Pools in Japan are usually divided in two sections: lanes running the length of the pool for "serious" swimmers, and a general section for everybody else (including children etc). In the "serious" lanes, all you're allowed to do is swim up and down the lane at the same speed as others in that lane, which are typically physically marked with lane ropes. ...

I think that ultimately it is up to you to do whatever you feel like is safer for you. Given a choice nobody, be it here on TSE or elsewhere, will (want to) make this decision for you. What I can do however is to give you a few pointers to help you make an informed decision. Sinking Might Be Hard, Drowning Not so Much First things first the Dead Sea is ...

Acording to this surfing site, which claims to have up-to-date and historical statistics about water temperature, the water is supposed to be warm enough (according to your definition) from June to October. I'm linking below the image of the sea temperature range in Barceloneta (one of Barcelona's beaches) to save it for future readers:

In France, the law puts the mayor in charge of securing bathing areas so all rules are indeed local. However, it's mostly about deciding where bathing is allowed or not and not so much on clothing and other details. While there are typically extensive rules for public swimming pools, I have never heard of similar rules for open-air swimming, whether they ...

This site (in French) shows 11 bathing spots in Touraine on an interactive map. These include reservoirs (plans d'eau), converted quarries, riverside beaches, as well as lakes. Here is another interesting page (in French) from the departmental website, showing swimmable areas in Touraine. Lastly according to this other website, the closest swimming location ...

This page has a list of swimming pools in Tel Aviv, both in and outdoor. It also has links to their sites, and prices. The pools that don't have a price on the page, also don't have a price on their site. The pools that do have a price listed: Jimmy’s Pool – Dizengoff Centre Top Floor, 03-6201130 : 70 NIS. Tel Aviv University – Haim Levanon 64, ...

To be legally covered (pun intended), just make sure that you have some piece of clothing around your scrotum and the shaft. The social aspect is quite more complex and the acceptable degree of skimpiness will not just differ between cities, but also between the different beaches in each region. Even if male thongs are not too common on mediterranean ...

I'm quite familiar with Ensenada (considering purchasing a holiday residence there), which is 50 miles to the south of Rosarito. I assume you're asking because of the electricity generator and the transport docks in the northern part of Rosarito, so I'll scope this answer down to south of the fishing pier. If you'll accept that, then the water quality is ...

In my answer below, I use the Nagai Park swimming pool as a reference, but I think it is almost identical to other swimming pools in Japan. It is totally not allowed to swim in any direction parallel to the width of the pool. Almost the same as what was already mentioned by @jpatokal in his answer, each lane has its own purpose (probably scheduled ...

The Bostalsee and the Losheimer See are indeed nice spots. But you may also consider a trip across the border to Remerschen. There are lakes where swimming is legal and safe. From Saarbrücken it is a 45 minutes drive. More or less the same as if you drive to the Bostalsee or the Losheimer See. Depending on where you live in the Saarland, Remerschen might ...

The Gstaad Palace Hotel fits your needs. It has both indoor and outdoor pools, and it states that the outdoor pool is available in winter ("including winter outdoor pool"). The hotel is a 5-star luxury hotel, and is situated in Gstaad, a village in the canton of Bern, in Switzerland.

Well, you have nailed it pretty well because Saarland is the smallest non-city state in Germany and there are not many lakes. Bostalsee in 66625 Nohfelden. Very nice lake with several smaller lakes in vicinity. Stausee Losheim in 66679 Losheim am See. River quality has improved so much that bathing and swimming should be no problem, even in the Saar. ...
