Mahon Pool – Revisited

Heaven on earth, Mahon Pool, Maroubra, warrants a revisit. Christmas Eve 2017 is as good a time as any.

In fact it’s perfect. With a friend from the UK home for an Aussie Christmas and Uber taxi our coastal chariot of choice – does life get any better?

It had been five years since the last review,  so before one peruses the feature post, Mahon Pool, 2012.

It was an early start in the Uber, 7.11am. Destination Mahon Pool – step on it please!

Immersed in the ocean pool 21 minutes later. Life was beautiful.

One of Sydney’s true coastal gems, a secret swimming spot that is kind of no longer a secret swim spot. We had to ‘share’ Mahon pool with 50 others. In Sydney that is not like having to share at all!

Despite minimal sleep and failure to caffeinate before reaching our destination, the swim was the perfect antidote to the forecast mercury reading for the day ahead.

It was for me one of the best swims of 2017, with the best of friends, in the best of the best of Sydney’s ocean pools. And the Uber taxi there and back – the cherry on top!

Post swim we downed two coffees over breakfast back in the city. We boasted to our waiter about our early morning dip at Mahon Pool. Maroubra.

‘What pool?’ the waiter asked, confused.

‘Mahon Pool, Maroubra’

‘I’ve never been to Maroubra’ remarked the waiter, a Sydney resident of 10 plus years.

Mahon Pool Maroubra, or as I like to refer to it, heaven on earth. And prehaps after our exchange with the inner city barista, a secret after all.
