Is all swimming banned?

Swimmmg pools are to shut whether indoors or outdoors. I think this means lakes that you pay to swim in will also be shut. But what about a river or the sea? In the height of the lockdown that was banned too but is it banned again?

Doubtful. They likely assume that the cold weather would put people off sea swimming at this time of year.

They specifically say you can go to the beach and it doesn’t have to be for exercise so I doubt they would frown on sea swimming.

It wasn't banned in the actual legislation in March, no specific words about allowed forms of exercise (no specific words about only 1 exercise outing a day and no specific words about no driving to take exercise) - yet I know what you mean, kayaking or surfing were considered out, too, if you talked to any police officer at the time. Even though the normal principle in law is that something is allowed unless specifically banned. What a mess we live in now.

I missed that. Is the beach the only place you can go just for fun?

“You can exercise or visit outdoor public places with the people you live with, your support bubble, or 1 person from another household.

Outdoor public places include:

parks, beaches, countryside,
public gardens (whether or not you pay to enter them), allotments
playgrounds
You cannot meet in a private garden.“
