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For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us.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

I went on a Monday at 10:30 AM and had the pool to myself, except for a lifeguard class that took up 3 lanes later on.

The pool is L-shaped with six lanes of 25 meters and another four lanes of 10 meters. The pool is striped and targeted, but the surface is pretty rough. It has lane lines, but any remaining buoys are disintegrating under the Caribbean sun. There are lots of equally sun-soaked kickboards and buoys for use. There were no pace clocks but there were some relics among the toys that may or may not work. The skimmer system needs some major love, and the surroundings are certainly not resort-like. There's no real locker room, just a changing room/bathroom combo, which is a bit rough, but clean.

Now, with all that said, the staff was very friendly and helpful, and the water was clear and clean, so if you don’t want to miss a practice while on a cruise, it's worth the $8 entry fee (which covers access to the whole Y for the day) but keep in mind it’s a $20 taxi each way from the port, so you really need to want to work out to make this pay.
