There are 19 Treasure Maps in the single-player campaign for Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag. These treasure maps are located throughout the islands Edward Kenway explores in game. Here is a guide for finding and using these maps, but if you just want to know the locations of the chest, here’s the quick and dirty.
Note: If you want to find these buried chests, you will first need the corresponding treasure maps.
These will be updated as I find more of them.

Chest 327, 334
This one was a bit difficult to find, as the location referenced in the coordinates appears to be in the middle of the water. This is not the case.
