A beautiful shade of turquoise water, high white limestone cliffs and lush greenery. This lagoon, which is used to quarry, is a unique place - a beautiful, but also dangerous.
There is a small swimming pool on the site, which is guarded by water rescuers.
The rest of the lagoon is not guarded, and as soon as someone wants to swim outside the designated area, he does it at his own risk, so they sometimes drown. Despite this, the charms of this place uses a large group of amateurs bath water and sun. There is no sandy beach or grass, and there are ledges that are frequently crowded.
On the lagoon is Kraken Diving Centre, which offers scuba diving education, and by the way underwater "sightseeing" of this unique place. In the waters of the reservoir there was submerged excercise platform, wreck of Duzy Fiat, the former changing rooms of workers, wreck of Bus and Antonow aircraft. It is also a granite plaque commemorating Karol Wojtyla, who during World War II, he worked in the former quarry.

Tak, podzielę się wrażeniami, ale z lektury tego pomnika "polszczyzny alternatywnej", bo to dopiero wywiera niezapomniane wrażenie - nie jakaś tam plaża: Np. "piecze strzegą ratownicy" - Taa... A może "strzygą pieczeń"? (Z jednego takiego barana... )
