Have you tried some night swimming? I have done night swimming in a swimming pool when I'm in a resort hotel or when I am attending a conference. usually, the venue for conferences are in hotels or resorts with swimming pools and you can only enjoy the pool after the sessions and usually it's already night, so night swimming I go. I have also experienced night swimming in the sea with my friends.

last april we went on a summer vacation with my friend & her mom. we stayed in a resort for an overnight stay. the resort has a small cabin where we stayed with all the facilities that we needed like griller, tables, chairs, washroom etc.. it was so relaxing you could go & swim anytime during your stay. we went night swimming until it was too cold to get in & out of the pool. i guess that was the 1st & last time i went swimming this year. though when i was in college we usually go to the beach. there's this one time we went night swimming & all of us took off our clothes. the skinny dipping was so cool since no one would see us and since the water in not clear. i miss those days..

I think night swimming is as fun as swimming in day. Each has its pros and cons. Here's what I have to say: Night Swimming: (Pros) 1. No sunburn - Of course, in order to get sunburns you need the sun. So this avoids the problem of having burnt skin afterwards. 2. The wind is cool but the sea is warm - It is said that land heats up and cools down faster than water because of it's molecular content. Anyhow, since water cools down slower then at night you'd have warmer seas and cooler air which is pleasurable when swimming. 3. Fewer people - Fewer people go swimming at night, thus enabling you to have a bit of privacy with your friends or the people you're with. Night Swimming: (Cons) 1. Sometimes to dark to see - It's specially dangerous because you wouldn't know what you're stepping into, it might be some rubble in the sand or some pit. Plus, in case of accidents it would be more difficult to see. 2. High Tides and Strong waves - It's usually high tide with strong waves at night, so swimming might be a problem. 3. Fewer Hours to enjoy - Fewer hours until sleep time so fun might not be as long as you wanted since sooner or later people would eventually sleep. If I am the one asked, I'd prefer afternoon swimming. Around 3:00pm when the sun is about to set, cooler air, lesser people, just enough light for you to appreciate the sea and the view. Warmer seas, cooler winds. Higher tides but not too high nor too much waves. Plus, not enough sun to burn you. It's just right. That's why my family and I would usually go to the beach around 12noon or earlier to eat with friends, but do some swimming at around 3pm. =)

Me and my cousins loved night swimming. Back when we were staying in Los Banos we would go swimming at night until we get tired. It was really fun.

Yes, I have been night swimming a lot of times. I have a pool and swim in the daytime and the nighttime. However I prefer to swim in the daytime because I love the sun and the heat from it.

I don't like swimming during the day really. I hate the feeling of having to go through sun burn after a day swimming. I am rather enjoying myself too much with night swimming whether it be on a pool or on the sea. It is rather much enjoyable when you are swimming with your friends. Last May, I went to puerto galera beach resort here in the Philippines with my new found friends and we have enjoyed night swimming far better than swimming during the day light.
