Top 5 Hong Kong Pools

Hong Kong is famous for its shopping and dim sum, but we mustn’t overlook its stunning swimming pools. From natural infinity pools on mountaintops to the world’s highest pool in an office building, this city is full of picturesque places where one can cool off.

Public pools in this city are just as stunning as its beautiful surroundings, boasting leisure and training pools designed with both leisure and training in mind, offering opportunities to develop techniques or simply relax in the water. Many even provide facilities like diving platforms or whirlpools so you can pump up adrenaline as well as unwind!

After the dissolution of Urban Council and Regional Council at the turn of this millennium, all public pools were taken over by Leisure and Cultural Services Department (LCSD). Although some still bear their original names, most have been rechristened and all have received fresh new looks – there is more than enough swimming opportunities available thanks to new pools opening up in Sheung Shui and Tin Shui Wai.

This sprawling complex looks out over Tolo Harbour and features an outdoor main pool with diving platforms, teaching pool and leisure pool – plus kids will love its pirate ship with water cannons and waterslides! Don’t forget the two fastest waterslides in the country — perfect for burning off some excess energy!

Victoria Peak Pool offers stunning views of Victoria Peak and the cityscape beyond, and provides one of the most relaxing pools in town with plenty of shaded seating and several different water slides and activities to choose from – making this an excellent way to spend a relaxing afternoon with family while taking in its picturesque surroundings.

After spending a day at the pool, chances are you’ll be hungry. Luckily, there are numerous nearby dining options – like Wing Lai Yuen’s famous Sichuan noodles. Additionally, check out the food court of the mall where your pool is located for quick and convenient solutions.

If you’re considering moving to Hong Kong, make sure the pool facilities will fit your needs. Larger developments with multiple towers tend to feature swimming pools for families while smaller single tower developments might only have outdoor pools – ideal if your children want to learn to swim but less so if you plan to run laps. In such instances, visit Ritz-Carlton Pool afterward as an oasis of peace.
