The World's Most Beautiful Bays Beacon

The World’s Most Beautiful Bays Beacon

Some of the most beautiful bays of the world are posted here. The bays include locations where many open water swims are held.

The France-based global organization calls attention to the importance of identifying the most beautiful stretches of coastline of the planet with emphasis on bays that are a symbolic link between the ocean and the mainland. President Jérôme Bignon explains, “The arc shape of bays is in itself a schematic representation of the confrontation or meeting of these two worlds. This subtle delimitation naturally favours confrontations and exchanges more strongly than anywhere else. Due to this area for exchanging ideas, and concrete achievements, the members of the world’s most beautiful bays club should or must become international references for intelligent management of coastal areas.”

The list includes: Mont St Michel Bay (France), Bay of Somme (France), Gulf of Morbihan / Bay of Quiberon (France), Saintes Bay (Guadeloupe – France), Girolata & Porto gulf (France), Peninsula Valdés (Argentina), Mindelo Bay ((Cape Verde), Agadir Bay (Morocco), Ha Long Bay (Vietnam), Banderas Bay – Puerto Vallarta (Mexico), Bantry Bay (Ireland), Setubal Bay (Portugal), San Francisco Bay (USA), Praia do Rosa Bay (Brazil), Tadoussac bay (Canada), Table Bay and False Bay (South Africa), Bay of Chaleur (Canada), Qingdao Bay (China), Backwaters of Kerala (India), Diego Suarez bay (Madagascar), Boka Kotorska (Montenegro), Pemba Bay (Mozambique), Puerto Galera Bay (Philippines), Bodrum Bay (Turkey), Nha Trang Bay (Vietnam), Lang Co-Hue Bay (Vietnam), Cartagena de Indias Bay (Colombia), Yeosu bay (South Korea), Samana and Rincon Bays (Dominican Republic), Sine Saloum (Senegal), Bay of Cambodia (Cambodia), Grikos-Patmos Bay (Greece), Bay of La Baule (France), Bay of Horta (Portugal), Bay of Fort de France (Martinique) and Bay of Roses (Spain).
