Soetwater Tidal Pool

Part of an overnight camping area run by the City of Cape Town, this pool provides a safe place to swim along a wild and rocky shoreline. Soetwater is a basic but clean campsite with the most incredible position right on the sea.  You'll need to bring all your own camping gear and food but the location alone makes it totally worthwhile.


Full ablution facilities open at all times

No day visitors but you might be able to wrangle an entrance at the gate
