Important Notice Please Read

Swimmers Guide is not connected with any of the facilities listed on this site in any way. We cannot tell you the pools’ opening and closing times or when Senior Aerobics classes are held; we cannot tell you about the availability or cost of swimming lessons; we cannot get you discounted admission to swim at any of them; and 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 admission policies, and their single-visit or casual swimming prices. Where possible, we include hypertext links to the pools’ own official websites and Facebook pages, clickable email addresses, 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 the site is under continual review and is revised whenever the site’s editor becomes aware of a change, but, with more than 20,000 listings, a complete, periodic review of every listing takes about seven years to complete; in many places, prices will change four or five 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For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us.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. (No, it's not a place for you to ask us questions. What we have in each listing is the latest news we have.)

Also, 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 the area and visiting for the first time. Just go to the Add a Pool section of the site, read the first page, then fill out the questionnaire.

Facility Reviews

The entry procedure for a first visit is bureaucratic and tedious; bring a driver license or passport and emergency contact information. Bikinis are not permitted and a short swim test (swim 25m) is required. The pool was fine, though crowded around 5 or 6 PM. There was only one lane available for lap swimming with 3 or 4 people in the lane, all going different speeds; I had to pass people quite a lot. Bring a towel. My usual lock did not fit the locker, bring something small, like a luggage lock.
I visited on a lunchtime and was spared the registration form as it was a one-off visit, no swimming test either. It's a nice pool, there were four lanes (two 'free swimming', two 'rapido'), and a double lane for people to bob. I had a lane to myself most of the time. There's a separate learners pool. The water was a little warm but still okay for training. There's no grab rail at the end of the lanes so turning is a bit tricky if you're not doing flips, but it was good impetus to practise flips. Changing facilities are clean and spacious! Overall verdict: Good.

I went a couple of years ago, mid-afternoon, during the summer. I shared my lane with one person only. There is a lot of light and the water is clean, as in most of Lisbon's public pools. The ladies' dressing room was quite shabby and poorly kept. Because of this, I have not gone back.
