Where is the sandy beach white and where is the water blue? These are the questions that arise when dreaming about vacation planning. But you don't have to travel that far to swim in the bluest waters of the world. The water at a beach in Albania is the bluest in the world, according to new research.

Also known as Mirror Beach, Baskira in Albania has earned the title of having the bluest water beach in the world. The blue waters surpass even the famous beaches of Maldives, Mauritius, Bora Bora, Croatia and Greece.

Shades of blue were analyzed

This was revealed in an investigation conducted by CV Villas, a villa rental company. The exact color tone of the water was determined by accurate color analysis of unedited images from Google Maps. It was then compared to the official blue color to determine which water tone came closest.
