leisure sunbathing node area an outdoor location where people can wiktionary:sunbathe  


There is no currently a standard way to tag an outdoor location (probably designated) where people can practice sunbathing. Swimming and bathing suggests using landuse=grass to tag a lawn for sunbathing which is actually more suitable for a lawn in general than for a sunbathing area specifically.

Such locations can be usually found next to swimming and bathing areas like beaches and swimming pools, for example at a leisure=beach_resort. But they can also be located somewhere else there is no accessible beach or even access to the water available.


  • a designated sunbathing area at the park in Moscow. There are some sunshades installed. Albeight it is located next to a pond, there is no beach there, there isn't a suitable descent to the water and swimming is prohibited there
