France has more than 3.2 million pools according to the latest figures – and the number is increasing each year. We all love to enjoy a dip in the pool, especially on a hot and sunny day.
Across the world of course, pools are also extremely popular; so we thought we would share some inspirational and interesting facts about amazing pools across the globe.
- The world’s deepest pool
Dubai has the deepest swimming pool on the planet, opening in 2021. The Deep Dive Dubai pool is complete with a “sunken city” for divers to explore. Filling the pool is no small task… it contains 14.6 million litres of fresh water – equivalent to six Olympic-size swimming pools. You can also swim down to the depths accompanied by lights and ambient music, divers can play table football and other games at the bottom….
- Hotel high rise swimming in Asia
If you are not scared of heights, then a swim in the glass-bottomed portion of the pool at the Hotel Indigo Hong Kong could be just for you. The pool hangs off the side of the high-rise building overlooking the district of Wan Chai, an area on the northern shore of Hong Kong.
- The world’s largest man-made lagoon
This award goes to the Citystars Sharm El Sheikh Hotel in Egypt. The massive pool, which opened in 2015, covers 97,000 square meters.
- One of the world’s oldest functioning pools
Bravo, France…! The Piscine Nakache was built over 90 years ago in 1930, based near Toulouse. The pool, which is open to the public, is on an island in the middle of the river Garonne. There are saunas too.
