Home Things To Do Swimming Pools

Swimming Pools

Not everyone is a fan of the beach, and even those of us who find them beautiful sometimes just want a break from annoying sand and itchy sea salt. Luckily, Malta is filled with pools and lidos with day memberships and monthly memberships where you can spend your summer in Malta soaking up the sun and taking a dip with stunning views to boot.

Public Pools and Hotel Day Memberships

There are lots of public lidos in Malta which open during the summer months, and also a lot of the hotels in Malta offer day memberships to their pools and these are open all year round. Most pools offer day memberships, even at most hotels, where you pay an entry fee for the day which includes a bed and a sun parasol if required. Once you’re in you can make use of the pool as well as any cafes/restaurants/bars that might be located there too.

Coming in on a cruise, are th there any near by

Rhi 28 January, 2019 - 7:45 am

Nearby where exactly? Valletta? There are quite a few hotels like Phonexia and Excelsior which may have day passes. But if you’re coming now, it’s way too cold to be swimming. Enjoy!

Alison Graham 28 July, 2019 - 10:11 pm


Thank you for your list. Do you have a list for swimming pools in Valletta itself? I’ve recently moved here and am recovering from a fractured knee so I really need a pool.
