2015's Top 27 Clearest Waters

Puerto Ayora in Galapagos

Beautiful calm water is always rejuvenating to the senses, which is what you'll be in for here.  The waters are ideal for some sailing just about anytime you prefer. If you're also looking for some rather exotic animals, you'll be seeing local iguanas swim in the bay!

Bonito, Mato Grosso do Sul in Brazil

Due to the large quantity of limestone in the ground, the water of these rivers runs through a natural filter and impurities fall to the bottom of the river. This makes the Bonito rivers the clearest and most transparent in the world.  Things don't get anymore pristine and relaxing than this.

Aitutaki in Cook Islands

This place looks like something that came out of a movie.  Perhaps it was the inspiration for the Brooke Shields starrer, "The Blue Lagoon?"  Without a doubt, this is the most gorgeous Polynesian lagoon on the planet!

Culebra Island in Puerto Rico

It is also referred to as Isla Chiquita and Última Virgen.  The names are derived from the fact that the beach is at the end of the Virgin islands chain.  Nonetheless, if Paradise was worth searching for the ends of the earth, then by golly you've found it.

Lake Tahoe in Nevada

Lake Tahoe is considered to be the largest alpine lake in North America.  If you've ever been there, you can attest to such a fact.  Knowing that it is surrounded by breathtaking views of mountains just makes all the more of a satisfying experience.

To Sua Ocean Trench in Samoa

Here's an interesting bit of trivia for you guys: To Sua means "giant swimming hole" in Samoan. It's 30 meters deep and only accessible via a long ladder to the pool. It'll take some courage to climb down that ladder but t the end of the day, it's all totally worth it!
