Ocean Pools in the Northern Beaches

  • All Ages

As much as we love to spend a day at the beach, sometimes the thought of sandy sun cream and choppy waves can be a bit overwhelming-especially if mum is flying solo with the kids. But luckily, the Northern Beaches’ many ocean pools are a great way to get the salt and surf in a more contained environment. And if you have a little one with a bit of a wave phobia (like me!) this is the perfect introduction to the sea. We’ve been lucky enough to swim with crabs, blue fish and even an octopus!
