There are some lovely public and outdoor swimming pools in the El Chorro area. They are only open in the Summer months - usually June to September. All opening times of local pools are subject to change and should be checked before planning a visit. Expect to have to communicate in Spanish or very basic English when conversing with local service providers.
Álora has a lovely outdoor municipal pool that is open to the public every day during the summer from 14:00 - 18:00. Check opening times before you plan a visit.
There is a lovely, scenic outdoor swimming pool high up in the hills over Casarabonela with stunning views over the surrounding countryside and a great bar and restaurant. This pool is well worth a visit if you are in the area.
The pool is open seven days a week from 12:00 till 19:00 from June to September, but best to check opening times before you plan a visit.
