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For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us.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

This is a military pool and soldiers train here at erratic hours, but they courteously move or leave one or two lanes for the general public.

Children and adolescents swarm the pool starting at 4:00 PM every day. Not only do they NOT move aside for lap swimmers, they often swim right into them, which forces them to move into the next lane, then the next lane, then the next. Not only can this cause injury, but it forces them out of the shade and into the sun (painfully fierce in Vietnam). The six or eight guards are oblivious — even when bleeding lap swimmers inform them. Hence, lap swimmers are advised to wear long-sleeve swim tops and bottoms (swimmers must shower off sunscreens before entering pool).

Although phone numbers are listed on Facebook, don't waste your time calling, you will NEVER reach anyone. There is no phone in the ticket kiosk.

Despite all of the above, this is the best pool I've found in all of Da Nang (cleanest, good size, fair price). And The water is a comfortable temperature in all seasons.
