Lakes are great destinations for summer vacations. You can see some of the most spectacular sights on Earth from some of the most beautiful lakes in the world. Here are what we think of as the world's most beautiful lakes in the world, check them out and see why these beautiful lakes are so sought after.
- Lake Bacalar, Mexico
Lake Bacalar is located in the extreme south of Quintana Roo, Mexico(near the border of Belize). The varying shades of turquoise and blue are just magnificent. If you are into snorkeling and diving, this is one of the best places in the world to do it. With the white limestone bottom and clear water in the background, you should be able to snap some beautiful photographs easily without adjusting the camera angle because anywhere you look is just so beautiful.
- Hutt Lagoon, Australia
Want to see something magical? The salty water of Hutt Lagoon in Australia can transition from bubblegum pink to purple or red. The color of the water will change at different times of the day and in different season. The view is strikingly dynamic. If you drive along the salt flats between Port Geogory and Kalbarri just before sunset, you might even be able to see the color of the water change right in front of you.
- Lake Bled, Slovenia
Lake Bled is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Slovenia and there’s a good reason for it. Picturesque views are just everywhere. Looking down, you will see the emerald waters. And you are surrounded by the vistas of Julien Alps. Not far away is the Disney-like castle high on a hill.
- Lake Como, Italy
Lake Como continues to attract visitors from all around the world with its sprawling villas, Riva-lined marinas, and romantic promenades. Villa d’Este is a 16th-century old-world palace famous for its fountain-filled formal gardens and floating pool, boat rentals are available for you to start a cruise across the lake.
- Laguna Colorada, Bolivia
Bolivia’s “red lagoon” might make you wonder if you’ve enter another dimension. Red algae gives the shallow salt water its distinct rusty hue, which is broken up every so often by white pools made up of borax deposits that sit on the surface. And you will see flamingoes flocking here to feast on plankton. What you might not know is they are actually white by nature, their feathers appear to be pink due to being stained by the algae they wade through.
- Lake Tahoe, California
Lake Tahoe is one of America’s greateat and most famous destinations. For outdoor enthusiasts, it’s a paradise for outdoor adventures. You can come here in any season as the beautiful views last throughout the year. Tourists gather here to see its turquoise waters and sandy beaches. Most visitors come here for sailing, paddle boarding, kayaking or tackling the Tahoe Rim Trail for views of the basin.
- Crater Lake, Oregan
Reaching a depth of 1949 feet, the remarkable Crater Lake is America’s deepest lake. The famously clear and intensely blue water was there because of the eruption of Mount Mazama six thousand years ago, leaving a cavernous caldera. You can base yourself at the Crater Lake Lodge to enjoy breakfast with a view before a ranger-led boat tour that touches on the park’s geology.
- Lake Minnewanka, Canada
Banff National Park is one of Canada’s biggest attractions. Inside the Park, there are some beautiful lakes for you to explore. You can drive deeper into the park to Moraine Lake to enjoy the tranquil turquoise waters and the magnificent views of surrounding mountains and waterfalls. But our favorite is the glacial Lake Minnewanka in the eastern part of the park where you can enjoy the epic views of the Canadian Rockies.
- Lake Titicaca, Peru and Bolivia
This is the largest lake in South America(3200 square miles) and highest navigable lake in the world(12500 feet above sea level). The sparkling blue water and snow-capped mountains are all postcard-perfect views. The local people will make you feel welcome. The biggest attraction here are the floating villages near Puno, Peru.
- Lake Baikal, Russia
You’d be surprised by how many records this amazing body of water holds. Lake Baikal is the oldest lake in the world, as well as the deepest, containing 20% of the world’s fresh water which is as much as all five Great American Lakes combined. It’s also one of the cleanest and clearest lakes in the world due to its isolated location and absence of minerals. The views here are beautiful throughout the year, meaning that you can come here at any time and see different sides of the lake.
