Venetian Pool, Coral Gables

#2 of 26 in Things to do in Coral Gables
Fun & Games · Sports Complex
Made by filling up a coral rock quarry that supplied materials for building Coral Gables, Venetian Pool was originally known as Venetian Casino. The blue water reflects the Mediterranean Revival architecture next to it, and even touts a Venetian bridge and mooring posts where imaginary gondolas dock for the night. Fresh water fills the pool and is drained and replaced daily through artesian wells. A waterfall and a grotto add to the ambiance and make the pool seem like a natural phenomenon. It's not uncommon to see a wedding taking place poolside with guests spilling out of the attraction's cafe.

  • This place is amazing! After several beach days, the spring water at this pool was greatly welcomed by my family and I. They have a nice little cave too. No outside food is allowed, they sell snacks and finger foods. Better get there early, there is an occupancy limit and they do not let anyone in once it is reached. Family enjoyed this while we were in Miami vacationing! We will definitely pay this place a visit next time we are in Florida. I highly recommend this place.
  • Love! Such a unique fun experience. Beautiful waterfalls, cool caves & fresh water. If your under 5'4 grab a free life vest so you can relax a little as water gets deeper in some areas & you don't want to tread water all day. If you have little ones be careful of the largest waterfall, the current is very strong & will push you down. Lots of lifeguards on duty all day.
