It’s way too cold to be swimming in the sea right now (or even in an outdoor pool); I strictly reserve this for temperatures above 17 degrees!
Rather than increasing the risk of catching pneumonia while on a swim sesh, how about swimming indoors?
Here’s a list of places to have a swim during this cold Winter months:
1. Cynergi, St Julian’s
Cynergi has a whooping 17-metre indoor pool. After some laps, enjoy their Turkish bath, steam room and sauna to warm up even further!
2. Inspire, Marsaskala
Inspire offers a heated 25-metre hydrotherapy pool. Swimming classes for kids, aquarobic classes and conditioning classes for the elderly are available too.
3. The Hilton Hotel, St Julian’s
The indoor pool at the Hilton’s health and fitness centre is stunning and the perfect setting for a post workout splash (or just a casual swim).
4. The Westin Dragonara’s fitness centre, St Julian’s
The heated indoor pool at The Westin’s fitness centre is great for swimming in the colder winter months. Non-residents of the hotel are welcome to swim in the pool with various membership options.
5. Corinthia Palace Hotel, Attard
This swanky pool is the sort to relax in, and the Corinthia Palace also offers a day membership for non-guests.
6. Salini Resort, St Paul’s Bay
The beautiful pool here has so much natural sunlight and so many views, you’ll forget you’re indoors!
7. YUE, Naxxar
The pool at YUE is a three lane lap pool which is heated, has qualified pool attendants and a dedicated children’s area. Sounds like a wintery plan.
