Let’s all rejoice, just as it’s starting to get unbearably hot in Dubai: pools are now open.

Over the weekend, the welcomed news was announced per a circular from Dubai Tourism. While there’s still many precautions that need to be taken, it’s great to know we can now enjoy a dip in the pool to cool off in the scorching heat.

With that, here’s eight pool spots that should be on your list to visit in Dubai.
