You will enjoy the swimming the moment you find yourself in the water. That's when you forget all worries and realize the uniqueness of the moment. Bring a waterproof camera with you. Important note: If you are waving into the camera, our rescuers may evaluate this as a request for assistance. Please, be aware of this fact.

The water is strong and it could carry you away. if you miss the first stairs, don't worry, there are other stairs only 5 meters away. Once you get out of the water, grab and elbow, not a palm.
