Their waters beckon.
Sea – just the word itself can cause a variety of pleasant associations. For example, the incredibly beautiful sunsets, white sand and attractive depths. Of course, also on the sweet corn and baklava on the Black sea somewhere near Odessa.
Probably every Ukrainian was vacationing on the beaches of the Black and Azov seas. With water resources in Ukraine are very lucky. But the beauty of nature is not confined within the borders of the country.
Not all the seas of the world have the shore, and the square of the seas can be calculated. And in the clean sea of the world Weddel located next to West Antarctica, is generally not permitted. Because almost all of the year it is covered with ice and icebergs.
Understand, in heaven only say that about the sea. How wonderful it is… About sunset, they saw… On how the sun, plunging into the waves became crimson as blood. And felt that the sea has absorbed light energy into itself, and the sun was tamed, and the fire was already waning in depth. And you?.. What will you tell them? After all, you’ve never been to the sea – a quote from the film “to reach heavens”.
And so we have something to talk about, not only in heaven, but was something to remember after the holidays, we offer you to learn about the 7 most beautiful seas of the world. At least one of them is worth seeing in my entire life.
The red sea
The red sea is the cleanest of those that you can swim. This is despite the fact that quite close from the sea, is the Suez canal, and therefore oil tankers. And all because the ecosystem of the red sea has the ability to fully recover in record time.
Another reason for the purity of the sea – sea does not fall into any one river, which could bring mud and sand. The size and purity is not the only reason to visit this sea. The red sea is one of the most warm and salty seas (it ranks second after the Dead).
Red sea, Sharm El Sheikh
The name of the sea is not accidental. The sea is so called because of the unusual reddish water. Why water has such a color is not exactly known. Environmentalists argue that probable cause – algae, which give red color to water. But other researchers provide a more banal reason: the red color occurs because of the reflection in the water surrounding the rocks.
And another argument why you should visit the Red sea the richness of the marine fauna. It is the sea more than other attracts divers from all over the world. In the sea there are over three thousand different fish species and three hundred species of coral. If you want to feel like a researcher – at the bottom of the red sea is still possible to find wrecks.
The Caribbean sea

Just imagine: 9% of the world’s coral reefs located in the Caribbean sea! Many tourists come here in search of pearls.
Another feature of the Caribbean is, of course, movies about pirates, which are mostly removed in these waters. It is not surprising, because piracy flourished here since the 17th century.

On the surface of the sea slowly rise from the bottom of the ridges, which reach a length of about 2.5 kilometers. In addition, in some places, you can see a huge volcano, with a height of almost 3 kilometers. However, due to the large depth of the sea, on the surface are few.
For those who wish to visit the Philippine sea, it should be noted that the favourable period starts from late fall and continues until mid-spring.
