The study meticulously analyzed satellite images of 200 global beaches using digital color codes, revealing a surprising discovery: Pasqyra Beach (also known as Mirror Beach) in Albania, on the Ionian Sea, boasts the world’s bluest waters. This distinction is the outcome of a thorough examination.

Among the top 30 beaches that closely match the YInMN blue shade, 26 are located in Europe, with Greece leading the charge with seven spots on the list. Notably, Paralia Mpouka in the Peloponnese and Kassiopi in Corfu are ranked second and third, respectively.
