What Makes a Perfect Pool Tanning Ledge

Lounge in Luxury with a Pool Tanning Ledge

After a long stretch of rainy days and chilly weather, nothing beats lounging poolside on sunny days. An inground pool tanning ledge creates the ultimate oasis right in your backyard. This in-pool extension becomes perfect for relaxing and soaking up the sun.

A tanning ledge is like bringing a resort into your backyard. The shelf creates a sunbathing area built right into the pool. The ledge is underwater but shallow enough to lounge on and easy to get in and out.

A tanning ledge, or a sun shelf, can be long extended steps or a wide extended platform typically 12″ deep.

Ideal Spot for Relaxation

An inground pool tanning ledge is the center of relaxation and luxury, offering a perfect space to unwind and soak up the sun while staying comfortably cool in crystal-clear waters. Here’s why it’s ideal for relaxation.

Tranquil Oasis

The tanning ledge is a tranquil oasis within your backyard, where you can escape the hustle and bustle of daily life. As you lie down on the shallow, submerged platform, you’re surrounded by the soothing sounds of gently lapping water and the beauty of your pool and its surroundings.

Immersed in Nature

You feel connected to nature with your body partially submerged in the pool water. You can listen to the chirping birds, feel the warm breeze, and enjoy the scent of blooming flowers, enhancing the relaxation experience.

Ultimate Comfort

Tanning ledges are designed for maximum comfort. Add cushioned lounge chairs or comfortable pool floats to provide a soft and supportive surface for reclining. You can lay back, close your eyes, and let the world’s worries disappear.

Stay Cool

One of the best features of a tanning ledge is the ability to stay cool and refreshed even on scorching summer days. You can dangle your feet in the water or submerge yourself up to your waist, allowing you to keep cool while tanning and simply relax.

Stress Reduction

Being surrounded by water has a calming effect on the mind. The gentle motion of the pool water, the warmth of the sun, and the peaceful atmosphere help reduce stress and promote mental well-being.

Sit back, relax, read a book, sip a refreshing drink, or float and daydream. It’s your paradise for relaxation; the right inground pool tanning ledge offers endless possibilities.

Get a Sun-Kissed Glow

When tanning ledges are strategically placed to receive ample sunlight, the sun’s gentle rays will give you a beautiful sun-kissed glow without the need for long exposure, and you can achieve that perfect tan without having to move around too much.

Kid and Pet Friendly

A pool tanning ledge creates the ultimate kid-friendly relaxation spot. As tanning ledges are typically shallow, they are safe for people of all ages, including children and older adults. You can relax with your family, knowing everyone can enjoy this feature safely.

Build a large tanning ledge to accommodate lounge chairs and space for children and pets to join the fun. This way, you can relax and watch them with safety in mind.

Social Space

The tanning ledge can also serve as a social space. You can invite friends over for a leisurely afternoon, a nighttime bash by the pool, or enjoy a romantic evening with a loved one as you watch the sunset from this serene setting.
