Dalebrook Tidal Pool (Kalk Bay)

Tucked between St James and Kalk Bay lies this easily missed – and often overlooked – tidal pool. To get to it, simply walk along the subway under the railway line. It’s one of the most beautiful pools along the coast, as it seamlessly melds into the ocean (as the eye skips over the low wall), but it’s best to get there in the early morning, as it loses the afternoon sun behind the mountains.

The low wall means that the water is kept clean with a constant flow of fresh water breaking over the wall’s edge. It’s also a good whale-watching spot.

Useful to know, is that there’s an outdoor shower and a changing room.
