Hong Kong is home to some of the world’s best public and hotel pools, so it should come as no surprise that it’s a popular destination for swimming. Not only can it be a great way to stay active, but it can also provide a fun and healthy break from the hustle and bustle of the city. Here are our picks for some of the city’s top pools to help you get your fill of this relaxing activity!
The biggest public pool complex in Causeway Bay is a true aquatic paradise for kids and adults alike. There are three outdoor swimming pools, a pirate ship and a number of water slides to take you on an adventure! It’s also a great spot to relax with a good book or catch some sun with a refreshing drink.
Tsing Yi has one main pool, two teaching pools, a leisure pool and a toddler pool so you’ll find something to suit everyone in your group. It’s a family favourite and is open throughout the day so you can take advantage of the long warm days.
Another popular choice is the indoor main pool at Kwun Tong, which has a number of pools and water slides. It’s a great escape from the heat and humidity of Hong Kong (and it’s open all year round) and also offers great views of Victoria Harbour.
Set way high up on a rooftop, Kerry Hotel’s stunning 25-metre infinity pool is arguably one of the most Instagram-worthy spots to cool off in. With a deck shaded by tropical plants, it’s the perfect place to catch the sunset or indulge in some refreshing drinks and snacks before heading to the bar for an evening on the town.
W Hong Kong is currently operating as a quarantined hotel, but it’s worth a visit for the view and the amenities.
