Scarborough Beach Pool has two pools available for use. Both are geothermally heated to keep the water temperate for year-round use making it the ideal place to swim in both summer and winter.

Lap pool

The main lap pool (heated to 26-28°C) consists of eight 50m lanes and four 25m lanes. Multiple configuration options are available, with depths ranging from 1.2m to 2.2.m.

Leisure pool

The facility has a separate leisure pool, for more leisurely swims and swimming lessons.


The facility boasts a 200 seat grandstand and other spectator areas along with a spacious surrounding promenade with open-air seating. On hot summer days you can relax on the sun lounges (with optional shaded areas). Or if you’re looking to enjoy a family outing, we have dedicated family-friendly zones available too!

Amenity and Accessibility

Scarborough Beach Pool is designed to be fully accessible. Both pools have ramp entrances and the facility has a universally accessible toilet and change room that includes a ceiling hoist. Wheelchairs are available upon request and there is also lift access from the Esplanade carpark to the pool entrance.

Private Swimming Lessons

If you’d prefer a more personalised approach to learning how to swim, we also offer one-on-one private lessons. Check out our Entry Fees page for more information.
