The Mandalay Bay pool scene ranks among the very best in Las Vegas. You’ll even find a sandy beach and a wave pool here, which provides the allusion that you’ve been transported to the ocean. Complementing the wave pool and its beach are several other pools. Among them is the pool at the adult-oriented Moorea Beach Club, where women have the option to go topless if they so desire. General features of the multi-faceted pool zone at the Mandalay Bay include cabanas, daybeds, other kinds of poolside rentals, and food and beverage services. Rounding things out are a jogging path and numerous palm trees. It all lends to an atmosphere that is reminiscent of a glamorous beachfront resort.

Mandalay Bay Pool
The centerpiece of the Mandalay Bay pool scene is Mandalay Bay Beach. This area covers 11 lush acres and has more than 2,500 tons of real sand to go with its 1.6-million-gallon wave pool. Available for rent at Mandalay Bay Beach are cabanas, day beds, bungalows, and personalized villas. Visitors can also interest themselves in the Beachside Casino, where they will find three stories of climate-controlled gaming. From May through September, Mandalay Bay Beach plays host to big name touring acts during its Beach Concert Series. These live performance events can attract large crowds, so getting your tickets in advance is recommended.
Moorea Beach Club
Mandalay Bay - Moorea Beach Club
Set among Mandalay Bay Beach is the Moorea Beach Club. At this rather sleek and sultry club, there are dipping pools to dip into, cushioned chaise lounges and day beds to unwind on, cabanas to indulge in, and larger pavilion rentals that you might wish to take advantage of. Poolside massage services are also available. The Moorea Beach Club has a "Toptional" policy, which means that women can go topless. This falls in line with the club’s aim to provide a private and sophisticated European bathing experience. Age limit is 21.
Mandalay Bay Lazy River
The Lazy River is another major feature of the Mandalay Bay pool scene. Not a swimming pool in the traditional sense, the Lazy River is instead a quarter-mile-long waterway with gently drifting currents. Inner tubes provide the ideal means by which to navigate the waters of the Lazy River and are available at the hotel. The inner tubes are only allowed on the Lazy River and not on the beach or at the other pools. Encircled by the Lazy River is an island with cabana rentals. The cabanas here are great little alcoves that can be especially ideal for families.
Daylight Beach Club

Several other swimming pools complement Mandalay Bay Beach, the Moorea Beach Club and the Lazy River. They include a pool area that is known as the Daylight Beach Club. This stylish space helped lead the way in redefining the Las Vegas pool scene. It serves as both a day club and a nightlife destination, often playing host to talented DJs who know how to get the party going. Features of the Daylight Beach Club at Mandalay Bay include a 4,400-square-foot pool, a 1,500-square-foot elevated stage, six LED screens, 70 daybeds, 25 cabanas and bungalows, and signature cocktails and cuisine.

If you can’t quite decide between a beach vacation and a trip to Vegas, just head to the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino. The pool scene here makes up for the lack of beaches in the Nevada desert, and the hotel offers everything else that you should need to enjoy a rewarding escape to the Entertainment Capital of the World.
