Here is the famous Halong Bay in Vietnam.

On the south coast of Crete, a beach town called Plakias sits within a small, glimmering bay.

And finally, here is a harbor, which is sort of like a bay, but more so.  A harbor is a place on the coast where vessels may find shelter, esp. one protected from rough water by piers, jetties, and other artificial structures.   Here is the harbor at Mutrah in Oman.
