Yes to the boycott but . uhh. big swimming pools right next to the beach? Let’s see. The 4 seasons Kona that we just spent our belated honeymoon at had a big large swimming pool right next to the ocean, several large pools in fact. And the Halekulane (spelling?) in Honolulu had a very nice pool right next to the ocean in Waikiki.
And to be honest, it was much nicer swimming in the pools because the ocean was rough, dangerous due to currents and jellyfish and sea urchins and what not at the 4 seasons. The ocean at the halekulane was better but still there was a side ways current there that dissuaded most from venturing in any distance. And the pool was a known thing. No sharks, no jellyfish , no stepping on sea urchins. So yes, it makes total sense.
