Paris top five open-air swimming pools, solariums and water points

1. Piscine d’Auteuil – Métro : Porte d’Auteuil

The success of this pool is partly due to its partially sunroof that allows you to swim in the sun. The pool also has a solarium outdoor that attracts sunbathers. Nice place and not crowded.


Route des Lacs à Passy, 75016 Paris – Tel : +33 (0) 1 42 24 07 59

2. Centre aquatique de Neuilly-sur-Seine – Métro : Pont de Neuilly

It is not a pool, it is a « water park », which has three indoor pools and a small outdoor pool for sunbathing, but also two solariums and some beaches. it is expensive: EUR 5.20 if you are resident, EUR 5.70 otherwise. Everything is clean and well maintained. It can become overcrowded during peak hours, especially among athletes swimmers where traffic jams are commonplace…

27-31 Bd d’Inkermann, 92200 Neuilly-sur-Seine – Tel: +33 (0) 1 55 62 62 70

3. Paris Plages – More info here

Until August 18. Free access. I would recommend the one at the Bassin de la Villette (Metro Stalingrad). Very nice spot especially for runners (good sensation when you end run under the water spray!) or if you want to relax and play « boules de pétanque ».

In front of the town hall (Metro Hôtel de Ville), and at the Bassin de la Villette (Metro Stalingrad) 

4. Piscine Joséphine-Baker – Metro M° Quai de la Gare

Moored next to the Bibliothèque François Mitterrand in the 13th arrondissement,  Josephine Baker swimming pool is a giant barge housing of 25 metres long and 10 metres wide. This one-of-a-kind swimming experience providing a fabulous view of the Seine. Besides the main pool, there is a 50-m² wading pool for children, not to mention solariums, saunas, a hammam, a jacuzzi and a gym featuring fitness and bodybuilding equipment.

Quai François Mauriac, 75013 Paris – Tel : +33 (0) 1 56 61 96 50

5. Cool water points

The water mirror and the fountain – New place de la République, 75011 Paris

Public drinking fountain with cooled, sparkling water in the Jardin de Reuilly (12th)
