A dive among the waves

When the sea is calm and the sun is high in the sky, there is nothing better than to freshen up among the waves with your friends. With friends a swim turns into a game with splashing, run-ups, and somersaults.

For an original day, why not try an outing in a pedal boat with your parents? If there is a slide every dive becomes an emotion.

And for the youngest, or those who can’t swim, there are numerous swimming schools in the lidos to learn how to swim directly in the sea.
