Ocean Pools by Marie Louise McDermott. 

75 Pools across Australia for saltwater swimmers!

Fly along Australia's rocky surf coasts and you'll occasionally see brilliant beads of blue cut into the rock platforms. These humble-yet-treasured saltwater sanctuaries for humans and marine life are what we call ocean pools.

This book celebrates ocean pools developed by human efforts to enhance nature to provide convenient, accessible pools offering swimmers protection from sharks, rips and the full force of the surf. You'll find everything from simple rings-of-rocks pools to pools carved out of rock platforms, tidally flushed pools and seawater pools with concrete floors and sides, pumps and marked lanes.

Communal, sustainable, restorative - ocean pools are sites of memory and identity. With stunning photography, a clear guide to each pool's amenities, accessibility and location, this book provides the perfect inspiration and guide to your ocean pool dreams.
