I do not mind swimming pools but I would take the beach anytime over a pool. A pool is nice if you don't share it with many people and you need some privacy. I do not like to swim in pools at hotels or public pools in general, I find it kind of disgusting. For the rest, the beach is much better, especially if it is a beach where you can also have your drink etc. Strictly for sunbathing, I still prefer the beach, there is nothing like hearing the waves hit the beach.

The beach seems appealing but I hate being covered in sand. My vote is for the pool.

I would vote for the beach...just something about hanging on the beach with a cold beverage and maybe a grill with waves crashing over the surf and the sun shining.

Every time I go on vacation to Turkey, Greece or any other sea-side destination, I can't help but be dumbfounded by tourists who spend all day swimming in the nasty chlorinated pools rather than enjoy the crisp, blue sea and sandy beaches. Why even bother going on vacation? You can sit in a pool in your hometown. I simply just never understood.

I live in Hawaii. You can already guess which one I prefer.

Also, I don't go to sunbathe, I go to swim, play, bbq, etc. I can get a tan working outside at home without a shirt.

   This.
I was in Sri Lanka last year, sitting at this amazing beach with crystal clear water. The sort that makes it look like boats are floating in the air. And forty feet behind me was the hotel pool, and everyone seemed to be more interested in that than in the beach. You travel thousands of miles by air and road, get to within forty feet of a beach, and then go for a chlorinated pool? I wont understand..

It's not that simple for me. We have loads of beaches in my country.. when we go down south, it is primarily to enjoy a warmer climate and of course go swimming.. but therefore the pool is also attractive.

Yeah, me to, I've always wondered why you'd go to such places and then just sit by the pool.
So my vote is the sea, nothing like it !

As long as their is plenty of shade and no fee I dont mind both. Depends how crowded its is, and if the pool is a great one. I dont like vast, open beaches with no palmtrees, and I hate crowded pools. Also, if beach, I need a shower nearby, and I hate salt on the skin. That said, I´m no sunbather, hate sunscreen or oil. Oil and sand are a bad combination. I prefer sightseeing and reading under a tree to just hanging around and burning in the sun on holidays. In a typical summer holiday I dont spend more than 2 or 3 days (and then half days each maximum) at the beach in two weeks. Only if I´m in a rented holiday home with an own pool I´d spend more time there.

I can't swim in most pools thanks to the chemicals which make my eyes inflame pretty badly.

When it's really hot in the UK I will swim in one of the local rivers (fresh clean water from unpopulated moorland) which have some great deep pools even in summer. I only go to the beach in the winter when it's pretty much deserted and dogs are allowed. In Spain we have our own pool so I swim in that, usually daily, and only go to the beach with friends.

I like sailing so pools end up being too small usually ! My father is from Brittany and he was a sailing instructor when a student.

The downside of the beach to me is the salt, but the chlorine in pools is not better. Now, having a home with a natural pool, that I would love.

It would all depend on where the beach is. If it is one of the stretches of the Med, where there are hundreds of thousands of people rationed to a few square centimetres of fee-payable pebbles or sand, then the pool sounds more attractive. If it is in a scenic location, not crowded and has good surf, then the beach will win. Fortunately we have some pretty good beaches here in Western Australia.

Lots of places in the US do this now . Much easier on the eyers and hair. Still come out salty though.
I like the beach.

The sound of the waves, the breeze, the relaxing time with family and friends playing boche, whiffleball, or waterskiing.

The pool is ok if all you want to do is get tanked, tanned , and tip your feet in the water. .

Wait... I have to put on a swimsuit?   

So pools are for workouts. The beach is for fun. Then again, I spend at least an hour and a half in the water every day for swim practice, so I don't typically swim "for fun" unless I'm playing around with kids or I'm going for a swim with my dog (who can swim almost as fast as I can!).

In the summer I prefer the pool. It is just way too hit to be sitting on the beach in Miami. Now if it's an all day type thing and we have a tent and some chairs or something then the beach is good. But if it's a 2-3 hour thing to lay out and swim in the summer I prefer a pool especially if it's at a home or my home were it is easy to inside and outside etc..

When it's cooler outside or for 1-2 hours then give me the beach. I guess that's an advantage of living in Miami. I can go to the beach for 2 hours whenever I want.
