1  Panari Island Okinawa – Japan

Aragusuku Island is called “Panari” by locals because it means “separated”. It comprises two islands, Kamiji and Shimoji that are connected by a coral shoal. During low tide, you can actually walk between the two islands. This area was once home to Dugong which are manatee looking mammals. The locals would catch these dugong and use them to pay their taxes to the Ryukyu Government.

2  Maldives

The Maldives, a tropical paradise of pristine beaches, are an archipelago of 1,192 coral islands grouped into 26 coral atolls (200 inhabited islands, plus 80 islands with tourist resorts) in the Indian Ocean. They lie south-southwest of India and are considered part of Southern Asia.

January to March could see the clearest water, absolutely crystal clear. Negligible plankton and being on the edge of a channel may have helped the clarity. Plus as weird as it sounds, the water was noticeably colder in January (not cold but just less bath type temp)

4  Bonito – Brazil

Down in Brazil there is a great little town called Bonito and on the outskirts of town are rivers that have colourful fish. Bonito is a municipality located in the Brazilian state of Mato Grosso do Sul. Its population was 17,275 (2007) and its area is 4,934 square kilometres (1,905 sq mi).

Being rivers, there is a constant flow of water happening, meaning that you simply put on your snorkel, fins and suit and float on down the river. It’s a great way to snorkel. First, the water is normally very clear. Second, the current takes you downstream at a leisurely pace, so you don’t even have to use your flippers. Third, the water is often only about waist deep, so no worries if you’re a poor swimmer.
