I often hear my friends say: “Imagination is a valuable talent, but only if you remain realistic”. These are the words that always come to mind when I think of an infinity pool. Because in an endless swimming pool, fantasy and reality come together and form an inseparable whole. The azure blue water invites all swimmers to dive in and cool off and promises a lot of bathing fun and endless water pleasure. I often let my imagination run wild and imagine myself swimming in an infinity pool far away to the horizon. With this summer heat outside, millions of people dream of swimming in an endless pool just like me. Many of them would certainly like to stare into the distance and admire the unique sight. Because an infinity pool enchants with its indefinite and infinite dimensions. It extends far into the distance, where the border between water and sky merges on the horizon.
The enchanting view extends for miles to the horizon

Do we want to stay on Santorini for a while longer? This is where the Perivolas Hotel is located, a luxurious getaway for romantics.

It is only a short hop away from Oia, the most beautiful place on the most romantic and dramatic island in Greece. Terraced gardens adorn the slope down to the infinity pool, which seems to slide out of the rock edge and flow into the blue horizon. Only the occasional sound of church bells or the whistle of a fisherman interrupts the meditative silence. It’s so easy to stay here all day and watch the lights interplay until the sun sets into the sea.
Let’s leave the island of Santorini and go on to the next Greek paradise – Crete! The best hotels with endless pools are waiting for their guests or just waiting to be discovered by tourists!
