  1. The San Alfonso del Mar Resort Pool, Chile
    This pool is so huge that it holds the Guinness World Record for the largest pool in the world. It covers an area of 20 acres and holds an astounding 66 million gallons of water! It is 1,000 yards long and 115 feet deep. You can swim, kayak, or even scuba dive in this pool. It cost $1.5 billion to build and and estimated $4 million per year to maintain.
  2. The Nemo 33 Pool, Belgium
    This pool is purported to b the deepest indoor pool in the world with a depth of 113 feet. It has several underwater caves and platforms for divers to explore. It also has a transparent tunnel that allows visitors to walk through the pool and see the divers in action. The water is kept at a constant temperature of 86°F, so no wetsuits are needed, even in the months of winter.
  3. The Marina Bay Sands Infinity Pool, Singapore
    This pool is located on the 57th floor of the Marina Bay Sands hotel, offering a stunning view of the city skyline. It is the world’s largest rooftop infinity pool, stretching 492 feet across the edge of the building. It gives the illusion of swimming in the sky, as the water seems to merge with the horizon.
  4. The Hanging Gardens of Bali Pool, Indonesia
    This pool is nestled in the lush rainforest of Bali, surrounded by exotic plants and flowers. It is a two-tiered pool that cascades down a stone wall, creating a waterfall effect. It overlooks the Ayung River and offers a serene and tranquil experience for guests.
  5. The Golden Nugget Pool, Las Vegas
    This pool is one of the most unique pools in Las Vegas, as it features a 200,000-gallon shark tank in the center. Guests can swim around the tank or slide through it in a transparent tube. They can also enjoy a close-up view of the sharks and other marine life from an observation deck.
  6. The Devil’s Pool, Zambia
    This pool is not for the faint of heart, as it is located at the edge of Victoria Falls, one of the largest waterfalls in the world. It is a natural pool that forms during the dry season, when the water level drops and a rock barrier prevents it from flowing over the edge. Adventurous swimmers can dip into the pool and peer over the edge, feeling the spray of the falls.
  7. The Hearst Castle Pools, California
    These pools are part of the lavish estate of William Randolph Hearst, a famous newspaper magnate and art collector. The estate has two pools: the Neptune Pool and the Roman Pool. The Neptune Pool is an outdoor pool that features marble statues, fountains, and columns inspired by ancient Greece and Rome. The Roman Pool is an indoor pool that resembles a Roman bathhouse, with mosaic tiles, gold accents, and skylights.
  8. The Library Pool, Thailand
    This pool is part of The Library hotel, a chic and minimalist resort on Koh Samui island. The pool stands out for its striking red color, which is created by a combination of red tiles and LED lights. The pool contrasts with the white sand and blue sea, creating a stunning visual effect.
  9. The Bondi Icebergs Pool, Australia
    This pool is one of the most iconic pools in Australia, as it is situated on the edge of Bondi Beach, one of the most popular beaches in Sydney. The pool is open to the public and is filled with saltwater from the ocean. It is also exposed to the waves, which sometimes crash over the pool walls and create a splash.
  10. The Crocosaurus Cove Pool, Australia
    This pool is not for everyone, as it involves swimming with crocodiles. Yes, you read that right. Crocosaurus Cove is a wildlife park in Darwin that allows visitors to enter a glass cage and be lowered into a pool with some of the largest saltwater crocodiles in captivity. The cage has 360-degree views of the crocs and their teeth.
