I think I prefer a pool nowadays.

I used to swim at Bondi every weekend, almost all weekend and was always one of the furthest out, but when I came to Perth to live, I got dumped really badly at a beach and have not gone so often since. Also my husband did not like the beach so we built a pool!

Nowadays even though I was quite a good swimmer, I rarely go swimming, but would still prefer a private pool if I do.

Beach! I love swimming in the sea, I've been fascinated by it since I was a tiny girl and that has never gone away for me. I really don't understand those folk who stay in a luxury beach hotel but spend their whole holiday lying next to and swimming in the pool....
Neither,as I do not swim!!! I am not fond of water as I nearly drowned as a child and despite more attempts than I can count,to learn to swim,I just cannot get over this fear!!!
Ditto, ditto and ditto :-)))

Oh Rice!! You treasure!!! Most people cannot truly understand how I feel about this and why! By the way,I also used to adore the rice paper which was wrapped around the very high quality nougat when I was a kid!! We do have a lot of little things in common!

I'm not a huge fan of swimming but if I were going to swim it would be in a pool. I hate sand!
I definitely prefer a pool

A private beach would be ideal ;)
Beach. Waves and salt water are much nicer. Don't like the crowds though!
I like to swim in a pool. Doesn't have to be a private pool though. I don't mind a public pool either.
I prefer the beach, unless I have access to some ocean baths or a nice private pool. Salt water is very calming, and I find it especially relaxing having a dip in the early morning, on a hot summer's day.

In some places in Australia (New South Wales, at least), there are many ocean baths, where you can swim in the natural salt water, close to the beach, but away from the big waves. I'm familiar with the ones at Newcastle and Merewether, but know that there are many others along the NSW coastline, as well.
I prefer the beach but not on crowded days.

I prefer private pool
Private pool for swimming and bbq gatherings. Beaches are nice to look at and maybe live near but way too many people around, the sharks can have it to themselves, LOL!
I can't swim. So the question is what do I prefer splashing around in AND where I can touch the bottom at all times ... Has to be a pool.

the ocean freaks me out big time, just the thought of all that water !
Amen to all of that.

Pools are more convenient. Beaches get messy. If I had the choice, a private pool would be perfect.
I love to lay out on the beach, go to sleep with the windows open so I can hear the ocean and feel the breeze. When it comes to swimming I prefer to swim in a pool so I can see what is around me.
Only a private pool thanks! I hate getting sand on at the beach. But having said that, I've never swam in the pools on the 11/12 cruise ships we've been on, although I've always taken my cosies with me, but I have swam at a couple of beaches while on the cruise ships, with 1 being Bora Bora, & on one of the 4 Hawaiian beaches we visited on the same cruise. Oh yes, I waded into the water on Isle Of Pines, but I didn't actually swim,
although I can swim!
by Miro
Private pool would be first preference, as there is too much sand that can get into swimmers and become uncomfortable at the beach. haha
