Fancy taking a dip in the world’s highest pool? Dubai sets another record


Dubai has done it again! The city is already home to some of the world’s most iconic buildings and attractions, including The Burj Al Arab, the Palm Jumeirah and the World Islands. The city now claims another entry in the Guinness World Records with the world’s highest infinity pool, situated on the 77th floor of the Address Beach Resort.

Guinness World Record splash

The gigantic infinity pool has been entered into the Guinness World Records as the world’s highest pool.

The pool is nearly 95m in length and 16.5m in width, making it nearly double the size of an Olympic-sized swimming pool.  Its height is almost nine-tenths the height of the Eiffel Tower.

A pool with a view

The Address Beach Resort’s infinity pool with the most spectacular aerial vistas is located 294m above the ground, offering views of other iconic buildings in Dubai, including another record holder, the Ain Dubai Ferris Wheel which is officially the world’s tallest ferris wheel.

Access to this pool is reserved for those over 21 years of age.  

A swim in the world’s highest pool will not be possible for most South Africans just yet as the United Arab Emirates (UAE) has closed its borders to South Africans over safety concerns regarding the 501Y.V2 strain of the coronavirus which is prevalent in South Africa. Protection Status
