  • Best Ocean Baths I've been to. It is BIG and the 10 lane lap swimming area is great. We had waves splashing over the diving blocs for dramatic effect and small fish darting about. There are understandably no lane dividers or flags, which makes backstroke challenging. Although there were warnings regarding the presence of Blue Bottles in the water, many people were still happy to continue swimming. As I finished my 2 km swim, a Blue Bottle was floating between me and the edge of lap pool. Clean bathroom and changing facilities. Parking is tight as this is a very popular Ocean Bath and beach.
  • Good place to go for a swim. Safe pools with the ocean water. Have a smaller shallow pool for the kids. Ample parking space. Quite a number of straight stairs to practice stepping up/running up the stairs exercises. Nice view and breeze.
  • Great place to hang out by the beach, especially for kids.
  • Great spot to hang out with the family, grab a coffee or go for a swim.
  • This is a pool you need to experience. It caters for families including picnic tables & beach pool for children to lap swimmers all year round.
