1. The Eddy

There’s really nothing else like the pool deck at the Eddy. With a breeze coming off the harbor and a picture-perfect view of the skyline, cooling off never felt so, well…cool. 10 New Street, East Boston, eddyliving.com.

2. Ink Block

The edgy, upscale units at Ink Block are a treat for the eyes, and the complex’s roof terrace is no different. A shining blue pool is surrounded by sleek chaise lounges on a deck, and below, there’s a grassy area for lawn games. 300 Harrison Avenue, Boston, inkblockboston.com.

3. The Benjamin

The Benjamin’s “Vista Sundeck” offers a panoramic look at Seaport Boulevard and downtown Boston. After a dip in the pool, residents can whip up a meal using the deck’s outdoor grills, then kick back under the pergola. 25 Northern Avenue, Boston, thebenjaminseaport.com.

4. Troy Boston

The luxe pool area at the South End’s Troy Boston has a front and center view to artist Ronnie Deziel’s killer whale mural. It also boasts a cabana deck with couches and plenty of space for sunbathing. 55 Traveler Street, Boston, troyboston.com.

5. The Kensington

The spacious “sky deck” atop the Kensington has everything you could ever want in an outdoor space: a fireplace, a TV, a huge patio, a grilling area, and a lovely lap pool. Best of all? You can float in the pool while gazing up at downtown’s skyscrapers. 665 Washington Street, Boston, kensingtonboston.com.
