You will find many attractive bathing areas. Beaches along the coast and inland temperatures reach +20 degrees C especially in the south. In the north, temperatures may also be high enough to make swimming possible. Some of the larger hotels have swimming pools or there are leisure centres in many places. Bathing beaches are signposted along the roads - enquire at the local tourist office about bathing places available.

Alternatively, visit one of the many indoor waterworlds, which offer several activities for both children and adults. Some have either outside or inside pools or both but normally offer the following; water slides and shutes, wave machines, activity pools, jaquzzis and sunbeds.
