Book Ocean Pools
OCEAN POOLS: 75 Pools across Australia for saltwater swimmers
MCDERMOTT, MARIE-LOUISE & CHEN, CHRIS
Fly along Australia’s rocky surf coasts and you’ll occasionally see brilliant beads of blue cut into the rock platforms. These humble-yet-treasured saltwater sanctuaries for humans and marine life are what we call ocean pools. This book celebrates ocean pools developed by human efforts to enhance nature to provide convenient, accessible pools offering swimmers protection from sharks, rips and the full force of the surf. You’ll find everything from simple rings-of-rocks pools to pools carved out of rock platforms, tidally flushed pools and seawater pools with concrete floors and sides, pumps and marked lanes.
