Much of Miami is a bustling city of opportunity and glamorous parties; however, a few historical sites are still alive and well, drawing crowds year round. When you take a trip to the Miami Beach area and stay with us at Hotel St Augustine, pay a visit to the Venetian Pool and discover the magic of this beautiful attraction. Take a short drive to Coral Gabels and take a dip in the sparkling waters of the Venetian Pool for an unforgettable experience.
A Bit of History
Built in 1923, the Venetian Pool has had upwards of hundreds of thousands of visitors. People from across the globe have ventured to Coral Gabels to experience the wonder that surrounds this water feature. The pool holds 820,000 gallons of crystal water and was constructed with coral rocks creating an unmatched natural beauty. Two lookout towers, two waterfalls, and cave-like grottos come together around the basin to form a scene like that of a magical realm. Though places like Miami Beach and other surrounding ocean beaches draw crowds that enjoy a swim, the Venetian Pool is unique in having an aquifer, and all 820,000 gallons of its water is drained and re-filled every day. The pool is also surrounded by unique architecture referred to as loggias and porticos that boast stunning historic architectural techniques, and beautiful tropical foliage that add even more exceptional beauty to this breathtaking attraction.
One thing that you will want to keep in mind before setting out from your Miami Beach area accommodations is how busy the pool may be and what hours the pool is open. Throughout the season, the hours of operation for the pool vary, and they are closed on quite a few holidays, so it is always good to make sure you take a look at their website and choose a day accordingly. Only so many visitors are allowed to access the pool at any given time, therefore arriving earlier will help ensure that you get time in the water. Though there may be a bit of a wait, it is well worth it when you can soak in the historical beauty of the shimmering water and gorgeous structures of the Venetian Pool.
