famous bays

The beauty of a bay is revealed as the sun sets, casting an ethereal glow on calm waters and white sand beaches. In some parts, you can hear waves lapping at the shore while other places might be completely still ridden by the serenity that seems to last indefinitely into eternity.

A bay is a body of water with calmer waters than its surrounding sea. When large and deep enough, bays become natural harbors which offer a great economic advantage to the cities located on them as well as strategic military value in protecting shipping lanes against pirates or other obstacles that might try blocking access into an important harbor like Genova Bay for example. This top 10 features some beautiful areas around our world’s oceans where you can find peace while appreciating how lucky we are!

Top 10: Bay of Fundy

Bay of Fundy

The Bay of Fundy is a shallow body of water that has caused some controversy over the years because many people believe it could potentially hurt ship stability. Many other residents enjoy its underwater scenery, which includes beautiful beaches and vibrant fish life!

The tides in this bay are famous for being some of the highest and lowest water levels around. The Bay of Fundy has an unusual shape that makes it easy to tell when there will be higher or lower tide because you can see different reflections happening on top each time! One way I always enjoy seeing these changes is by heading over to Hopewell Rocks where they’re documented beautifully through photo albums with spectacular views–you might even get lucky enough to get your picture taken while standing near one too 🙂

Top 9: Paradise Bay

Paradise Bay

Paradise Bay is a popular stop for cruise ships on their way to or from Antarctica. It has beautiful views, like the ice cliffs and heavily glaciated mountains that surround it- which means you can spend some time exploring them before your departure! You might even meet some penguins while there as they are often photographed near this bay because of the many amenities offered by Chileans who live at nearby research stations (such as visiting an inflatable boat with zodiacs).

Top 8: Bay of Islands

Bay of Islands

The Bay of Islands is one place in New Zealand that you can’t miss out on. With 144 islands, most secluded bays, and some great sandy beaches this beautiful area has an abundance of marine life including penguins; whales; dolphins – even big marlin! Not surprisingly it’s also where international sport fishermen meet up during their world cruises or just when they’re looking to take vacation time off from work. The historical significance makes this bay extra special too: It was the first part of our land settled by Europeans back when people were still exploring what would become known as “The NZ Geographic Region.”

Top 7: Bay of Kotor

The Bay of Kotor is a serene, beautiful place to visit with its many islands. The water here looks clean and clear blue in color which makes for excellent views from atop cliffs or while sitting onshore enjoying this idyllic setting along Montenegro’s Adriatic coastline!

The Bay of Kotor is a hidden gem in Montenegrin waters. It’s one of Europe’s most beautiful bays and often mistaken for a fjord, but it actually has some interesting history behind it!

With thousands upon islands located along its 120 kilometers long coastline and thick jungle vegetation on every inch, this bay truly is like no other place on earth!
