When it comes to the biggest, the first and the best, Dubai is very much the first thought that comes to mind. The beautiful innovative city is home to the world’s tallest skyscraper, the world’s biggest mall and now, the first-ever floating swimming pool.
The stunning floating pool is 20 metres long, 10 metres wide and 1.2 metres deep. It lies 50 metres offshore the Arabian Gulf, and gives visitors the choice of either taking a dip in the freshwater pool or the salt sea water.
The pool is an extension of Breeze Beach Grill at Club Vista Mare, which is a cosy outdoor bar that serves up a variety of Caribbean-styled seafood dishes and drinks.
So far, it’s the only one of its kind and has an extensive deck area with sunbeds that can seat up to 75 people. At night, the pool transforms into a private venue that's perfect for all your pool party needs.
The entry fee is priced at Dhs200, half of that can be redeemed on food and drinks. Nice.
