Pools!

Can you believe we're only one day away from September?! This summer flew by. To keep the summery mood going, here are 8 incredible pools around the world…Have you been to any? Which one would you want to dip into?

From top: Berlin, Victoria Falls on the border between Zambia and Zimbabwe (see more insane photos here), Singapore, Portugal, Chile, Sydney, Utah and Bali.

Those pools are cool...the second one looks kinda scary like you can just fall off a cliff or something. Nice post I'd rather be relaxing there than at home. RoRos World

Wini said...

The one from Victoria Falls is terrifying! I'm afraid of heights and open water; it would be a nightmare for me! I might be able to handle the last one though..

spark said...

Great post! I kind of think I'm not that well traveled but I was surprised to realise that I've been to three of these pools, Bondi, Singapore and Bali. (I live in Australia). We used to have a children's pool right on the beach (http://www.abc.net.au/wa/stories/s1255730.htm) but it stopped being filled in the late 90s. I loved it. You can't beat the ocean but there is something poetical about pools. Something about how mankind strives to recreate the ocean, fails but creates something else entirely beautiful!

I can't believe the summer is basically over. The photos of the pools definitely make me want to go for a swim. =)

Whoa. This world is so crazy awesome.

Chelsea said...

Whoa!! That one overlooking the falls is insane. I want to go to them all. I've swam, a couple times, in the Utah one- it is beautiful!

Keri said...

I've been to the one in Singapore...Marina Bay Sands. Very cool!

The summer has definitely gone too quickly. I've gone swimming a grand total of once. :-( Any of those pools looks amazing, but I think I'd be too scared to go in the ones in Victoria Falls or Bali!

Alexis said...

AMAZING! I'd take a trip to any of those! Yes, sadly summer has gone way too fast. And I was fortunate enough to travel to Ghana, Nigeria, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, and Austria this summer!! I need more time! (and money)

Jeneric Generation said...

Victoria Falls? Nooo...nooooooooooo. I would rather not be so close to death while swimming. The other ones are STUNNING (and perfectly harmless), however. Amazing.

Anela said...

My husband and I went swimming in one at Manly Beach this summer! It was surprisingly warm(ish). The water was calm and perfectly salty.

Amanda said...

Wow! These are so incredible! I think the second one would give me a heart attack though.

Hope said...

Second-to-last. But in these last few weeks of summer I'm probably equally happy filling up the baby pool & letting my two little ones splash around while I sit in it with them! (A cold beer doesn't hurt, either ;)

ale norris said...

i live in texas which means we still have about 2 months left of summery heat. i don't know if that's good or bad...

Where on earth is that pool in Berlin?! I live here and I've never even heard of it!

I've been to Vic Falls. That is not a real swimming pool though ... they are swimming dangerously close to the edge. We saw others doing this when we were there. I would never bring kids that close!

Julianna Marie said...

I'm going to Victoria Falls this November, so excited!

lindarfar said...

The coolest "pool" I ever swam in was in the Yucatan, Mexico. The entire area is filled with cenotes, openings in the ground revealing the groundwater below. It was amazing! Where sunlight pierces the water, there are beautiful ecosystems teeming with life. You couldn't tell it from the surface, but in places, especially away from the sunlight, the water was really deep. It disappeared into darkness and was very spooky.

Haha, long comment, but I am still reeling from the experience. It was indescribable.

Mona peacecabona said...

This is right in my field. All of these are amazing. I live in norway and swim almost daily (during the summer) at an outdoor pool right on the fjord (nordnessjobad-bergen norway). So just a tip if you`re in Bergen, Norway check out the pool on the fjord.
It`d be hard to choose between these, but my top choice would be Bali and Victoria falls. Love the idea of feeling like you`re at the end of the world. And then Utah and chile would also be amazing!!!

NJB520 said...

I've been to the one in Portillo, Chile...two summers ago on a ski trip! It was truly amazing and some of the best skiing of my life!

Stephanie Ko said...

Oh wow, the one on the falls.. terrifying!

If I could add one more, a few summers ago I visited Miette Hot Springs in Jasper, Alberta, Canada.. it was breathtaking!

Kirsten said...

Those are incredible pools!!!
I want to visit some of them someday!
How incredible.

P.S. the pool in Berlin seems the most attainable at the moment.

Kristín Jóna Kristjónsdóttir said...

Awesome pools!
Iceland has a lot of excellent pools and spas, the most famous being the Blue Lagoon. You should check out the Hofsós swimming pool and Seljavallalaug :)

Sarah Jane said...

these are all pretty swank, but that one that looks like inside a cave would be my first choice.

Caroline, No. said...

Amazing! I've been to the one in Berlin. I'd like to go to the others now please!

Trunkation said...

Vic Falls actually made me pretty sad. Apparently animals venture too close to the edge and fall over. Our guide had told us that it has happened to many elephants - made me so sad.

Elevenses said...

Iceland has some amazing pools, too :)

Katy said...

Been to the one in Portillo Chile last summer..winter there. I have some of the most amazing photos ever taken in that exact spot..

Jen from Meet the Camerons said...

holy moly, I'm in love. Thanks for posting the awesome pix!

H said...

Come to Singapore! The Infinity Pool at Marina Bay Sands is amaaaaazing ;)

amiechristo said...

If I could, I'd definitely hit up all of them!

Ali said...

These are all so cool. I certified to scuba dive at the one in Utah. It was pretty awesome.

Allison McGregor said...

These pool photos are awesome!

I live in Sydney, so I've been to the one there. I would LOVE to go to these others, though!!

McKenzie said...

Ah, wow, how amazing! I must go to some places like this one day! xx

Where's that pool in Portugal? I'm portuguese and I dont know where that is...

JING said...

Been to the one at Bali. It's great!

HAYLEY OGGEL said...

Seriously? The one in Portugal looks amazing. Is it a hot spring? Where is it? We're moving to Cambridge soon and will definitely need to hit that pool. Please share the location!

Swimming in Devils Pool on the edge of Victoria Falls in Zambia was the single-most thrilling experience of my entire life. If every the opportunity presents itself, jump (literally). You won't regret it.

Lindy Phippen Smith said...

I've been to the Utah one. I did my scuba certification there. It's actually way way warm.

My best friend and I studied abroad in South Africa during college and happened to be at Victoria Falls during September. We had a BLAST swimming in Devil's Pool, and it wasn't nearly as scary as it should have been to sit on the edge of Victoria Falls! What was scarier was our parents' reactions when we told them about it!

Lindas!

Dianne Grover said...

Wow! The second pool is so “defying gravity”! Since I enjoy thrills and challenges, I would definitely love to plunge into that naturally made pool. These days, all I see are innovative designs. For me though, nothing will beat nature’s beauty. The photos shown in this blogs will not only inspire home owners but pool services Desert Hot Springs as well to come up with similar ideas like the ones you have shown here. Great post!

Cathy said...

Whoaaa! These pools are astonishing! I just wanted to jump and take a swim immediately after seeing these photos. The one I would love to dip into is the amazing pool on the last photo. Aside from the fact that its shape is unique, I love its green and refreshing surroundings. Every special occasion would be fun to celebrate with in a place like this.

You are working all day long and continue to work you will surely get stress on your body as well as on mind. But it's also necessary to give body the rest for while. Some people try to have some body massage at home or at Spa to have some relaxation.I always have some head massage from the Spa near by home as they have experts that use various spa parts to make me fit and healthy.
