Very unique experience! An art deco lido salt water pool. Don't expect it to be warm but it will be warmer than the ocean. I also loved longing on the steps!

The jube is back looking great after a two year renovation. We used a family ticket many times this summer - the children love jumping in the deep. Good in most weather as sheltered from the wind. Cafe good too.

The pool has its own hot tub so worth jumping in for a relax session and is worth swimming in as the pool is a fair size.

yes but because the water temperature is a few degrees warmer than swimming in the sea, not really needed.
How deep us the pool? Feet and inches please? How does the sea water get in and out and how often does it get refreshed? Thanks
