Is a Beach Entry Pool Right For You?

Honeysuckle Nursery & Design Beach Entry Pool

A beach entry pool has several benefits over a traditional pool, but it’s not necessarily the right fit for everyone.

Of the many types of swimming pools available, one of the options that have been gaining popularity in recent years is the beach entry pool. These pools have a large, shallow entry area that leads to a gentle slope into the deeper portion of the pool. These pools are a great addition to any property, but what are the pros and cons?

The Pros

There are several benefits to owning a beach entry pool.

Aesthetic: Beach entry pools look amazing. They’re big and luxurious, and you can add any number of water or fire features to jazz them up even more for a pool that is the envy of all who see it.

Warmth: The shallow end of a beach entry pool gets warmed by the sun more quickly than deeper areas, which means you can step right into warm water that has been heated by the power of nature.

Relax: This warm, shallow area is the perfect place to relax on a nice day. You can add lounge chairs right into the water or simply lie down in the shallow entry area to soak up some sun and enjoy the feel of the water.

User-Friendly: The gentle slope of a beach entry pool is a major benefit for many people, including small children, older adults, and anyone with mobility issues. Ladders and stairs can be difficult for some people, but the sloping of a beach entry pool makes getting in and out much easier.

The Cons

While there are several benefits to enjoy, there are also some drawbacks to consider before committing.

Size: Since beach entry pools sport a large shallow area and a gradual slope, they are significantly larger than standard pools. Due to this need for an extensive amount of space, they are not fit for smaller yards.

Cost: The size and specialized design of beach entry pools make them a more costly option than other pool types.

Laps: There is usually plenty of swimming space in beach entry pools, but they aren’t the best option for those who want a pool specifically for swimming laps.

The Verdict

Beach entry pools are an amazing addition to any home, but there are some things that should be considered before you commit to having one installed. Ultimately, these pools are perfect for anyone looking to bring the relaxation of a resort-style swimming pool right into their own backyard.
