Allas Sea Pool in Helsinki was ranked seventh among the best 20 swimming places across the world, reported Cable News Network (CNN).

Few countries "get" outdoor swimming as much as Finland. And Helsinki's Allas Sea Pools are the ideal experience for those looking to dip their toe for the first time, said the CNN report.

Right on the seafront, there are three pools to choose from: one for kids, one heated and one filled with seawater, the last pumped full of clean water from further out to sea.

The adjacent sauna makes it particularly special in the colder months, when swimmers can warm up after an icy dip and enjoy that magical post-swim glow, the report added.

These swimming spots are the ultimate escape for those looking for adventure once the months of being unable to hit the road finally come to an end.

Bryher, Isles of Scilly, England was ranked top in the list followed by Loch An Eilein, Scotland, Pont du Gard, France, Inkaterra Machu Picchu Pueblo Hotel, Peru, Bajos del Toro Cloud Forest, Costa Rica, Voidomatis Springs, Vikos Gorge, Greece, Allas Sea Pools, Helsinki, Finland, River Aare, Bern, Switzerland, Frenchman's Hole, Maine, USA, The Forty Foot, Dublin, Ireland, Kitsilano Pool, Vancouver, Canada, Havnebadet, Aarhus, Denmark, Seljavallalaug, Iceland, Giles Baths, Coogee Beach, Australia, Lake Bohinj, Slovenia, Vatternstranden, Jonkoping, Sweden, Laghetti D'Avola, Syracuse, Sicily, Akigawa River, Japan and Dalebrook Tidal Pool, Cape Town, South Africa.
