Here are the top 08most craziest pools in the world that you need to go swimming in from one in a waterfall to the deepest pool ever!
That is not just a waterfall. It’s a pool too. A pool for crazy people. It’s at the edge of Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe. The pool is located at the top of the waterfall at a little over 400 feet. Sound dangerous? It is. It’s why this particular pool has become a popular destination for adrenaline junkies. The pool is a natural rock pool that lets you get almost right up to the edge of the waterfall without falling over. The pool can only be used in September and December though for safety reasons. The fear factor of the pool is more intense because there is no noticeable ledge to the pool. There is a rock that protects the swimmers from tumbling over, though.
- The Hanging Gardens
Ever wanted to feel like you’re going to fall into the forest? Then the Ubud Hanging Gardens Hotel in Bali, Indonesia is for you. This infinity pool is famous for its amazing views. You will appear to float over the forest and hotel room is equipped with its own pool. Hope you’re not afraid of heights.
- The Homestead Crater
The homestead crater is a spring hiding in a 55 feet tall crater in Midway, Utah. It’s a limestone cave that was naturally hollowed out by nature and the water inside runs at about 90 degrees. Since the location has become a popular tourist spot they have hollowed out a tunnel to make the water in the crater more accessible. They also allow scuba diving, snorkeling, and even paddleboard yoga classes. This pool is the only location in the continental united states that has warm water and it has become a favorite for divers because of that. The nearby Homestead Resort does admission and tours.
- Grand Wailea
The Grand Wailea hotel in Hawaii is known for its pools. It’s hard to compete when a beautiful ocean is just steps away from your hotel room but, the Grand Wailea delivers. The actually feature two pools. One is a 4,850 so foot pool which would be impressive enough for any other hotel but, the Grand Wailea’s main draw is its Wailea Canyon Activity Pool. This mammoth of a pool actually has six different floors, each equipped with its own pool. The Canyon Activity Pool is 2000 feet long, 25700 square feet and it has a whopping 770,000 gallons contained. One of the coolest things about this pool is the hotel’s “water elevator”. The water elevator can be used to take people from floor to floor of the pool. The hotel’s spa is actually award winning. It made the “Top Ten Spas in the US” list made by Travel and Leisure magazine.
- Blue Lagoon Geothermal Spa
The presence of this Lagoon was actually caused by the building of a geothermal power plant nearby in Iceland. The plant was put in in the mid-1970s to early 1980s. The pool was built when it became common for people to bathe in the nearby. The effects that the pool water had on skin was discovered early on. The one-two punch of the mineral rich water and the mud at the bottom of the lagoon causes a considerable difference in the condition of people who suffer from skin diseases, most notably psoriasis. The owners of the pool have since capitalized on this to make one of the foremost spas in the world. The owners of the pool also try to have a strong focus on the environment because of the proximity of the geothermal plant. They want to promote uses of clean energy.
- Giola Lagoon
This natural pool is located on the Greek Island of Thassos. While the pool isn’t the easiest thing to get to the unbelievable view and thrill of swimming in it are well worth it. It overlooks the Aegean sea and the temperature of the lagoon is actually warmer than the sea itself so that swimming in it is much more pleasant. Not much is really known about this pool because of its general remoteness and its difficulty to reach.
- The Library Pool
The Library resort is located in Thailand and one of its main features is this eerily pool. It’s called the Red Pool and don’t worry it’s not blood. It’s not even dyed either. The makers of the pool employed a clever optical illusion to create their signature pool. The color is caused by the combined reflection of the red, orange and yellow tile at the bottom of the pool. So you won’t look like Carrie on prom night when rising from this natural oddity.
- The San Alfonso del Mar Seawater Pool
Located in Algarrobo, Chile this pool is the second largest in the world. It lost the title of the largest to CityStars pool in Egypt but, it’s okay because they are built by the same people. It sits on 20 acres of land and it is actually made of salt water. 66 million gallons of it to be exact. The water is taken from the pacific ocean and then treated before being added to the pool. The pool took a whopping 2 billion to make and the annual upkeep for the location is 4 million.
