Over the years, we've set up camp in many different areas of SAB. I've spent a lot of time near the zero depth sandy area. Sometimes, if our boys are sliding a lot, we set up camp at the base of the slide. Other times, we're over near the kiddie pool that overlooks the lake. I usually avoid the rows of chairs right in front of the volleyball net - a bit too hectic for me.

In the past few years, I decided that the quiet area to the right of the hot tubs - sort of to the left of Beaches N Cream is my favorite area to swim. There's a little waterfall, part of it has a sandy bottom, and it's very rarely crowded at any time of year. And there are a few chairs to the right of that area that offer a nice view of different areas of the pool. It's a central location, but a bit tucked away. Now that all of our boys are strong swimmers, it's a nice spot for us.

A few photos - but don't let it get too crowded!

First, our boys report that the Jib Slide no longer hurts their backs, and we had to literally pull our 6-year-old off it at the end of the day. Here's a photo path from the slide exit to the stairs:

Slide exit:



Hop out of the pool and follow the path:



Here's what you'll see when you get to the end of the path out of SAB:



You'll turn to the right and walk toward the ship:



Then you'll turn to the left and walk along the side of the ship:



Keep walking along side the ship:



Make a U-Turn and head up the stairs!

Thanks for the pics, pixarmom. Looks like nearly a water-park-sized walk for the big slide. But I like your quiet place, since what I like best about Stormalong Bay are the waterfalls!

Awesome photos and info! Just can't help but wonder why the lazy river needs to be so deep in areas? I don't get it.
