If you want to feel the salt in your hair but are more inclined towards lap swimming than wave dodging, head to South Curl Curl Rock Pool, which is helpfully divided into two sections by the original wall of the pool that dates back to the 1920s. You have a 50m pool on one side, though no ropes to guide you, and on the other is a shallower splash and play area for little flippers. If you’re wanting to stretch out up on the tiled bank at the ocean end like a happy fur seal we’d suggest holding on tight to the chain railing – even with the spilling basin in place waves can come crashing over the walls at high tide.
