Sarah Thelwall: when you get there it is labelled as a 'boating pool' and in theory there is no swimming. however it has steps and people do regularly swim in it
Fiona Bettles: I swam there with my friend on 20/8/14 and it was delightful al though it isnt very deep - .5 to 2.5 m approximately. There are signs saying no swimming but we ignored this. I spoke to one of the lifefguards on the beach and she said that the reason the signs had been put up was because at high tide people were slipping on the pool surround, banging their heads etc and it was felt it was too much of a risk to be in use! Seems a huge shame to me as it was lovely and in a prime location in the main town bay. I hope other people do enjoy it as we did. Best at low tide.
The sign which says you can't use it so you may get told off!
