Piscina Comunale di Taormina [Closed - Temporarily?]

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For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us.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.

A regular contributor to the site writes:
"Since you only list pools, I’ll mention purely for the sake of conversation that Spiaggia Isola Bella (Beautiful Island Beach), easily reached on foot or by bus (€2 - €3 round trip) from hideously expensive Taormina, is one of the best places I’ve ever been swimming. Sure, there are tedious floats for the private beaches, but the surroundings are extremely beautiful, the water is warm even in late September, and it’s easy to boost a shower from at least one of the €10 "beach clubs." Euro notes are seawater proof, so I put them and my room keys into a mesh bag and tied them in with the drawstring of my trunks.

"You probably won’t start your beach annex site for this beach, but if you ever come to Sicily, I want you to know about it, so you won’t go in ignorance to the Taormina pool that I have not even bothered to investigate."

NOTE: The pool has been closed since 2016. It is not clear why the pool is closed (there have been disputes with regional government bodies about financing, roof damages [which have been repaired], and a contract dispute with the company that managed it for the city [which the city finally won], but we haven't been able to figure out what's holding up its reopening. And that makes it difficult to forecast when, if ever, the pool will reopen. [August, 2019]

Facility Reviews

The water was great (salt) and the folks very nice.
Access to this pool is along steep, winding, narrow roads. The pool is a bit old and tired, however, the water quality is good and the staff very welcoming.
