These Condos Have the Best Pools in Miami for Swimmers
Aug 10, 2020 August 10, 2020
Okay, okay… we know Miami's beaches are some of the most amazing in the world, even for swimming. But sometimes there’s nothing like a dive into a fresh pool. And there are plenty of reasons why. Swimming is a fabulous full-body workout -- it increases energy levels, it’s great for the heart and lungs, it works on keeping up muscle tone, it reduces stress levels, helps lose weight, and so much more. Not to forget, it’s also a great way to cool off during these sweltering summer months and get us outdoors! And if you’re a triathlete, surfer, kite-surfer or diver, a great pool is a necessity.
Thankfully in Miami, swimming is a year-round indulgence. So, whether you swim to keep healthy, train for the next Triathlon, or just to unwind on the weekends (we know how fitness-focused Miami is!), having a lap pool or Olympic-sized pool at your own Miami condo is definitely a perk.
For this reason, we’ve rounded up the Top Miami condos that offer the most envious set lap pools (and of course who can resist the resort style pools) in the Magic City. Here’s taking a dip:
