The first thing you'll notice about Strandfontein is that it is enormous. It competes with Monwabisi, just further along Baden Powell Drive, for the title of largest tidal pool in the southern hemisphere.
The pool is encircled by a large pavilion and provides various amenities. The pool is fairly shallow throughout, which makes it ideal for children.
Full ablution facilities are available and it's open from 8am to 5pm.
