I opted not to have a dip, I got changed but chose just to dip toe as did not feel comfortable as only person there and did not feel that clean. Partner (male) enjoyed having a swim in pool which public can view

It has been kept very clean and there are separate bathing areas for males and females. We were able to only look around and did not have time for dip.

This does not have a beach.. It is just the hot springs which you can bathe in. The water is warm. You have to park next door and walk over which is just a 2 minute walk.
