As temperatures increase, we look forward to some refreshing swims this summer! Hong Kong boasts some of the most amazing swimming pools around – many are open for public use! For information about public and private pools across Hong Kong, the HK Pools website is an invaluable tool that provides details such as location, hours of operation and other details for each one.

Swimming pools provide families with an ideal way to exercise together and spend quality time.

Hong Kong pools are a favorite summertime activity among both locals and visitors, providing an enjoyable way to cool off during the heat. Indoor and outdoor pools in HK offer both locals and tourists an ideal way to beat the heat; many pools can be found within major shopping centres or malls or hotels, or as stand-ins at hotels. Entrance fees typically range between $1-20 per person for access; additionally you can purchase lockers to store belongings while swimming.
When considering where to live in Hong Kong with your family, take into account swimming pool facilities when selecting your new home. Larger developments with multiple towers typically boast two or more outdoor swimming pools while single tower developments may only offer one small outdoor pool.
Not all Hong Kong pools have yet reopened due to a shortage of lifeguards, as reported by the Hong Kong Government Lifeguards General Union. Nearly half of LCSD public swimming pools will not open fully this week due to staffing problems; instead schools and swimming training institutions may use facilities when lifeguards are unavailable, provided their instructors possess enough lifesaving knowledge.
Hongkong pools range from average to truly stunning; luxury hotels in particular provide some truly impressive options. The W Hotel’s WET, for example, boasts the highest outdoor pool in Victoria Harbour at 692 feet above. This incredible aquatic oasis features earth-tone mosaic walls of butterflies and psychedelic shapes along with an adjoining bar where guests can sip cocktails.
