With summer here in full swing, most people are always looking for ways to cool off from the heat. Although summer is the favorite season for a lot of us, that doesn’t mean we enjoy sweating to death. While there are lots of ways to beat the heat, nothing has proven to be as tried and true as swimming. Taking a dip in the pool is always a guaranteed way to cool down. Well, why not do it in a sky pool? Even if you’re not particular into pool design, you’ve probably noticed that over the last several years, pools have become more stylish than ever. Now much more than big holes filled with water, pools have become just as fun to look at as they are to swim in. No type of pool has pulled this off quite like the sky pool. True to name, sky pools boast an elevated design that puts them at the highest — or one of the highest — points of a structure. Some of these pools have infinity designs, and some even have glass bottoms. Combining a little bit of adventure with the relaxation of swimming, sky pools are now popping up at buildings, hotels, and resorts all over the world. Take a look at 10 of the most unbelievable sky pool designs.
