San Alfonso del Mar – Chile

This lagoon is completely man-made! San Alfonso del Mar has transformed the Chilean beach into a double-barrelled aqua park, with the real beach on one side and a glorious lagoon on the other. The lagoon, developed by Crystal Lagoons, is energy-efficient too, using up to 100 times fewer chemicals than a regular swimming pool system, and 30 times less water than a golf course.

Blue Lagoon – Croatia

Blue Lagoon in Croatia has no coral reefs, as it was formed between a number of small islands separated by the lagoon between them. This does not impact its beauty, as the Adriatic sea is crystal-clear and shallow, so all the sea life is visible.

Comino – Malta

The island of Comino in Malta is car-free and practically uninhabited, meaning this lagoon is almost untouched. Wild plants such as thyme grow all around the area, so a swim in the lagoon can be accompanied by the tantalising scent of fresh herbs.

Ko Olina Lagoons – Hawaii

These Hawaiian lagoons were human-made to create a relaxing place for non-surfers to enjoy the water. The stone walls protect the lagoon from the open sea, making it a perfect location for snorkelling and shallow diving.
