19 best Infinity Pools Your Bucket List is missing (Photo inside)

What is in your bucket list? Consider plunging in these infinity pools you still can visit before they are gone forever!

One of the top post in my blog is these beautiful swimming pools at night photo taken around the world. While my interest is on home decor, I love swimming and I teach my kids to swim since the age of 3. With this love, I like to research for more beautiful swimming pool. This post is about infinity pools that are beautifully designed around the world that most likely your bucket list is missing big time!

But first, what is infinity pool. Well, infinity pool or endless pool is a swimming pool where water flows at one of the edge producing a visual effect of water with no boundary (see wikipedia for info). In order to create this type of effect, it is important the pool is created facing a large space such as open sea or the sky.

why is it called infinity pool? Well, that is because of appearance that it gives to the swimmer. The pool itself is usually located at an edge of the building or facing a large space with no obstructive view. Thus the name infinity pool.

1- Infinity Pool Miami

Miami is an international hub located at southeastern tip of America. It has beautiful beaches but nothing beats these endless pool in Miami. This infinity pool is located at the roof top of W Miami Hotel (previously known as Viceroy hotel). Ideally located with views of Biscayne Bay and the Miami River, this W Miami is perfect for business or leisure travelers.

3- Infinity Edge Pool Marina Bay Sands Resort

I am amazed with the endless swimming pool located on top of the “Ship” in Singapore. The Marina bay sands infinity pool entrance (or the “ship”) roof top is 20 Singapore dollar for an adult. However, this entrance fee allows you to access the roof top’s bar and not the access to the pool itself. There is no way to swim in one of the best infinity pool in Asia without having to pay hefty price for a night stay. However, its view, especially during the night is just as awesome.


Located 57 flights up and overlooking Singapore’s bustling financial district, the endless pool at the Sands is nothing short of astounding.Of course, as a matter of fact, there is no death being recorded in infinity pool in the “ship” roof top pool.

Take a look at these photos of the Marina bay sands resort’s infinity pool:

Can you fall off infinity pool? that is the question my boy asked me when viewing this no edge swimming pool overlooking lucern lake in Switzerland. Well, it is quite hilarious to be asked this question, really. Well the answer is: Yes, you can fall off but there is always a catch all system next to the pool, so you wont be falling down all the way. It is what I understand from the infinity pool design anyway.
