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For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us.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

The indoor pool is open seven months of the year; in warm weather there are three outdoor pools, including a 50m x 25m, 2.1m depth swimming pool and a 20m x 21m, 5.5m depth diving pool.
At the time this listing was added (probably around 1997), before we had mapped all the listings, we included the following note: "Foreigners should hire a cab to find the pool and expect the driver to have to ask a lot of directions to find it. Then make arrangements for the cab to pick you up after your swim, as taxis are not readily available at the complex. (Plan that cab fare and searching will add "a hefty amount" to the cost of your swim.)" Now that we have maps on the site and everyone has some form of GPS device, we don't know how much of it still applies.
Note: In September, 2020, we received a note from a swimmer who said had been denied access to the pool because he is Black. We attempted to contact the facility for a statement or explanation, but the email address on its website is apparently no longer working.

Facility Reviews

It’s a decent sized pool, slightly cold initially but fine once into session. The problem was that there were no lanes for lap swimming, so there was constant interruption.
