Maidens Cove Tidal Pool

Maidens Cove has two tidal pools hidden between enormous granite boulders overlooked by a picnic site and Lions Head. This recreational space has a special history as it was one the few beaches where non-white residents of Cape Town could come and enjoy a day at the sea in a whites-only area before 1994.


Full ablution facilities and picnic areas open from 8am to 5pm
