This is a safe way to swim in the ocean. Once you find it and get in you don't want to get out again. It gets very busy in the holiday season, but was never heaving during the early morning. We would recommend wearing sea...More

Lush swimming in this safe and relatively warm tidal pool. It's close to, but hidden from the main road at Kalk Bay. As a result it is not overcrowded. It's been a regular swimming and reading spot for us. Interesting, smooth rocks and shallow areas...More

Its a tidal pool and sort of hidden away so you can always have a leisurely swim . Easy to walk to from a variety of parking spots. Near to the lovely restaurants of Kalk Bay.

A beautiful tidal pool between Kalk Bay and Fish Hoek. Regularly cleaned and maintained. Stunning views of Fish Hoek and of the mountains across the bay. A wonderful place for an early morning swim in the summer months. Sadly no shower or ablution facilities.

A lovely tidal pool to dip in on a walk from Kalk bay to Fishhoek. However, stay away in public holidays as it tends to get a bit over used. Also, try and swim after high tide when the sea has refreshed the water.
