On postcards, displayed in travel agency’s windows, in catalogues and obviously on social media: for over half a century infinity pools in Santorini are driving crazy tourists from all over the world. Why? Well, it’s easy to answer the question: they are beautiful, panoramic and relaxing.
Just think about a breath taking view, add a pool with the visual effect of water with no boundary, the uniqueness of lovely small white houses, an astonishing sunset and a drink: you’re just found the recipe for true happiness.
But are there infinity pools and why are they so famous in Santorini? As you can see from the pictures, these special pools often arise anchored to hillsides, dominating larger water bodies, the edge of which is positioned at a lower water level than the rest of the pool. Such peculiar structure is designed to produce the visual effect of water with no boundary.
It doesn’t surprise that these pools are so famous in Santorini, where most resorts, estates, and luxurious hotels feature this new trend as their distinctive characteristic.
