Hilsea Lido is a 67m long unheated pool

It is 1m deep at the shallow ends, and has a 4.5m deep diving pit

We also have a 2m diving platform in the middle

The Ladies and Gents facilities have individual changing and shower cubicles

A small number of swim aids and water games are available and you are welcome to bring your own

The site has wide door access and ramps

Be safe - please slap on the sunscreen and keep hydrated during your visit!

Wetsuits are permitted.

Beach shoes rather than bare feet are recommended for walking around the site.

During fun sessions the pool is divided to ensure safe management of the diving platform which is open if sufficient lifeguards are available.

'Just Swim' sessions are for adults only, the whole length of the pool is available but the diving platform is not.

We have picnic tables and plenty of space for sunbathing and you are welcome to bring your own seating and picnic. Alternatively, why not head over to the Blue Lagoon to sample the homemade cakes, tea, coffee and various hot and cold lunches! You'll also find ice creams and ice cold drinks!

Hilsea Lido is available for private hire, please contact us for further information.
