Even though summer may be coming to an end, we still want to take beach vacations. We’re content as long as there is warm weather, white sand beaches, and clear water. You should put these places on your bucket list if you find peace in looking out over a body of water.
Devil’s Bay, British Virgin Islands
This bay is so breathtaking that it nearly seems as though the devil himself struck a bargain to create it. On Virgin Gorda in the British Virgin Islands, Devil’s Bay is the spot to go if you’re looking for pristine blue sea. One side of the bay has calm water, while on the other side there are some rougher waters.
Lac Saint-Jean: Lac Saint-Jean (in Quebec) is known for being one of Canada’s largest lakes and provides stunning views from all angles—including its famously bright sapphire hue.
Crater Lake, United States
The fact that Crater Lake in Oregon fills the crater of a dormant volcano contributes to its uniqueness. It is also distinct since there are no incoming streams or water sources. The lake’s water is as clean as it gets as a consequence! The United States’ deepest lake, at 1,943 feet, is a sanctuary for scuba divers thanks to its deep blue colour. Snorkelers and kayakers have their own sections of the lake to enjoy. If you’re lucky, you’ll spot a bald eagle and an otter on your visit!
Five Flower Lake, China
The stunning Five Flower Lake is located in China’s Sichuan province’s Jiuzhaigou National Park. The water is so pure that guests can see the tree trunks that have fallen and left a crisscross pattern on the bottom. It’s said that these patterns were made by the dragon of five flowers who resides under the lake, making this an even more enchanting destination for those who are looking for some spiritual guidance.
The lake is also known as Dragon Sea, as there are many legends about dragons living under this lake. This ethereal destination has been listed as one of UNESCO’s World Heritage Sites since 1992 because it represents outstanding natural beauty to this day.
