Swimming in pools
In Halmstad, a dip in the sea is a natural thing. However, if you want to swim in a pool, the options are just as good. We have salt water pools, amusement parks and indoor pools.
Get your swimsuit on and take a dip. Inside or out. Fresh water or salt water. Quiet or adventurous. No matter what you like, there's something for you here.
