Seas and oceans

More than 70 percent of the Earth’s surface is covered by a vast, continuous body of water: the ocean. Traditionally, this is divided into 5 regions: the Pacific, Atlantic, Indian, Arctic and Antarctic Oceans. These oceans are in turn divided into so-called secondary oceans, such as the North Sea, the Mediterranean Sea or the Caribbean Sea. An overview of the most important oceans and their most beautiful destinations can be found on this page.
