The Pool

Choose to stay all day or simply pop in for a quick dip; Jubilee Pool is the ideal place for all the family to swim safely in salt water.


The main pool is ideal for all swimmers; there is a small children’s bathing pool for toddlers and younger children.

The pool is triangular in shape yet with gentle curves creating a unique streamlined appearance, featuring steps and Cubist-style changing rooms. High walls protect swimmers from strong, offshore winds and form terraces for spectators and sunbathers. You are very welcome to bring a picnic and there are also tables provided on the top terrace.

Lavatories with baby changing facilities are provided, and there are warm showers. There are 96 changing cubicles on site, but please note that not all of these have doors fitted.
