Beach Entry

Bring the beach to your backyard

Beach entry pools, also called zero entry pools, mimic the seamless entry into an ocean from dry land – without the sand.

A shallow-end beach entry and merging of formal and traditional design to align with the textures of the home.

About Beach Entries

Built on the shallow end of your pool, the beach entry gently slopes into the water. Beach entry pools often require more space to build than a traditional pool. While beach entries may increase the cost of your pool, there are many benefits to this pool feature. 

Benefits of a Beach Entry Pool

  • Beach entries provide an innovative alternative to enter your pool. It is the ideal design for people with limited mobility and is easy on joints.
  • The large shallow entrance provides a splash area for children to safely enter the pool and play.
  • When the sun is out, a beach entry provides a spot to tan while keeping part of your body submerged in the water.
  • Zero entry pools provide a beautiful aesthetic for your backyard and give you a variety of options for landscaping ideas.
  • Adding a sunset shelf is another option, if you would like a gradual entry to the pool that is large enough to place chairs or loungers partially in the water.
