Kalk Bay Tidal Pools

We love the wonderful Tidal Pools that line the stretch of coastline between Muizenberg Beach and Simon’s Town (Cape Town, South Africa). After every high-tide, these pools are refilled with a fresh supply of cool sea-water and provide a perfect place for bathers to enjoy a swim.

Passing by the below pools on two separate runs, we couldn’t help but stop ad admire the beauty that was the water and colour.

These Tidal Pools are extremely popular in the summer-time but it is only a brave few that leap into the winter’s icy waters. Don’t be surprised if you are shown up by an old man or lady from the near by retirement village – going about their daily swim, come rain or shine.

We say jump in – it’s truly invigorating.
