I live some distance from the coast so it’s not always easy to swim in the sea. We do however have some very nice man made beaches in the UK where a quantity of sand is imported to a lake district and people can have fun with the sand and swim in the lakes. These water parks have many features such as pedaloes, food places etc. and it makes a nice family day out.
However many people do not enjoy swimming in fresh water lakes and prefer the sea. I enjoy both. The picture is from a park in South West England where we go every summer and is only a 30 minute drive from where I live. Are there any beaches like this where you live?
