Mahon Pool with Darelle and Sally

Today we returned to one of our favourite pools, Mahon at Maroubra.

What's good about it:

  • there is a change area (though it desperately needs updating), so you don't have to travel home with that clammy "swamp-butt" feeling
  • the water is lovely, and because the seas get high at Maroubra, it does get regularly flushed
  • there is a great cafe just across the road. Plus they were able to serve me a delicious salad without any salt! RARE!
  • there is soap available in the toilets
  • it isn't too much of a "scene". No yummy mummies with oversized "look-at-me" strollers, just a great mix of people of all ages and ethnicities
  • parking is relatively easy to find, even on a Saturday of a long weekend, in the school hols
The downsides:
  • not much shade
  • the steps are getting a bit slimy with algae and are a bit precarious for those of us with some balance issues
