Not to be missed coral rock pool. So relaxing and in the shadow of the Biltmore Hotel. Historic, fun, exercise and relaxation all in one. Ride a bike there and make an afternoon exploring historic Coral Gables!

Built in 1924 still an amazing thing to see. Get there by car via the Coral Road from the west and come through Coral Gables (an attraction in itself) to see a lovely, tree lined part of Miami. Free parking. Discounted entry in winter months;$9 each plus $5 for a sun bed if you want one. Clean, slightly chlorinated and... More

For a true Old South Florida experience that is guaranteed to cool you off, visit the Venetian Pool. Built in the 2920s, this pool is fed by natural Springs so it is always quite cool. It's designers built coves and waterfalls that will intrigue and delight everyone in the family. Sometimes difficult to find since driving in the Gables can... More

Even if you don't have time to swim here, you owe it to yourself to take a self-guided tour of the Venetian Pool for a dollar! What other tourist attraction can you see for a mere dollar? The Saturday afternoon we came, there was plenty of room on the pool deck for our rental lounge chairs ($5). The pool was... More

Had a fantastic morning lazing in this most beautiful pool. Very well maintained and staffed, food is ok and very reasonably priced. Water was lovely. Well worth a visit if you are in the area.

This place is beautiful. It is a historic pool nestled away in a beautiful suburb of Miami. It is a freshwater pool so it is very refreshing. Entry is $13 for adults and $8 for children. I believe children under 3 are not allowed to swim. Beach chairs and lockers can be hired too. We got there when it opened... More
