The Beauty of the Swim-up Bar

four-seasons-resort-maui

Those travelers who have experienced the joy of a swim-up bar will tell you, sometimes having your drink all the way over at that lounger beside the pool just won’t cut it. It’s way to far away. What’s the solution? Have it IN the pool. Think about it: you won’t burn your feet at the swim-up bar and the guacamole you just ordered will last a lot longer in the shade. Plus, while solitude can be amazing, it’s fun to meet other travelers and get to know your bartender.

 

From the classic Caribbean locale to mountain rainforest views and even a hip New York City scene, check out these 10 swim up bars you’ll wish you were at right now (click on the image to visit the hotel’s page on TripAdvisor):
