Water is known to have therapeutic properties. Not only drinking it does wonders to your body, but also a calming dip or swim or even diving deep in a water body can work as a tonic for your mind and body, both. If you are an aquaphile (someone who loves everything related to water), then ditch those swanky infinity pools of the luxurious resorts, and try out the natural pools around the world. The term ‘exotic holiday’ will get an all new and a soul stirring feel to it.

What would you do if you bump into cheap flight tickets to a mediterranean destination? Probably, spend on a classy, luxury resort which has an exotic waterfront dining or accommodation option, and of course, a pool to dive in whenever you feel like, right? Buddy, get off the mainstream aisle, and step into a world of natural wonders with these amazing naturally occurring pools around the world. Honeymooning, anyone?


1. Fingal’s Cave, Scotland

Fingal’s Cave is a sea cave on the island in the Inner Hebrides of Scotland. It is formed by hexagonally jointed basalt pillars inside an antiquated magma stream. This cave is known for its natural acoustics; on account of its size and an arched rooftop, the waves reverberate inside, producing some eerie sounds. You can take the local cruise to reach this passageway. It’s worth the effort.


2. Tat Kuang Si Waterfall, Laos

Clear and perfectly blue-green, the waters of the Tat Kuang Si Waterfall in Luang Prabang, Laos are tempting, particularly in the Laotian warmth. You can either swim at the base or move to the top and parlor in a natural swimming pool between levels of the falls. The Tat Kuang Si Waterfall is situated in a national park along the Mekong River.


3. Dudu Blue Lagoon, Dominican Republic

The Dudu Lagoon is a 100 feet deep, freshwater pool, which is so crystal clear that it shimmers in an azure blue hue. It looks like the fairy pools that we have grown up watching in Disney movies. Also, there are underwater caves in the lagoon, making it one of the most famous scuba diving destinations. So this time, forget pitching your tents around the most spectacular camping destinations around the world, and head to the Dudu Blue Lagoon for your summer holidays. What say?


4. The Dead Sea, Jordan

Bordered by Israel and Jordan, the Dead Sea is one of the saltiest water body on Earth, which makes it almost impossible for anyone to drown in it. So if you are swimming in the Dead Sea, you probably are just floating. It also is known for its therapeutic properties and therefore attracts enthusiasts from far and wide.


5. Marieta Islands, Mexico

Shielded from the interruption of the world outside, the shrouded shoreline of Marieta Islands is only a couple of miles off the beach of Mexico, near Bandera sound. Marieta Islands are archipelagos that were shaped as a consequence of volcanic movement. The islands have remained practically confined from that point onward. It was just as of late that recreational part of the place was found after improvement of a greatly selective marine biological system that makes this place similarly as one of a kind as exciting.

Excited? Who’s stopping you! Plan out, get your best company along, and go ahead to take that plunge in these naturally wonderful pools around the world. Cheers!
