Ocean Pools

I've been trying to visit as many ocean pools as possible over the past few years.
This post is an attempt to gather together a single  favourite picture from each.

A fair amount has been written about Australia's ocean pools, especially those in NSW. There are a few links below. You can google more.

NSW Ocean Baths (a project to swim 1000 metres in all NSW's Ocean Baths. Great photos!)

Hi Sally, I've been following your swimming blog for some time now. Some great photos here of seawater pools. Some of the harbour/ estuary baths around Sydney are great as well. I've posted photos of these at http://lazyswimmer.blogspot.com.au/
