When you go on a luxury holiday you expect the very best; the best food, the best room and undoubtedly an amazing pool to relax in. But some things man just can’t do quite so well as mother nature.
So if you want a truly sublime and out of this world swimming experience, check out these 5 natural swimming locations.
The Homestead Crater
This almost underground crater was created 10,000 years ago. The opening in the roof allows the sunlight to stream in with an eerie glow and the water is naturally heated underground.
The Pools of Pamukkale
This natural wonder is truly astonishing to behold. The site is made up of a series of pools forming a terrace on a mountain side. Over thousands of years water high in minerals has flowed down the mountain and built dozens of crystalline pools at the same time. They aren’t really big enough to swim in, but the minerals do wonders for your skin.
The Fairy Pools
On the isle of sky, the Fairy pools aren’t always that warm, but it is worth taking a trip in summer time to marvel at the beautiful blue waters and if you’re brave taking a dip. It’s very refreshing.
The Blue Lagoon
Iceland is known for its geothermal energy and the Blue Lagoon is the best way to enjoy the benefits. The large natural pool is naturally heated to around 98 Fahrenheit and many people say it has healing properties. Either way it is very luxurious.
The Devil’s Pool
Finally, in Africa at the Victoria Falls we find the most surprising and perhaps terrifying pool of all. The Devil’s Pool is a natural infinity pool on the edge of the falls which is only visible during the dry season. Despite its position it is perfectly safe to swim in and the view is stunning.
If you are brave you can even peer over the edge of the infinity pool for an unparalleled view of the water cascading down the falls and into the river below.
All of these pools are stunning and wonderful in completely different ways, from the peaceful and serene to the down right bizarre. Wherever you go in the world there will likely be such wonders to behold, so whilst you are relaxing in your hotel pool, remember how much natural wonder there is still to be explored.
