This is a large public pool shaped like a giant lagoon. A bridge crosses over the center. Sand and grass areas in both sun a shade around lagoon. Pool has concrete bottom that looks like sand.

This is a safe place to swim for children. There aren't any stingers. The lagoon is across from the ocean. My visit was before the cyclone. I don't know if there was any damage to the lagoon.

This lagoon is well kept and spacious, clean and well staffed with lifeguards on duty. There are plenty of spots to throw a towel down and soak up some NQ sunshine.

A nice alternative to swimming in the ocean on days where the ocean is not safe to swim. Really neat concept, like a big resort right in town. Nice picnic areas. Close to grocery store and shops. Enjoyed relaxing in and next to the Lagoon!

The lagoon was beautiful and was a great place to go for a swim and relax. Would be a great place for kids. The view over the bay was lovely.
