Important Notice Please Read - CLICK HERE

Swimmers Guide is not connected with any of the more than 20,000+ facilities listed on this site in any way. We cannot tell you the pools’ opening and closing times; we cannot tell you about the availability and cost of swimming lessons; we cannot help you find your children’s lost goggles or bathing suits.

We can and do try to give you reliable information about the pools, their locations, their access policies, and their single-visit or casual swimming prices. Where possible, we include email addresses and hypertext links to the pools’ own official websites, and links to the websites of the clubs and teams that swim there. Look to those resources within each listing for more detailed information.

The data in each listing is under continual review and is revised whenever the site’s editors become aware of a change but, with more than 20,000 listings, a complete, periodic review of every listing takes about three years to complete; in many places, prices will change two or three times before we have a chance to check the pool’s official website again.

For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us. There is an "Edit" button on just about every line of every listing, click on the edit button to tell us what needs to be changed. Please consider checking the listings of the pools you regularly use at home or when traveling, as your knowledge may be helpful to someone else who is unfamiliar with your area and visiting for the first time.

To our English users: For reasons described in the FAQ, county names shown the listings in England are the cities' and towns' historic counties, not necessarily the counties they are assigned to now.

Facility Notes

Senior prices apply to men over 67 and for women over 62.
The pool is a replacement for the original Gordon Pool, that closed and was demolished in 2005. The pool's water is drawn from a source 150 metres underground and is changed daily.
In December, 2017, opening hours were: Sunday 1 - 8 PM; Monday -Thursday 7 AM - 8 PM; Friday 7 AM -6:30 PM; and Saturday 7 AM - 5:30 PM. Current schedules are available on the pool's website HERE, but the layout of the right-to-left Hebrew writing translates clumsily to English (or other left-to-right languages), when using Internet machine translation services.

Facility Reviews

A large salt-water pool in a picturesque setting right on the beach. When I was there, both the 40 and 50 meter sections were partitioned into slow, medium and fast lanes. The water was very clean and a great temperature; courteous swimmers abided by the designated lanes speeds. A locker facility with showers is available nearby for a nominal additional fee. I was advised that it’s only busy before 8 AM. It was a fun to do a lap-swim in salt water. I enjoyed the added buoyancy as a novelty.
In the evening there are often five or more swimmers per lane.

Goggles are a must because of the salty water.
[March, 2014]
You don't get much for the price, although a clean facility and clear water do count for something. The locker rooms have additional fees for the lockers (small cubes) and are a short walk away from the pool through a public thoroughfare (bring footwear and body covering if modest or in chilly weather). The water can be on the cold side and, as mentioned, SALTY. Clean hot showers with good water pressure are back in the locker rooms. In all, a great 50m pool; but expensive (about US$ 20.00).
