Need travel inspiration? Then let us draw your attention to these incredible infinity pools from around the world…

If you have been in Britain for the last few months, just thinking about the warm touch of the sun on your face might seem like a fabulous dream. But, believe it or not, spring is almost here and it’s time to forget the staycations in foggy London and start thinking about the sunny beaches of Turkey, Seychelles, Vietnam, Egypt, Scotland (yes, really!) and more.

If you still don’t know where the summer will take you, then it might be time to start dreaming about swimming laps in a pool overlooking the jaw dropping rooftops of Santorini or floating above a glimmering Indian Ocean.

So, while you picture your holiday heaven, here is Stylist.co.uk’s list of the world’s best infinity pools.
