Crown Pools swimming baths
As the title suggests, Crown Pools is our ever popular public swimming baths. Very modern in design and architecture. Inside, a wave pool, competition pool and kiddies pool awaits you. All around are hanging ivies and plants to give a sense of the tropics. A gymnasium, sauna, solarium, bar and restaurant await visitors to this place.
A NICE AREA
The area around the waterfront is very well restored, and there are a few nice looking places to eat, drink and socialise
I didnt go in any of them, they were closed when I was there
this boat is used as a restaurant
