Attraction Information

Is your child not quite ready for the sea, but you want to introduce them to the water? Check out Tropicana: A pair of heated shallow pools looking out onto the coast of County Down.

With a maximum height of 1.2 meters the Tropicana sea pools are a great place for beginner swimmers. Enter into their warm pools and let your family take a dip without having to brace the chill of the sea. Tropicana is also a great trip for big kids, as there is a twisting yellow slide to keep them entertained. There is also a smaller slide called the elephant for younger visitors.

Being next to the beach you can also take your family to a seawater rock pool. After relaxing in the warm waters you can scout for crabs, little fishes and find hidden wonders washed up on the County Down beach.
