Merewether Baths

Merewether baths

I can confidently say the Merewether Baths is one of the most enjoyable spots in Newcastle to cool off! The baths offer a mix of sand and rock pools, making it a perfect spot for kids to explore and stay safe while swimming.

What’s great about the Merewether Baths is that there is so much space. Whether you want to take a relaxing swim or get in a few laps, there is plenty of room to do so. The ocean pools are enormous, and there is even a separate area for kids to enjoy themselves.

Parking can be a bit tricky, so I recommend arriving early to secure a spot. However, even if you do end up parking further away, the walk to the baths is scenic and enjoyable. Once you arrive, you can rinse off in the showers, which are conveniently located near the change rooms.

Speaking of the change rooms, they might not be the most glamorous, but they do the job. They’re slightly daggy, but hey, you’re here to swim, not to judge the decor. And let’s be honest, the warm showers make up for any lack of glamour.

One of the best things about the Merewether Baths is the variety of ocean pools to choose from. There are rock pools, sand pools, and lap lanes for swimmers who want to get in a workout. And if you’re lucky, you might even catch some waves crashing in and bringing fresh ocean water into the pools.

The headland views from the baths are truly stunning. As you swim or relax in the water, you can take in the beautiful sights of Newcastle over Merewether Beach. It’s a unique experience that you won’t find at many other swimming spots.

Overall, the Merewether Baths are a fantastic facility that locals and visitors alike should check out. It’s free, offers plenty of space, and has great facilities. And even if the change rooms are a bit daggy, the warm showers make it all worth it. So, next time you’re looking for a place to cool off in Newcastle, head to the Merewether Baths and enjoy all it has to offer.

Kind regards,
