    The improvements to the foreshore is excellent and after a walk from Main Beach the baths are a great pace to cool down. Before a coffee at one of the two Cafes on the waters edge.  more »

    Took our grandson here to play in the sand and he ended up chasing the birds. It was sunny warm winter day great for a walk on the beach  more »

    This pool is in the most beautiful location, and the pool is huge and well maintained, even with lanes marked. The wide ramp with railings into the pool makes this pool accessible to all.  more »

    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.

    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.
