A mile is 1600m. So you would need to do 64 lengths to have done 1 mile.

Which is 32 laps.
32 Laps (down and back) = 1 mile

64 Lengths ( 64 lengths X 25 meters/length = 1600 = 1 mile)

Technically a mile is 1609 meters so you'd need to swim about 64.36 lengths if you absolutely must get to one mile exactly.
There are 1,609.344 meters in a mile. Since there is confusion on what a "lap" is, I will include both a one length and two length answer.

When 1 length = 1 lap, you would need to complete 64.3 laps for a mile (I would stop at 64 and call it a mile)

When 2 lengths = 1 lap, you would need to complete 32.18 laps for a mile
64. I think.
1609 / 25 = 64 laps

About 16 lengths of the pool or 8 times up and back (laps).

1 mile = 1,609.334m

1 lap = 25m

Therefore

1609.334/25 = 64.37336 laps

65 laps = (25*65)/1609.334 = 1.01 miles
