Bondi Beach is one of the most well-known beaches in the world, and for good reason – the white sand and killer waves make it a central attraction for tourists and locals alike in Sydney. Another amazing feature of Bondi Beach is the Bondi Icebergs Pool, which is nestled right along the coast. Water from the Pacific Ocean often splashes into the pool, and swimmers can experience ocean swimming without leaving the pool.
Blue Lagoon, Iceland
With silica-rich blue water that stays at a steamy 102F/39C, the Blue Lagoon is one of Iceland’s most popular sites. The geothermal hot spring is man-made and was formed in 1976.
