About Ballito Tidal Pool

The Ballito Tidal Pool is a wonderful day out, no matter if you’re a tiny tot or a grown up. There are two different sized pools, a larger one for adults who’d like to swim in the seam but not out in the open water. The tidal pool in Ballito is a cordoned off area that fills up when the tide comes in. If you’re a tiny tot you can make use of the smaller tidal pool that is ready and waiting for little swimmers.

This is a big family beach and so you’ll often find families enjoying the beach and pools with one another. The pools are also filled with plenty of sea life so you might spot a few mussels or limpets on the pool walls. Be careful not to disturb the sea life though, remind yourself that this isn’t your swimming pool at home, you’re entering their home and so treat the creatures with the same respect you’d like - no one wants to be plucked off the wall while having a nap!
