadly falls, on the border of Zambia and Zimbabwe.

Bahia Honda State Park, Florida

Bahia Honda State Park  is home to one of Florida’s  southernmost state parks, with crystal blue waters as far as the eye can see. It’s worth a trip off the beaten path.

Cape Agulhas, South Africa

Cape Agulhas is located on the Western Cape of South Africa. It’s the official divide of the Atlantic and the Indian Oceans, though the Cape of Good Hope is inaccurately known for it.

The Pacific Ocean Surrounding the Tahitian Islands

The Tahitian Islands are surrounded by a mystical ocean of small volcanic and coral islands . The water surrounding Tahiti, the largest island in the Windward group of French Polynesia, seems almost too exquisite to be real.

Bioluminescent Bay, Puerto Rico

It’s no understatement that Bioluminescent Bay on Vieques Island in Puerto Rico actually glows. Each gallon of water in the bay is home to 720,000 phosphorescent single-celled organisms that glow when they are agitated, leaving a neon blue trail.

Poipu Beach, Hawaii

It’s the best place to snorkel on the island of Kauai with awe inspiring sunsets each evening with the famous “green flash.” Whale and seal watching are also a must when visiting this aqua paradise.
