Cape Town has many ocean pools, from Miller’s Point in Simon’s Town to Wooley’s in Kalk Bay, and 2 of them have been added to a list of Condé Nast Travellers’ 14 prettiest ocean pools in the world.

 

Western Cape, South Africa (18 July 2022) – Two South African ocean pools have made it onto a list of the prettiest in the world, and we couldn’t be prouder!

Ocean pools or ocean baths are defined as public seawater pools sited on a rocky surf coast so that waves can wash into the pool. The width, length and depth of ocean pools vary and often depend on their location on the coastline.

Visitors are surprisingly spoiled for choice when it comes to seawater pools on Cape Town’s coasts. This one found along the Atlantic Seaboard is surrounded by stunning panoramic shots of Table Mountain and the Twelve Apostles. It’s recommended to go in the late afternoon to enjoy the sun dip directly in front of the infinity edge and afterwards, book a table at one of the many restaurants a short walk away.

Everyone knows Cape Town has some of the most beautiful beaches in the world, but its ocean pools are one not to overlook. One of the most celebrated in the region, this tidal pool stunningly contrasts the white sandy beach with its emerald-turquoise colours fed by the Atlantic and Indian waters. It’s a popular destination due to its ease of accessibility, and it’s great for safe swimming with the family.

What do you think? Was this the right choice… or should another South African tidal pool have taken the top spot?
