Best Snorkel Spots in the World

What do the best snorkel spots in the world all have in common?

Even though there are so many top snorkeling spots in the world to count and cover in a global review, our short list is intended to be a guide and reference to some of the top snorkeling destinations in the world but in no particular order or personal choice.

Best Snorkel Spots in Australia

The Australasian Continent is blessed with many thousands of kilometers of pristine shallow coastline with hundreds of small archipelagos and nearby islands. Gifted with an abundance of marine life varieties and coral reefs close to the shorelines, the Great Barrier Reef - GBR - Eastern Australia offers some of the most exhilarating diving destinations and a huge majority of the best snorkel spots in the world.

Western Australia is not without some very popular spots for snorkelers and includes favourites such as Ningaloo Reef and Rottnest Island where swimmers regularly see Humpback Whales, Turtles, Mantra Rays and Whale Sharks.

Top Snorkeling Destinations in the Caribbean

Although the Virgin Islands offer an abundance of particularly outstanding snorkeling sites, there are numerous Caribbean island escapes that are also blessed with great shallow spots just a short wade from the shoreline. Antigua and Bonaire rate high on this list with their turquoise warm water and thriving marine creatures.

Stingray City in the Cayman Islands is probably better known by divers for its close up encounters with 'people friendly' stingrays gliding around them, but swimmers and snorkelers can also appreciate this extraordinary experience in the crystal clear azure blue water.

Best Snorkeling Spots in Hawaii

Perhaps the most well-known of the best snorkeling spots in the world are in Hawaii. Snorkelling at the Hawaiian Islands should not be missed if you ever have the chance to visit this group of beautiful archipelago in the Pacific Ocean. Beneath the surface awaits a world teeming with underwater sea life such as large fishes, sea turtles, stingrays, eels and dolphins.

Even in water that's only waist deep, there are species of reef fish that are only common in Hawaiian waters. Novices can stay in the shallow bays while more experienced snorkelers can take a route through the reef to the coves and other outer reef areas.

Top Snorkeling in the Maldives Islands

If you are searching for a perfect getaway full and adventure and superb snorkeling sites, then the islands of the Maldives in the Indian Ocean has to be considered seriously for the quest. Offering unrivalled tropical scenery, the Maldives is one of the best locations to try snorkeling around its atolls and sand bar islands.

Be prepared for a greeting by whale sharks, huge parrot fish and snappers, rays, sharks and thousands of small tropical reef fish. Generally the best season for Maldivian water sports is December to March and then again from June to October.

All these destinations to find the top snorkeling in the world are included in our list of places to enjoy a family snorkeling holiday. Please contact us if you have any questions or comments.
