St Clair Hot Salt Water Pool

Dunedin, South Island, New Zealand

In contrast to some of the other wilder swimming spots in New Zealand, was this 25 metres long pool at St Clair Beach in Dunedin. It's very much like the sea baths in Sydney but the water is heated to 28 degrees C. This was particularly welcome because the air temperature was a cool 14 degrees, and the sea temperature was 13 degrees.

We swam length after length here, enjoying the hot saltwater, stopping every so often to look out over the sea wall at the surf breaking onto the beach.
