This little "enclave" cement pool in the Ocean should only be attempted at High Tide, You should stand on the back of the pool wall and let the wave take you in, its too much fun & enjoyment, my best pool in the Ocean ever. It is a quaint little pool. If you have small children they would enjoy playing in the pool whilst you sit on the wall on the side.
Do not go on 26 December or 1 January of the New Year. The masses descends here as these two days are National Beach days for may working class people who can only get OFF of work these two days & then the beach strips are unpleasantly FULL.

we thought we had a chance of seeing whales here. Forget it, the locals told us. But a nice little town

This is one of my favorite walks. Stunning views on all sides. Fresh sea spray in our face. Friendly smiles everywhere. Loads of rock pools to explore. On the way back to the car we took the upper road and admired the elegant architecture, stopped for a drink, browsed through some stores. Great afternoon.

Walking along the beach path, next to the train track and beach, with amazing views all around. The boulders on the beach are home to a variety of bird species as well

Although the beach is not too attractive, it was worth stopping for some colourful photos, since the colourful beach hut are not to miss. Swimming is also possible in a large pool and parking in the near is no problem either.

I went to the beach every day while I was in Cape Town, nice and close to my accommodation, I had mornings there while others walked along the beach, it also has a nice running trail along the sea way, beautiful, clean and awesome waves for surfing! Also felt very safe as a lady travelling solo :)

It is quite full when the weather is good and could get a little rowdy at times too. Tidal pool is safe and large and many families frequent this beach

Ps, park close to the station

Ideal place to take your family to spend the day. Very safe tidal pool. Convenient beach chalets for free but have to be early to reserve one. Can be become very crowded in Summer but get there early and leave when the crowds arrive.
