1. Seychelles

Located in the Indian Ocean and surrounded by clear, blue water, white beaches, and mountain peeks, Seychelles is the perfect place to kick your feet up, relax, and enjoy the beautiful sites it has to offer.

Seychelles is also the home of Aldabra, which is the largest coral island in the world.

2. Tahiti

Ever thought about taking a bath in spring water? Well, the water in Tahiti is so clear and clean that you can literally wake up and take a dip in the water for a nice, refreshing bath to get your day started off right.

This beautiful tropical destination is one of the most sought after places for honeymooners, and for good reason. Tahiti is simply a lovers’ paradise and if you’re into spas, this tropical island is the cream of the crop when it comes to spa treatments.

Those who visit this island enjoy the comfort of taking herbal rain showers surrounded by the scent and beauty of the island’s native flowers.

But check this out: You can also wrap your body in banana leaves for the ultimate full body pampering experience.


3. Fiji

There’s a reason why Fiji water is sold in stores. Fiji, which features more than 322 islands, has some of the cleanest, purest, and beautiful water you’ll ever set your eyes on.

Located in the Pacific Ocean, Fiji is a hotspot for those seeking romance and adventure. Speaking of adventure, if you’ve ever wanted to go scuba diving, snorkeling, jet skiing, hiking, sailing, running trails, diving off of cliffs, then Fiji is the perfect place to visit.

In fact, the water is so clear that you can see the fish underwater before you dip your head underwater to snorkel. In addition to that, scuba diving in Fiji provides you with the ultimate experience. Unlike many places in the Pacific where large fish and god knows what else can pop up out of nowhere simply because the water is so dark, at Fiji, you’ll be able to see any and everything as far as your eyes can see. The water is just that clear!

Located in the Philippines, this island is simply breathtaking. Surrounded by waterfalls and cliffs, this popular destination, which has become the main attraction in the Philippines, features five-star hotels, restaurants, and various accommodations that make Cebu Island a great place to enjoy nature’s natural beauty.

Cebu Island, which is also surrounded by more than 167 other small islands, is the place where Portuguese explore Ferdinand Magellan discovered the Philippines. In fact, Ferdinand Magellan’s grave is a tourist attraction on the Pilipino Island.

5. Maldives

Recently selected by the World Travel Awards as the world’s most romantic destination, Maldives is definitely a place you must visit before you die.

The fact that it has been selected by the World Travel Awards, which is the Oscar’s in the travel industry, says enough in itself. Maldives sits just one meter above sea level in the Indian Ocean.

But what makes this place so special, besides the crystal clear waters, is that visitors can treat themselves to a nice romantic dinner inside the island’s bungalows, where the floor is made of glass above the pristine water of luxurious island.

Virtually every destination in the world has at least one flaw, but one visit to Maldives and you’ll quickly discover that it’s very hard to find a single flaw anywhere on the island.

The water is clear, the accommodations are top-of-the-line, the number of indoor and outdoor activities is plentiful, and the weather is perfect.

In fact, the weather is so perfect that global warning is a big threat to the natural landscape of this highly sought after destination.


6. Bora Bora

Regardless of whether you live in a warm-temperature climate, such as Texas or a typically cold-temperature climate like Green Bay, Wisconsin or other places that might seem closer to home, Bora Bora is the perfect getaway to catch rays in the sun while enjoying breathtaking sites, clear water, and luxury to the extreme.

In fact, Oprah Winfrey is quoted as saying Bora Bora is her favorite place to visit, relax, and enjoy the fruits of her labor. Located in the South Pacific, Bora Bora is about an hour flight from Tahiti.

What’s really cool about Bora Bora, though, is the island was formed by volcanoes, which are now extinct. Those volcanoes that formed the island can now be seen as two peeks, which is a sight in itself to see.

So if you’re looking a place that has it all: Romance, adventure, interesting facts and historical events that took place to form the island, crystal clear water, and a place where the unexpected is expected, then Bora Bora is a definite destination to visit before you die.
