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For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us.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 one time I was there, the 50m pool was divided in half (length-wise). Half had no lanes - people were swimming laps trying not to collide. The other half had four lanes set up: two for classes/teams and two for fast and medium swimmers where people were following lap swim etiquette.
This pool is crowded, but still one of the better pools for swimming etiquette in Hong Kong. The main pool is divided into lanes on one side and a free swimming area on the other. There are lanes dedicated to coaching and swimming squads, but there are always two lanes for the public. The lanes are thin to fit more in, so swimming is a little tight. It is best to come after 8:30 PM when much of the crowd has gone.

The facility was very good and well kept. People were trying to swim laps on the open swimming side, but were bumping into each other. In the lanes most people were keeping to the left (with a few exceptions). One point to note: They don't allow any flotation devices or other training gear in the 50m pool, so don't bring paddles, fins, pull-buoys, etc. Overall, it's a very good pool that I visited four or five times while in HK on business. The best time to visit is after 8 PM, when there are not a lot of people.
[December, 2014]
This is now the better option for lap swimming in this part of HK than the hopelessly overcrowded Victoria Park Pool, but only if you go late (8:30 PM or later). No Hong Kong public pool is swimmable for laps right after work due to crowding. As with all HK pools: only two lap lanes, never more; slow, almost stationary swimmers; no kickboards allowed; no pace clock; very turbulent; no proper lane lines; no backstroke flags (sometimes there's a barely-visible rope); and it closes for seven weeks every year, right at the beginning of summer! (Check the website to avoid a wasted journey.)
[June, 2015]
Rating: 6 on a scale of 10. At 1:45 PM, there were at least four people in each of the two lanes that were set up. People swim any style, any speed. The rest of the pool was full-ish with people swimming slowly up and down but every which way. This is the emptiest it will ever be. Swimming in Hong Kong is an adventure.
