The Sea Point Pool is regarded as one of the most beautiful public pool amenities and is an inexpensive excursion. This community open-air pavilion facility has a 50m Olympic size swimming pool, two kiddies splash pools and a deep diving pool with springboard diving equipment including a 5m diving board. Built right on the Atlantic Ocean the pools are crystalline, circulated with filtered sea water and minimum chlorine levels.
The Pool itself is view worthy but has a spectacular coastal outlook taken in by both sun-worshippers and recreational or lap swimmers (completely ignored by merrily distracted splashing children). The pools are unheated and open all year round. Home to South Africa's top open-water swimmers who challenge winter cold water temperatures, taking in views of the mountain with a breath to one side and views of Robben Island and the ocean with the opposite inhale.
Weekends and summer holidays are lively so arrive at an enthusiastic hour to claim your sunbathing spot on the lawn or your family retreat under a tree. A small kiosk offers a limited selection of snacks and refreshments or bring your own and take a getaway break poolside.
