Growing up, most children quickly pick up on the age-old, unwritten rule of summer: one should always be nice to friends with pools. Well, it’s true isn’t it?! Think back to all those balmy, carefree afternoons and long summer evenings spent by the pool with your friends. Not much could tear us away from the water and the good times.
Water does the body good and nothing beats the summer heat like a quick dip in a refreshing pool. Time spent in, or next to, the pool eases the mind, soothes the soul and gives us a healthy measure of vitamin D to boot. So if you don’t have access to a daily dose of vitamin ‘sea’, then go for the next best thing and soak up the glorious sunshine next to a picturesque pool.
We’ve taken our own childhood advice and continue to make friends with some of the best pool owners in the world. Here are 20 of the world’s best pools with a view… relax, soak up the remarkable, bucket list scenery and let your troubles float away.
