Why You Need a Pool With a Tanning Ledge

Have you ever sat your chair at the edge of the lake, dipped your toes in the water, while you enjoyed the warmth of the sun? Maybe you didn’t want to go swimming but still wanted to be a part of the action, or were just looking for a relaxing place to sunbathe. A tanning ledge, also known as a tanning shelf, is an ideal way to experience the indulgence of sunbathing while still being able to experience the cooling water of your pool.

Why You Need a Pool With a Tanning Ledge

What Is a Tanning Ledge?

A tanning ledge is a unique pool feature created by installing a level area in your pool, typically near the entry point. Covered by several inches of water, the ledge makes a fantastic oasis ideal for a couple of lounge chairs and even a small table. A tanning ledge is a perfect spot to relax by the pool and read a book or keep an eye on the pool play without being concerned about falling off a raft and ending up swimming.

What Are The Benefits of a Tanning Ledge?

Tanning ledges are not a new idea, but they are becoming increasingly popular with pool owners for several reasons.

  • A tanning ledge adds a special touch to your pool that gives a sense of luxury.
  • It makes the ideal spot to warm up or cool down before or after swimming laps or other pool activities.
  • The calming effect of being in the water makes it a great place to relax and enjoy a good conversation.
  • The shallow water depth is perfect for splashing around with small children or for your pet to cool off.
