  • We ask that all customers arrive beach ready with your swimming costume already on underneath your clothes if possible.
  • Come ready to swim and please change and shower at home.
  • You’ll need to bring your own equipment, like googles and floats, if you have them and please make sure they are clean and identifiable as yours before you arrive.
