Nordnes Sea Bath
Nordnes Sea Bath (Nordnes Sjøbad) is situated at the north-western tip of the Nordnes peninsula, in the Nordnesparken park, close to the Aquarium. It has pools for swimming and playing, and you might dive and swim in the fjord if you are comfortable with the temperature. During July and August the sea temperature is warmer than you would believe!
There are pools and lawns for sunbathing and children’s playing too.
In 2017 the bath opens for summer at 18th May, and closes medio September.
