Why We Love It: This unique tidal saltwater pool in Cape Neddick, Maine, embraces natural features for a seamless connection to the sea.
Before You Dive In: Popular in the early 20th century but now prohibited in many municipalities, tidal saltwater pools require diligent maintenance. If constructing one is out of the question, you can achieve the look by incorporating natural stone and native landscaping into an infinity pool.
