Swimming Pool or Beach?
July 12, 2018 1:46am CST
I am not fond of going to a swimming pool here in the Philippines because of many reasons: 1. there's a beach a few kilometers away where we live. 2. swimming pool is not so clean to my taste 3. I got itchy skin when I went with family to a swimming pool a few years ago. 4. I have noticed kids urinate in the pool So, which one do you prefer? I prefer to swim in the sea or ocean whenever we are in the Philippines and I go as often as I want to. The photo is the swimming pool in Amontay beach resort in Mindanao. I took only photo of this pool but my friends, hubby and I enjoyed the beach.

Yes, rivers and lakes are fine for swimming too. We used to live near a river when I was a kid. It was there where we washed our clothes and took a bath. Wonderful memories I got from that river. Sad to say, it is pollluted now @TRBRocks420
Wow, that's a big and nice swimming pool. I prefer to swim in the swimming pool, although I know kids tend to urinate just there. So, if it is what they call a flowing swimming pool, I will swim. I prefer the pool than the beach. I don't like getting darker. I easily get darker when on the beach.

I grew up on the beach and love it. We put in an inground pool at our other house, so I know it was clean. I do swim in the one at our condo in Florida, because it is well maintained and kids don't live there. Give me a beach, but on an ocean, any day!
@thelme55 If the swimming pool were closer than the beach I would have to say swimming pool but if were both the same distance then beach. I love the sand the watching people play games and dogs running along. I love to watch people and I think there are a wide variety at the beach.

I am not a great swimmer, so for swimming purposes I'd rather be in a pool - where the space is controlled and there's an "edge" I can count on. But it cannot compete with the scenery of the beach - so beautiful whereas a pool is so stale.
