THE best way to cool down during this heatwave is heading straight to an outdoor swimming pool.
As temperatures soar past 30C, beaches and lidos have seen huge crowds in recent days.

Despite restrictions having lifted this week, some families may still feel nervous to be around large groups of people.
Thankfully there are a number of outdoor pools which don’t see the crowds, due to be less popular than their more famous counterparts.
Website ShowersToYou.co.uk has rounded up the quietest outdoor pools by seeing which ones are tagged the least on Instagram, suggesting fewer daily guests.
Here are the lidos to add to your list before the warm temperature disappears, where you won’t have to fight for a sun-lounger.
