Can someone identify this finish?

We are renting a vacation house for a week. The pool has a finish with what looks like tiny black specs. It is tearing my youngest sons feet up and has cut me once. Not a finish I want! Just curious if anyone knows what it is?88A9FF7C-9B69-42CC-9A35-CEF799FB7276.jpeg

It's exposed aggregate aka pebble finish.

My pool has it and while it's not tearing up our feet, my kids and I did get bruised few times when brushed against the walls or floor.

Hard to tell through those reflections. Can you get a better pic of the plaster around the water line?

Probably some type of pebble finish with lots of black stones added.
