Hong Kong Pools – The Best Places to Cool Off This Summer

As summer’s telltale signs appear – overcrowded beaches and air conditioning units that hum along incessantly – it may be time to discover one of Hong Kong’s top hotel pools. From luxury infinity pools that overlook Victoria Harbour to water zones perfect for kids and adults to splash around, here are some great spots in which you can cool off this summer.

If you’re in search of something a bit more luxurious than your average public swimming facility, The Mira Hong Kong may have what you’re searching for. Their indoor pool features modern design with floor-to-ceiling windows offering breathtaking city views below. Plus they offer Jacuzzis and lounge chairs so that when it comes time to unwind post swim you can also appreciate this magnificent landscape!

Tung Chung Swimming Pool provides an enjoyable pool experience without overwhelming its visitors, featuring natural materials that increase ventilation while letting plenty of natural sunlight through. Relax on its balcony overlooking the water to people-watch, or dive into its outdoor swimming pool for breathtaking sunset views over Hong Kong Bay.

At the center of the city lies this great pool for any visitor to the Central business district. The circular design boasts both shallow and deep ends for beginners and advanced swimmers to use alike; lounge chairs surround one area while another hosts diving boards and lane markers – perfect for swimmers at every skill level!

Tai Po Public Swimming Pool in Hong Kong is one of the largest and best-known public pools, frequently visited during weekdays and weekends for its water slides – many of them among the tallest and longest in Hong Kong! They also feature diving, teaching and leisure pools plus one designed especially for toddlers; thus offering something suitable for everyone!

Following phase-two’s relaxation of social distancing regulations, many public pools have finally reopened; however, not all have had equal luck. According to Tang Tsz-on of Hong Kong Government Lifeguards General Union, due to a miscommunication between government and union officials 38 public pools had to remain closed for one week in order to be cleaned and disinfected thoroughly before opening properly on Monday whereas 24 facilities are scheduled to reopen their doors.

When visiting a public pool, always double-check its website to view opening hours and information on lane availability. Swimming pools are overseen by The Leisure and Cultural Services Department and entrance fees cost HK$17 on weekdays and HK$19 on weekends; discounts may also be available to people with disabilities, people over 60, children aged 3-13 as well as full-time students.
