Swimming at Quarteira Municipal Pool

This is a really important part of our triathlon holidays. 

We actually swim in the beautiful Quarteira Municipal Pool, which if you think of a municipal pool in the UK you’d be thinking, oh no –  it’s not like that at all in Quarteira.

You will be swimming alongside the BTF Elite Triathlon squad because they use the pool for their triathlon camps and you’ll often be swimming at the side of Sophie Caldwell or somebody like that. 

During our April holiday it always coincides with the ETU World Cup event where lots of European triathletes are actually still swimming in the pool prior to the event. 

You could be in a lane next to Gustav Eden or Cassandre Beaugrand, from France, because they will be using the pool at the same time.

If it’s good enough for them, it certainly is good enough for us.

You will absolutely enjoy how beautiful the pool is, how it’s structured for actual lane swimming and to get the best out of your swim time on our triathlon holiday.
