Swimwear Policy

In the interest of Public Health, Health & Safety and the cleanliness of our pool water, appropriate swimwear, made of Polyester or Nylon, must be worn at all times when visiting Sandcastle Waterpark. Guests are not permitted to wear outdoor clothing or footwear of any kind in the pools or on slides. Our swim shack has a wide range of swimwear and towels to purchase.


External clothing is NOT permitted in any of our pools. In the interests of health and safety and providing the best standards of hygiene, guests wearing anything deemed to be classed as non swimwear will be asked to change. Please ensure you read our policy below relating to swimwear.

To minimise time in the Changing Village, wherever possible, please arrive beach ready. Some of our guests, particularly younger guests, arrive with their swimming attire under their clothing, changing is a case of storing all outdoor clothing and bags in your locker and making your way into the Waterpark to enjoy your visit.

When your session in the Waterpark has ended and your wristband colour is called, please make your way to the Changing Village for departure. There are 3 sets of communal showers in the Changing Village and swimwear MUST be worn at all times when using our shower facilities – thank you.
