Beach Entry Pool Ideas


Most swimming pools have you enter by stairs or a ladder--or just by jumping into the deep end, if that's your style. But we're actually big fans of beach entry pools. No, that's not a pool that you enter from the beach; rather, it's a pool that you enter by wading into gradually deeper water, just like you would do when wading into the water at the beach. This is a comfortable, gradual way to get into the pool, and it adds an element of luxury to your pool, because it makes it feel like an ocean-side retreat!

If you're considering installing a beach entry pool, here are some ideas we think you should consider.

A Large Wading Area

Sometimes, you don't want to get all the way in the water. You may just want to sit and keep cool in some shallow water that is easy to relax in. So when installing your pool, you should consider having a large "wading" area as part of your beach entry. Keep the pool shallow for a long time, so that you can enjoy the cool water without jumping all the way in.

Water Features

One of the most relaxing parts of the beach is the sound of crashing waves. Though we don't really recommend turning your pool into a wave pool, you can mimic the sound of the water by adding a water feature to your beach entry pool. This could be a fountain that bubbles up in your wading area or a beautiful waterfall that tumbles into the deep end of the pool. Either way, it will turn your pool into a beautiful and relaxing place to spend time.
