This is a huge, Olympic-size swimming pool filled with clean seawater heated to 29°C/85°F and surrounded by sheltered sun terraces. Open each year, daily from late May to early September, it offers a great fun day out for families as well as quiet swims and entertainment and midnight swims in high season (local school holidays). Tickets are valid all day and there's an on-site cafe, picnics are welcome and parking is free.
Cool when it's hot, fun when it's not!
The Pool offers brilliant fun at any time, although there's nothing quite like swimming in warm water in the rain! On sunny days there are sheltered sun terraces with poolside furniture available at no additional cost. Tickets are valid all day, so you can really have a great day out, even on a tight budget. Bring your own picnic or enjoy the tasty hot and cold snacks and drinks available from the Splash Cafe.
The pool's bouyant seawater is filtered, treated and heated to a balmy 29°C or 85°F - for most of the summer, that's warmer than the Med, and certainly cleaner!
All season long (26 May - 2 September inclusive in 2018) there are daily quiet sessions (no music and no unaccompanied kids), a fast chute/slide for swimmers and lane swimming available at different times. There's also inflatable fun for kids (and adults) who can swim on Saturdays and Sundays and a weekly Aqua Zumba session. Please check all timings on our website.
In high season (7 July - 20 August inclusive in 2018) the inflatable fun is daily and there's live music in the bandstand most Saturdays and kid's entertainment, under cover in the Green Room, on most Sundays. Wednesdays are Midnight Swim evenings, with doors open at 9.30pm and the 'aqua disco' swim from 10pm to midnight.
The Pool is located within a stunning Art Deco building which is also easily accessible for visitors with a range of disabilities including wheelchair users. There's also a hoist and friendly help available for swimmers who need it. The facility is owned, staffed and operated to a high standard by Aberdeenshire Council whose partners, The Friends of Stonehaven Open Air Swimming Pool, assist with its promotion and maintenance, and fundraise to provide enhancements such as free pool furniture, floats, hairdryers, and lockers (£1 coin required) as well as the all-important thermal pool covers, used to retain heat overnight.
The pool is easily reached by public transport (bus or train) or car and is well signposted from the main Dundee-Aberdeen road and within Stonehaven, where it is located at the north end of the bay close to the beach and caravan park. Car parking is free. (SatNav AB39 2RD)
