Apart from sandy beaches suitable for families and sports, unspoilt stretches of natural shoreline can also be enjoyed at many of the lakes. Have fun exploring as you set off in search of your favourite beach!
As well as the many lakes, there are also open air swimming pools aplenty for a quick dip or a whole day of relaxation. What's more, they normally have large sunbathing and play areas, making them ideal for the whole family.
When it's not quite so warm outside, how about taking a dip inside at one of the many indoor swimming pools? And after you've done a few lengths and honed your diving skills, you'll have earned your time in the whirlpool!
If you fancy steering your own course across the water, why not hire a rowing boat or a pedalo for a while? It'll certainly do wonders for your muscles! Click here to see our list of boat hire centres.
