  • Unfortunately after paying taxi quite much because it's located about 12 km from city center it was closed. Disappointed because i couldnt get the information of their office hour before.. and actuall...  more »
  • Looks OK and a great place to swim if you do not want to swim in the sea, but we went in March and it was empty of water. we will be back in June and give it a try.  more »
  • This place comes up as one of the top attractions around Porto, and although the design is nice, there's really little point in going. It is basically a fenced off part of the beach, with one adult an...  more »
  • Looked nice. But we visited 3 days before it opened. So they were still doing repairs/cleaning ready for the opening on the 15th June 2017.
  • Ok it was designed by a famous architect in the 60's and the design is interesting but as a swimming pool its awful. Changing rooms are tiny and cramped, water is just the sea water so its filled with sand. I can not understand why this place is so popular. You are far better off going for a dip in the sea.
  • We tried to go here yesterday and were told it wouldn't be open for the next week and a half! DON'T RELY ON THE OPENING HOURS ON GOOGLE! We checked just before leaving and it was listed as open all day. We went by public transport and the journey itself was over an hour, only to be disappointed at the end. I tried to find a website for the pool itself, but couldn't find much useful, but if you can obtain a number for them and ring in advance you will hopefully be saved the disappointment of turning up to find it closed.
  • Maybe the best outdoor swimming pool I ever been. It's possible to feel the beach environment and a good place to take children! The only downside is that is always crowded in summer season.
  • We went there and were informed that was closed. if you want to visit it in winter, you should Go to casa da arquitetura first to make a tour reservation, and the office open from monday to friday.
