Attached to the main pool is a 3m round children's pool 70centimeters deep with internal steps.
The sterilization of the pool is by saline electrolysis - To put it simply the pool has salt in it and the electrolysis machine breaks the salt down into its base components, chlorine and sodium. This is exactly how the sea is kept clean, it is very natural and the chlorine that is produced is of a different structure making it almost undetectable to smell and kind on the eyes. There is an additional bonus in that the salt in the pool gives more bouyancy that fresh water and that has allowed many of our younger visitor to learn to swim more quickly.
The pool has a large sun bathing terrace, there are sun loungers and table and chairs available.
The pool is enclosed within a security barrier with self-closing gate.. Sun loungers.
