Malta's Blue Lagoon

jone_83

Contributor Jone_83 gives us an amazing bird's eye look at Malta's famed Blue Lagoon in this epic drone video.  The lagoon sits between the small island of Comino and the even smaller island of Cominoto.  These islands sit between the main island of Malta and Gozo, the country's second island.  Here you will get a glimpse of the sailboats and yachts of Europe's superrich floating in these crystal blue waters.  These waters "stood in" for ancient Troy in the 2004 blockbuster of the same name, starring Brad Pitt.

Sailing the New Caledonian lagoon

The French territory New Caledonia is less well known compared to other South Pacific spots such as Tahiti or Tonga.  Like most of the islands in the region, New Caledonia has some ideal sailing conditions, particularly for those who prefer calmer waters close to shore which  allow for other less wind-dependent activities such as stand-up-paddleboarding and scuba diving.  In this video, Martin_NC used a drone to record a weekend built around catamaran sailing at one of the island's beautiful lagoons.

The eastern part of the Yucatan Peninsula in southern Mexico is home to some of the world's most unusual geology.  Due to a combination of factors, the area is literally covered with phenomena like sea caves and lagoons, the likes of which in many cases can't be found anywhere else on earth.  In this drone video by jelipegomez, you'll get an aerial view of this amazing landscape around the town of Bacalar.  It lies on a lagoon of the same name which runs parallel to the shoreline to its east.

Here's a drone video of a well-known lagoon on the Iranian coast of the Caspian Sea, compliments of rezarafizadeh.  It's called Anzali Lagoon, and it's near the city of Bandar-e Anzali in the northern province of Gilan.  One of just a handful of wetlands in this vast Middle Eastern country, the lagoon has shrunk considerably in recent decades.  Despite its reduced size, it's still considered one of the top bird-watching spots in the region.  The lagoon is registered under the Ramsar Convention, an international bird protection treaty.

Releasing a Lagoon

Luiz Gerbase

Check out this fascinating drone video of a Brazilian lagoon being emptied into the sea via canal, compliments of contributor and pilot Luiz Gerbase.  Ibiraquera Lagoon is located a short distance in from the Atlantic coastline of Santa Catarina, one of the states which makes up the region of Southern Brazil.  When the lagoon becomes too full, in order to prevent flooding a canal is dug which allows it to drain into the ocean.  It's a fascinating phenomenon and the perfect way to view it is aerially.
