When at the beach, it can be enjoyable to pull a lounge chair into the shallow ocean water to stay cool while basking in the sun. Did you know that you can add the same effect to your pool? A tanning ledge provides an addition to your pool that is a consistent, shallow depth that is perfect for a variety of reasons. We’ve put together a list of the top four reasons a tanning ledge is growing, popular trend:

1. Sunbathing

Leisure Pools offers swimming pools that have great features like ample seating. The benefit of adding a tanning ledge is it enables you to have a larger area that’s a shallow depth so that you can stretch your legs out. You can even pull a lounge chair onto the tanning ledge and either sit or lay in the sun. On very hot days, it allows you to stay cool.

2. Entertainment for Kids

For babies and small children, a tanning ledge is perfect for splashing around. It’s like having your own personal kiddie pool in addition to having a full sized pool. It’s shallow enough that kids can sit down in the water, and safer than having to watch them in the full sized pool.

3. Aesthetically Pleasing

Leisure Pools offers tanning ledges that are beautiful additions to your home. The tanning ledge can have water that cascades down into your pool, or you can even add jets that shoot the water up creating fountains. You’ll find that it will give your backyard space a stunning look!

4. Colour Options

Tanning ledges are offered in the same seven great gelcoat colours as our pools, ensuring your tanning ledge matches your pool. Tanning ledges can also be tiled .

5. Built-in Tanning Ledges

Not only can you add a tanning ledge to your pool, but you can also have a pool with a built-in tanning ledge (in these pools called a splash deck) as a feature! Leisure Pools offers pool designs that incorporate a tanning ledge. The Allure, The Absolute, The Europa and The Reflection with Splash Deck all have this feature.
