Swimming & Pools in Devon
Being surrounded as we are by beautiful sea and surf, it's natural to get the urge to go swimming while you're in Devon. Several places hold Boxing Day and Christmas Day swims where you can raise money for charity and refresh yourself ready for the day.
Where to swim in Devon
From wild swimming to the more refined swimming pools and spas, there are loads of places across Devon to go for a splash. Of course, you have the beaches which are always a good place to start for a paddle or a swim. In the summer months, the more popular beaches have lifeguards on duty providing a safer environment, while there are other popular wild swimming spots including the River Dart and other rivers and pools across the county which offer a quieter place to swim.
Many of the larger hotels have their own pools, some even have a heated indoor and outdoor pool to explore, with non residents also being able to take a dip, while the holiday parks and complexes often have a host of swimming facilities to enjoy, some even have their own onsite waterparks! For those of you who want a touch of nostalgia, why not stop off at one of Devon's lidos or sea pools? These are often free to visit and often have lovely views to enjoy while you swim.
