First swim at the longest pool in Polynesia

Arriving at Tahiti, and staying at my friend's place, in the amazing Carlton Plage residence, the most exclusive residence on Tahiti's dream island, right next to the best part of Tahiti's lagoon, from where sunsets on Moorea's island are visible, and which has a private access to the best beach in Tahiti, the longest swimming pool in Polynesia surely was the best asset of the residence.

With 180meters long, or 590feet long, it is the longest swimming pool in Polynesia, and it is impossible to get tired of swimming in that amazing pool.

For my first day in Tahiti, still wearing my first ever real flower necklace, I had a coffee next to the pool, wondering how much can I swim...

When I go to swim, even living in hotels with swimming pools, they were at best about 10 meters long, and I rarely swam more than a few hundred meters in one session.

One session of my life's longest swim, is only one full length of that swimming pool... hard to imagine! I started my first day with one round trip swimming in the pool, which makes 360meters, in one swim... I never thought I'd do that!

How to swim effortlessly

However, swimming a round trip, 360 meters, in the longest swimming pool in Polynesia, is pretty easy... because it is impossible to get bored, with the beautiful scenery.

How to swim effortlessly? Go to a swimming pool like this one, where it is actually possible to swim with a scenery.

On one end of the swimming pool, a magnificient view on Tahiti's mountains.

On the other end of the longest swimming pool in Polonesia, the lagoon of Tahiti, and some of the world's most beautiful sunsets over the Pacific ocean on Moorea.


Along the 180 meters long of the swimming pool... an amazing scenery, with several water fountains that help keeping the water in the pool fresh, many trees and in general a luxurious vegetation along the pool, with many birds and sometimes mosquitoes flying around.

Swimming effortlessly is possible in a pool long enough, with surroundings interesting enough, to make it interesting.

At the end of my stay at the Carlton Plage residence, I was swimming 5km a day... probably more in one day, everyday, that I have been swimming my whole life, while literraly living in hotels with pools for years, and going to swim nearly everyday.

Swim at night under the stars

Another great possibility of staying at an exclusive residence with private pool, is the possibility to swim anytime, including at night - of course providing that the noise level is kept to a minimum.

Swimming under the stars, without having to worry about stuff left on the side, or possible things in the water, is amazing.

From that side of the world, on a remote island, with no external light pollution, the view at night is simply amazing.

It is possible to lay down in the water, have a look at the sky, and see the milky way in its splendid entirety, enlightened by thousands of stars all around.

One of the most beautiful spectacle I had ever seen, which unfortunately couldn't be captured with a standard camera...
