Rather similar to Buffels, this is also a neat and tidy pool in the Cape Point Nature Reserve, ideal for those wanting a protected swimming spot with incredible views. Come for the day and enjoy a hike before settling down for a picnic next to the pool.  Probably one of the Cape Peninsula's most beautiful bits of unspoiled coastline. 


Full ablution facilities open daily


SPECIAL NOTE:  Please be very aware of the baboons.  They are notoriously aggressive and will target your picnic.  They are not scared of women and slightly more wary of men (but not necessarily), please be aware of them especially when you have food out as they will aggressively run at you to try and take your food.
