I'm having trouble finding the last few treasure chests.

I have 3 sets left. I have absolutely no idea what to do.

1st set: This is near Amanaki town, one of the the first areas of the game. It's two chests placed near a shed. They seem to be about 20m underground but I cannot find any caves or openings nearby where they would be. The coordinates are (457,731).
Here are two pictures: http://i.imgur.com/XAuVWn7h.jpg and http://i.imgur.com/zMYsC0kh.jpg

2nd set:

This one is on a tiny island near Birdhouse Tower, On the central east portion of the north island. This one is supposed to be right on top of the island but I cannot seem to locate it anywhere. The coordinates are (730, 710). Pictures: http://i.imgur.com/ZVhqZBAh.jpg and http://i.imgur.com/sUhOzpQh.jpg

3rd set.:

This one is weird. This chest is under a picnic bench, Near Littlegate Bridge on the SW portion of the South Island. I can see the chest perfectly, but when I walk up to it, the prompt to open it doesn't show up. Does anyone know about this? The coordinates are (296, 367).

When in doubt, look for the nearest water source on the map and explore that area.

This could be a tiny dot of blue on land to indicate a hidden cenote or just a small cave branching off a nearby river. The first chests you indicated near Amanaki Town are accessed via the river, IIRC.

Also, don't forget that you can mark loot chests on the map to make a square icon appear on the screen as you explore. This can tell you the exact height difference, and is generally handy to locate other chests that are underwater.

I specifically remember duck-walking around the grass looking for those loot chests near Amanaki town lol.

Friends,

90% of the time, these are in caves UNDER you. they show on the map on a hill, becasue its top down, but in fact, its underground.

Starting circling that spot around and around. Look for black sections on your map. Those usually are caves. Its usually one of two ways. Either a cave, or a water thing that turns INTO a cave.

if you can not find a cave, try to find the closest water, and swim around there, underwater, looking for a path or way into that section.

I FIRST thought they were up in trees, I THOUGHT i had to shoot them down, or burn down the trees. I guess that was not the case.

Good luck, please keep us informed. Thank you.

the first chests are in a cave, and the entrance is to the east of your location in the second screenshot. right next to the fork in the road by the buildings.

I could have swore I ran into one like your 3rd set, I know i tried using explosives, nades, etc on it, did you try that? I don't remember my results though.
I know there are a few treasure chests you can get to show on your map, that you can only get with the dlc mission, and even after getting it, they still show up. Have you did the dlc missions?

I might reinstall my game today, and look at those spots for ya, if I have enough time. Plan to also get the new content that comes on today.
