Stormalong Bay is only open if the lifeguards are on duty. There are quiet pools that are open basically 24 hours a day. I think SAB is different because of the size, layout, and depth. There are places that are maybe 8 feet deep and many places that can’t be seen unless you are in that certain area. At most pools you can see the whole pool from about any chair near the pool, SAB isn’t that way and a child could get in trouble and a parent who is just sitting in a chair may not see their child is in danger.
