The Baja Shelf – Shallow In-Pool Lounge Area

Baja Shelf Swimming Pool Feature - Clarity Pool Service of Las Vegas, Nevada

Learn About the Baja Shelf or Sun Shelf

If your idea of time at the pool includes lounging, relaxing, and soaking up some sun rays, then the Baja Shelf is your feature. The Baja Shelf is also known as a tanning ledge, Tanning Shelf, Baja Ledge, or a sun shelf. The Baja Shelf is an expansive shallow-water step or ledge within your pool that can range anywhere from 3″ – 18″ in-depth, depending on your aesthetic and functional preference. The Tanning Shelf design is good for one thing, and that’s cooling down in shallow depths. This custom swimming pool feature has become extremely popular here in Southern, Nevada. It’s not uncommon for homeowners to designate a few waterproof lounge chairs on the Baja shelf. The lounge chairs rest slightly submerged within the pool that enables you to sunbathe comfortably.

The Baja Shelf is perfect for homeowners that like to max and relax in the sun but enjoy splashing a little water on themselves to cool down. Anyone that has spent a summer here in Las Vegas, Nevada, will tell you that regular cool-downs when at the pool are a must. With a Baja Shelf, there’s no need to get up if you have waterproof lounge chairs on the Baja Shelf. We’ve included some visual examples of a Baja Shelf for you to use as a reference.
