What a nice way to keep the body cool in the heat!

Terengganu is signalling the state’s serious effort to maximise its 244km coastal stretch for tourism with its first ‘beach swimming pool’ off the South China Sea.

Despite being warned that the beaches at Terengganu are out of reach for swimmers due to unpredictable currents at sea, the public still do not heed the advice and as a result, many people have drowned. Taking a dip at this beach swimming pool would be much safer and here’s why.

The beach swimming pool will have a rectangular netting secured by buoys to ensure that swimmers are protected from being swept away by strong currents. Even so, we should always stay vigilant and take necessary precautions to keep safe.

What a great idea, though!
