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For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us.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

Two pools; the outdoor one closed earlier in the season that advertised; the indoor pool clean and good. Three lanes kept free, apart from youth swim team practice, which also meant a bustling locker room. One can walk here from Barcelona's newest convention center in 20 minutes, but only with patience and a map, as railroads and freeways crisscross the route. Checking into a hotel is easier (and much like) buying a ticket to this pool; I was asked for my passport, but didn't have one and was let in anyway.

What a pleasure to swim in the immaculate, 50-meter, outdoor pool! Weeknight lap swimming in the outdoor pool closed at 7:45, but the indoor pool stays open later. The indoor pool was noisy due to fitness class in a 3rd, smaller pool and swimming lessons for kids in the lanes not set aside for lap swimming.

The changing rooms are large, with many private changing cabanas. Lockers may be secured with either a €2 coin (which is refunded) or your own lock. The women's' facilities include a steam room, a sauna, and an ice room. The showers are private and there are several hair dryers.

The pools are a20-minute walk from the Fira Trade Fair area and hotels.

I rented an Airbnb three blocks from this clean, big, 11-lane pool. €7.40 entry from 10 AM to 7:45 PM. It was plenty busy but not crowded. Bring your ID; a swim cap required but can be purchased at a vending machine on site. It's a nice pool.
