  • Water Testing and quality

    The water is tested every two weeks against EU Bathing regulations to ensure the purity is perfect for open water swimming. So you don’t have to worry.

    The water is slightly salty but really clean and pleasant to swim in.

    You will find that it is a couple of degrees colder than the lakes and more similar to rivers. Come and try it out for yourself.

  • Water Temperature

    We take the water temperature before each session currently the temperature is 16 degrees

  • Your Safety NOWCA
