Crystal kayaks are here to level up your beach photoshoot!

The newest way of showing off your beach vacay is here! Social media is flooded with images of crystal kayaks as beachgoers share their entries for the trend. Along with azure waters and snow-white sandbars, crystal kayaking is also every beach’s latest tourist attraction.

After all, kayaking has always been a staple activity that completes every beach getaway. No matter which beach you go to, kayaking is a must-try activity to round off your trip. The water activity uses a paddle and a canoe-like watercraft that is low-to-the-water, which lets anyone explore and experience the tranquil currents of any stream of water.

So, what exactly is all the hype about these kayaks?

Well, visitors are fascinated by these tiny boats because of their unique design. That’s why crystal kayaks (a.k.a. clear kayaks) are becoming the favorite picturesque spot of beachgoers today. Because of the rowboat’s transparency, it appears as though you are magically floating on the water.

With their friendly boatmen serving as photographers, beach resorts and kayak rentals began to provide photography services to their visitors. In addition, you can pose as much as you desire on top of the crystal kayak while feeling good about your physical beauty. You will surely leave with Instagram-worthy pictures and an experience to remember with this new beach activity.


Thanks to the crystal photoshoot trend, beachgoers learned how to model—flaunting their beach bodies while emphasizing the magnificent scenery behind them.

Here are some amazing crystal kayak photos we think are worth sharing.
