Swimming and bathing
|Feature : Swimming and bathing|
|Anything related to swimming and bathing activities|
In general we have the water area of a swimming pool and the facility itself. The facility can be swimming or bathing oriented. A Way is drawn around the perimeter (including meadow, playgrounds and buildings).
Nature baths with no facilities or signage
We don't map nature baths without signage (it is not verifiable) other than the surface, e.g. sand, rock and the paths/roads leading to it. There must be a sign as a bare minimum to tag it using the tags below.

The water park is distinguished from the swimming facility by features like water slides and advanced pools with artificial currents and by the fact that it is not suitable for doing swimming as a sport. It can be both outdoor and indoor.

A facility where you can go and take a bath, e.g. an onsen, a hot spring, a hammam or a thermal bath It must have something more than just showers, but I may be anything from bath tubs up to swimming pools. Large bath houses can have outside baths. A fee may be charged for entry. If membership is needed, set access to private. Tag the building, and if present also the outside premises with pools.

The beach resorts is distinguished from a bathing beach by the full-fledged service that can include: rental services for sunshades, cabins, lockers and even small cottages. They can be served by lifeguards. That is, beaches can be "upgraded" to beach resorts. Bars, restaurants, parking lots, small shops, toilets and showers inside a beach resort should be mapped separately.
