Venetian Pool, Coral Gables

Made by filling up a coral rock quarry that supplied materials for building Coral Gables, Venetian Pool was originally known as Venetian Casino. The blue water reflects the Mediterranean Revival architecture next to it, and even touts a Venetian bridge and mooring posts where imaginary gondolas dock for the night. Fresh water fills the pool and is drained and replaced daily through artesian wells. A waterfall and a grotto add to the ambiance and make the pool seem like a natural phenomenon. It's not uncommon to see a wedding taking place poolside with guests spilling out of the attraction's cafe.

  • Great Unique pool in heart of Coral Gables! Cool off in a unique setting with its own waterfall and Cave  more »
  • After several trips and attempts to get into the pool, this time we made it and were very happy, had a wonderful day. That yes you have to go early almost at the time they open or be a bit earlier to take advantage because they close early, this place is perfect when you want to change the atmosphere and leave for a day the beach in Miami, to return I would do it again and also recommend it for families Couples or people who travel alone.

  • A very very normal swimming pool. Not worth the $15 dollar entrance fee, it’s not even worth $5. The lady in the entrance needs to learn some customer service. The toilets were dirty and in bad condit...  more »

  • Wow, looking at sites to visit in Miami before our trip down I knew I wanted to see this pool and it didn’t disappoint. Amazingly natural in a non-man-made way, surrounded by beautiful plants and flowers, there was so much to take in. The fresh water was at a refreshing temperature and very enjoyable. The crowd was not bad during our visit which allowed me plenty of time to explore the pool and there was much to see including the corral caves which opened up twice during our visit. The waterfalls were great and so many places to just stop and take in all the nature surrounding you. On top of that is the history and knowing that this pool has been here since 1913. Very cool. A great experience. I’m glad we got to spend the day.
  • Beautiful pool in the middle of coral gables. Enjoy with family and friends whenever you want. Doesn’t get too cold during the winter and doesn’t get to warm during the summer. Perfect for refreshing yourself during a hot summer day.
  • This pool is great for families, although only children 3 and above can get in. Short staffed and pricey ($25 for me and my daughter) but nice to visit at least once when in Coral Gables. There’s a nice area to lay on the sand and a smaller area for kids to play in the water (2 feet and above). Caves are closed sometimes due to lack of lifeguards.
  • My family enjoyed our stay here. It is a spring water-filled pool. The scenery is nice and the water is so relaxing. We would love to go back again.
  • This is supposed to be a place to enjoy with your family, but you are banned from getting in if you have a baby younger than 3 years old!! Even if he is not getting into the pool, he simply can't be there! Is that even legal?? I felt discriminated from having a baby, and so my older kid was not able to enjoy the pool! Terrible !!
