Public pool, Monaco

This public swimming pool in Monaco is located right at the port. What a wonderful facility it is. It costs only about 4,70 E (3 E for kids) and you can stay as long as you like.

A little while ago, Jilly from Monte Carlo Daily Photo featured the pool, and asked "how long does it take to fill?" I got it right! (It's about 5.5 hours). And then I got to swim in it, which Jilly also recorded for posterity.

I was quite surprised when I dived in to discover that it's salt water. For some reason I expected fresh. It was a terrific pool to swim in, and apart from some serious laps, I had fun mucking around with Ben.

For some, the public pool is totally unnecessary...a private pool on your private yacht.
