These three pools that touch the ocean are guaranteed to provide an unforgettable aquatic experience whatever your tastes.

For those who love a challenge: Bondi Icebergs (Australia)

What sets Bondi Icebergs apart is more than just the pool’s spectacular location next to Bondi Beach in Sydney. Founded in 1929, the swimming club and its time-honoured traditions have become a city institution over the years. Applicants must pass a five-year test period before becoming permanent members, swimming at the pool at least three Sundays a month during winter.

The water temperature averages 16 degrees Celsius in the coldest months of year and can dip significantly lower in windy conditions or when strong waves break over the pool.


For those seeking serenity: Reethi Rah (Maldives)

The ultra-luxurious One&Only Reethi Rah complex is located in the Maldives, an archipelago in the Indian Ocean. This resort boasts 12 white sand beaches and 40 swimming pools, including Serenity, a spectacular 30-metre-long pool that extends into a quiet lagoon. Bathers can unwind in a jacuzzi or lay on one of the stone beds built at the end of this adults-only pools.


For those who want to be close to nature: Cura di Tortuga (Aruba)

Cura di Tortuga (also known as “Conchi”) is a spectacular natural pool located on the island of Aruba. Part of the charm of this natural space lies in its isolation: the only way to reach it is via a very steep road by jeep, on horseback or on foot. This secluded natural pool is formed by volcanic rocks and is one of the Caribbean’s most photographed spots.
