AN infinity pool in Dubai has won the Guinness World Record for highest in the world – and isn't for the faint-hearted.
Located 965ft above ground, the outdoor rooftop pool is on the 77th floor of the Address Beach Resort in Dubai.
The hotel opened in December, with the pool receiving the accolade for "Highest Outdoor Infinity pool in a Building" earlier this month.
With a surface area of 6,027sqft, the 75m long swimming pool also has a "wet" sun bed area and amazing views of the city.
Swimmers will be able to spot thePalm Jumeirah, The World Islands and the Burj Al Arab from the rooftop too.
You can only visit if staying at the hotel, but non-guests can head to the Zeta Seventy Seven rooftop restaurant next to it.
Serving Asian cuisine, the views are just as amazing from the dining area.

While a trip to Dubai is off the cards for now, it is hoped they may resume in time for the summer when the UK lockdown restrictions are lifted.
It also isn't the only impressive rooftop pool – in 2019, a rooftop infinity swimming pool with a 360-degree view of London built on top of a skyscraper in London was proposed.
The plans revealed a heart-stopping design with four transparent walls and a clear bottom on top of 55-storey building.
