The swimming facilities at Salt Ayre are second to none. With a 33 metre pool with moveable floors and boom enabling varying pool depths, relaxing spa pool and fun waterslide for the kids, swimming at Salt Ayre caters for a whole host of aquatic events and requirements.
The pool currently hosts a number of local swimming clubs, and offers swimming courses and lessons for children and adults.
We also have assisted access equipment available for anyone who require some assistance getting in and out of the swimming pool.
Like our other facilities, the pool area is available for hire throughout the year.

One responsible person may accompany two children, under the age of eight in the water at all times. However, only one child may be under the age of 5 years. Children's swimming ability will NOT override this policy under any circumstances.
Children who wear armbands/use floatation aids are not permitted in the deep end of the pool or on the giant inflatable during floats sessions due to health & safety restrictions. Children may also be asked to conduct a 'swim test' if the lifeguards on duty do not feel they are safe to be in the deep end / on the giant inflatable. In the interest of the safety of our swimmers, lifeguards are able to restrict pool usage at their discretion.
