Infinity edge pools are luxurious, visually captivating, and typically positioned to take advantage of a spectacular view, whether it be mountains, ocean or a forested landscape. We invite you to sit back, relax and take a journey with us through some incredibly designed pools that will take your breath away. These pools that we have featured are an extravagance, that if you are lucky enough to have one, would be fabulous to enjoy during the warm summer months… or if you live somewhere tropical, all year round! Typically designed in a backyard, infinity edge pools will cascade over an edge, generating a visual effect of water that has no boundaries. They emulate a beautiful waterfall, like you would see in nature, expect it is man-made, right in your own backyard. These pools can be very fun to swim in, especially if they are located on top of a high rise or nestled on a mountaintop. We have put together a vast collection of infinity edge pools for you to peruse through to see for yourself just how amazing they are. If you home has some spectacular views and you have not built a swimming pool yet, this type of pool would be perfect for you. Of course you could also just go on a holiday and enjoy a resort that offers such a pool and takes laps in luxury! Enjoy!

i’ve never been a big fan of pools, but with the increasing awareness of water scarcity, i have come to view them very unfavorably. i look at most of these pool photos and ask myself: what’s the point of this? most of these pools seem like little more than testaments to excess and waste. the “pool by the sea” in cancun is absolutely crazy.
