Beach entry or sometimes called zero entry swimming pools can add an attractive and fun look to your pool. A beach entry pool is a pool with one of entry sides of the pool gradually sloping from the decking into the pool water. Beach entries can have steps at the end of the slope to enter deeper into the pool more quickly. Beach entry pools are gaining more popularity these days not only because of their spectacular look but because they also serve some practical purpose. Beach entry pools make it easier for elderly person’s and people with disabilities to enter the swimming pool. Beach entries are also a fun spot for small children to play and enjoy the water. Because the water is shallower at the beach entry, it is an ideal spot to relax and even sun tan while getting the benefits of cooling off with the water.
A tanning ledge or sometimes called a sun shelf is another attractive feature you can add to your swimming pool. By definition, a tanning ledge is perfect for sunbathing while being submerged in just inches of water. A tanning ledge is basically like one big step submerged in anywhere from 3 to 18 inches of water. To really make your tanning ledge look great you can add bubbler fountains or even a built in umbrella. Tanning ledges are perfect for small children to play in the water while making it easier for adult supervision. Tanning ledges can also be seen as more in pool seating square footage. You can also purchase furniture specifically for tanning ledges making your experience that much more comfortable and relaxing.
