If you’re around Taipa Village, then Carmo swimming pools are a must for a quick splash. Yet another Macau sports complex–located near the Taipa Houses-Museum–it not only has gymnasiums, but also houses both a heated indoor pool, as well as an outdoor one.
The pool’s depth starts at 0.9 metres and doesn’t go deeper than 2.1 metres, making it a great practice area for beginners. Since it’s public, a whole day rate only costs MOP $15 and their night rate is only MOP $5. Shower cap is mandatory. The pool is close to popular dining places such as Adega Velha, The Blissful Carrot and cafés that include Pier Coffee or Rooftop.
Opening hours: daily, 7:00am–12:00pm and 1:00pm–10:30pm*
