Today we look at the best pool wine glasses, those essential glasses for outdoor and pool-side pursuits.
After much thought (and arduous experimentation) we’ve assembled our top recommendations for the best pool wine glasses available now. Pool glasses are those essential ‘glasses’ that are plastic or stainless steel to make them shatterproof. The last thing you need at your pool is broken glass whether in the water or on the tiles where many party goers are barefoot. Most of our favorites are made from a special type of plastic known as Tritan. This is stronger than acrylic, less likely to scratch and also dishwasher-safe.

Choosing the best pool wine glasses
We considered many aspects of unbreakable glasses including, usability, style and practicality. Our list is a combination of the best of these elements with great value pricing to match.
BubbleWally Floating Wine Glasses (Tritan plastic)
In this set you’ll find a pair of remarkably clear Tritan plastic glasses. Their other benefits include being BPA-free and not imparting your wine with any plasticky taste. Design-wise we appreciate the clever extended lip of the rim which makes it less likely for pool-side splashes to end up in your wine!
Their appearance is a something we also recommend these glasses for. They are close to passing for your regular wine glass and don’t look out of place when you move from the pool to the terrace or even indoors. The diameter of the flat base matches the width of the bowl and gives them good stability too. From experience these glasses do float which is fun but just be careful if you pour a white wine – it may just bob away and be hard to see in the water! (Stick to reds is good advice). Even when nearly filled these glasses continue to float and not tip over, something that other brands fail to do.
The BubbleWally glasses are stylish and have a large 18 oz capacity so you need fewer refills and can spend more time enjoying yourself.
The Beach Glass (Acrylic plastic)
Not ones for average glasses, we love the look and functionality of these distinctive glasses. Made of dishwasher-safe BPA-free, acrylic these are also tough and unlikely to break by accident. They come in a variety of stunning colors as well as clear. Our favorites are the sunrise orange, sea green and pink sunset although the ocean blue comes in close behind. These are usually sold singly but you can pick up double packs and mixed color sets too.
You can’t help but notice the bulge in the stem, this is the Beach Glass’s patented ball design which serves two purposes. The first gives it stability when it floats in your pool and counters small splashes from overturning it. The second is that you can embed it into a sandy beach and the ball holds the glass steady.
We only wish they had more capacity, at 12 oz they are ideal for cocktails and wine but for younger family members they don’t hold a full can of soda.
Vivocci Unbreakable Double Old Fashioned Glasses (Tritan plastic)
Vivocci has a great reputation for excellent quality, great value products. In this six pack you will find elegant, yet robust, shatterproof Tritan whiskey glasses. They sport a thumb indent which is really handy (no pun intended!) to give you a good grip when out at the pool, camping or picnicking. The Tritan material benefits your whiskey having no unpleasant chemicals and no aroma-changing either so you can enjoy your tipple as nature intended. The glass is clear, light and the design exudes confidence and class.
These glasses aren’t intended for floating, rather for making sure you keep yourself safe from breakages pool-side. As such we heartily recommend them for ryes, bourbons and scotches – actually whichever whiskey that’s your personal favorite! As with all Tritan glasses these are dishwasher-safe, and scratch-proof in most situations. They look indistinguishable from regular glasses and can surprise your guests when they expect a heavy glass but find themselves holding a much lighter alternative.
The Vivocci glasses can be etched too, making them an option for a thoughtful gift.
Scandinovia Unbreakable Premium Drinking Glasses (Tritan plastic)
If you’re looking for glasses that resemble tumblers, then look no further. The Scandinovia set boasts six vividly colored Tritan glasses. From transparent purples to pinks and blues these look beautiful. Behind the scenes Scandinovia has rigorously tested their product through 1000 dishwashing cycles until they are confident they still look brand new. In the hand they are light and feel premium quality.
These are practical too after your pool party. Thanks to their textured lower section they can be stacked without any risk of them sticking together. Their smooth, flat base has no lip so they’ll come out of your dishwasher perfectly dry. These Scandinovia glasses have a large 19 oz capacity more than enough for a soda or an evening’s wine.
Comfook Spill Proof Insulated Wine glasses (stainless-steel)
Swapping out plastics for metal, the Comfook wine tumblers have an air of sophistication and cool practicality that will impress your guests. Using food grade 304 stainless steel these double-walled vacuum vessels prevent your drink from warming up in the sun. They are sweat resistant too which stops them getting slippery to hold.
This set includes four colorful glasses: black, blue, red, and rose with shiny finishes. They have an internal gasket and ABS plastic lid with slider ensuring that if you drop or tip it none of your drink will escape. Each comes with a stainless-steel straw and cleaning brush.
One thing to note is that these need to be handwashed to prevent any scratching to the outer surface. We love the colors you get in this set but if you prefer matte finishes, Comfook do these too: a cool blue, lilac, white and candle wax red.
We hope you find our choice of the best pool wine glasses helpful, each has its own amazing character and benefits. Enjoy!
