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For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us.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 pool was a pleasure to swim in! It was clean and very light and airy. I went at a few different times and it was never very crowded. The two walls of windows make it extra lovely to swim there.
Excellent place to swim. Never crowded, clean, and easily accesible. Worth the €10 per visit.

A great find! (Don't tell anyone!). I had my own lane with a few empty lanes around me on a weekday afternoon. Kick boards and pull-buoys are readily available. A swim cap is required and bring your own padlock. The desk attendant spoke English and was very nice / helpful.

I love this place; it's a beautiful glass building quietly tucked behind a parking structure on busy São Bento

The pool is within walking distance of the city center. Good for training. The Masters team was swimming there when I arrived. It was not crowded, I got a lane of my own. Do remember to bring a swimcap and a lock.

On a Wednesday evening, only one lane, denoted by a yellow pista livre sign, was open to lap swimmers. A swim team, private lessons, and aqua aerobics used the others. The blue line at the bottom of my lane was almost directly underneath my lane line, which I kept running into. The pool had eight, blue, T-line markers on the bottom, but nine lanes were set up, rendering the blue lines useless. Throughout a four-month period, I used many pools in 15 European countries, and this was by far my most expensive and most awkward swim. The lockers accommodate only very tiny locks. (My TSA suitcase lock worked well.) The lane lines could use a good cleaning; a layer of grey grime covered the exposed parts. On the positive, the staff was cheerful and helpful, and lots of kickboards and pull buoys were available. I was told there was a 90-minute to two-hour time limit, but it didn’t seem like it was enforced. The locker rooms are single gender, and a shower automatically sprays you on your way to the pool.

Pool hours for 2018-2019 are: Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 7 AM to 4:45 PM and from 7 to 9:30PM; Tuesday and Thursday from 7 AM to 9:30PM; Saturday from 8:30 AM to 6:30 PM; and Sunday from 9 AM to 1:30 PM.
