This is an innovative pool on a barge in the Seine. It is a bit of a trek from the nearest metro station but a lovely way to spend a couple of hours. It can get busy, especially in the August Parisian weather so we...More

Great place to enjoy a swim whilst in Paris. In summer the roof is opened making it perfect for sunbathing as well.

I went to the Josephine Baker pool in July on a very hot afternoon and it was amazing. It was worth waithing (longer then 1 hr!, but there is some sun protection). The entrance fee was 5 euro for 2 hrs. Be aware of the...More

Training for an Ironman while on business abroad may sound like a nightmare to any triathlete, but in Paris it is super easy and extremely interesting. There are many public swimming pools, mostly located conveniently close to metro stations and with small entry fees. The...More

In the morning, on weekdays, it isn't crowded. It's never empty because it's Paris and this is a really cool pool, but in the morning there are always less people.
