San Diego Luxury Swimming Pools
California is home to year-round summertime weather in some areas, as well as beach-like conditions that will make you feel like you’re on a tropical vacation. Here are a few of San Diego’s most exquisite pools—they’re especially inviting, and will make both locals and those traveling to the city want to stay a little longer.
This pool in the Coronado area (shown above) is 6.5 feet deep and has a salt water generator. The crystal blue pool is filled with 12,000 gallons of water and is located on the San Diego bay. The tide rises nightly in the area, which means the shell of the pool has to be constructed in a day. It took 22 construction workers until midnight, at the lowest tide f the month, to successfully install the pool.
When sitting out on the pool deck, you can even hear the crack of a baseball player making a hit at the nearby Petco Park. The $16 million property the pool is built on is also eco-friendly and has a LEED Gold Certification. The leftover solar energy from the house by the pool helps to heat the water, making the pool ideal for evening and early morning swimming.
This chic Olympic-style pool, located in La Jolla, is six feet deep and over 70 feet long. There’s a rim-flow edge to make the pool even more appealing, and the glass tile in a variety of blue and gold shades at the bottom gives the structure an exotic feel. The hues of the pool tiles also match impeccably with the pool deck, which is made of Halila limestone. The rare rocks come from a quarry in Jerusalem.
This pool also features an Aquamatic-designed automatic pool cover, which retains heat and reduces the need to use chemicals to clean the pool. The cover is even stored inside the pool, and emerges through the water!
Del Mar is also home to breathtaking pools, like this 9-foot deep pool that is surrounded by nearly 180 tons of large rocks to give it a natural feel. The pool is solar-heated, and even has a spa at the very top. Kids will enjoy this pool due to its 75-foot water slide, which gives the pool a feel of a large-scale water park. Swimmers can also enjoy nature by viewing the 2000-gallon koi pond that is built into the pool. The rope swing that lets kids swing into the pool is connected to a ficus tree was transported in to further accentuate the landscape. This creative and eye-catching pool was built with a underwater grotto that kids can swim through, which gives the feel of being in an ocean.
The owners of this pool had it constructed even before they built their home. Since they have six children, they wanted to ensure that there was a fun and interactive place for them to hang out while the house was being built. Several trees and rock structures are constructed all around the pool to make the area look like it’s in the middle of a tropical paradise.
