Nice, but it's a lake. You see that more often there than in the sea. For example, in my country the Nahuel Huapi lake has some beaches with clystar clear waters, like this:

Yes it's a lake. Not a tropical setting as the OP mentioned Cancun Mexico... a region where many American tourist utilize and its waters are awesome. The US state of Florida has White sand beaches that have tropical look and waters. I do not claim a lake is superior at all. Merely it is a huge inland lake with a major US city having clear waters was noteworthy.

Since the thread is quiet otherwise .... I will get carried away and post some pictures ...

The Lake does take on hues of blues too from the distance too?
The river is greenish and was reversed to not flow into the lake. In lower first picture.

Many beaches at the Mediterranean have crystal clear waters, I'll just name a few based on personal experience: Cote d'Azur, the greek islands of Kefalonia and Zakinthos, Sardinia, Corsica, Croatia.
