"After scrambling over a few boulders and making my way down a trail, Miller’s Point tidal swimming pool comes into view. Located on a wild stretch of South Africa’s False Bay, a man-made rock wall encloses the inviting pool, keeping out all but the biggest waves. Despite the fact we’ve just driven past a penguin colony, my Cape Town mates tell me I am still on the warmer, Indian Ocean side of the Cape of Good Hope."
