“The Adriatic Sea along this coast is part of the reason Croatia has become one of the hottest new destinations to visit in Europe. Dramatic limestone cliffs line the water and make it a totally unique experience,” the magazine writes.

Apart from the Dalmatian Coast the list featured some amazing bodies of water, including Lake Tahoe in California, Hanauma Bay in Hawaii, Exuma in the Bahamas and the Maldives.
