Denmark's first sea pool opened in Nørre Vorupør near Thy in northern Jutland on Saturday, making it safer for bathers to take a swim in the rough waters.

Vesterhavet, which the Brits at the other side call the North Sea, has long lured tourists and locals into its wild and salty waters, but dangerous rip currents and tall waves make swimming there a risky affair.

Beach for tourists
The new sea pool measuring 50 x 50 metres is very similar to the Islands Brygge Harbour Bath in Copenhagen, but backs out onto an actual beach. It remains secluded from the sea by a wall with hatches that allow for a fresh inflow of water, and it is surrounded by promenades along three sides and a tranquil beach on the other. 

The local council hopes that the sea pool will draw more tourists and investors to the area.

The sea pool doesn't officially open until August 15, so in the meantime, its first guests may have their idyllic view ruined by bulldozers and steel fences left on the site.
