Maiden’s Cove Tidal Pools (Camps Bay)

Hidden among clumps of rocks, these tidal pools offer spectacular views of the mountain and ocean. Close by, a buzzy restaurant strip beckons, making the prospect of a dip in the pool (or sunbathing on the boulders that surround it) yet another incentive to visit the area.

Maiden’s Cove has a grassy area that’s perfect for a braai or picnic.

Whales and dolphins have been known to pass within sight of the shoreline.

The two largest tidal pools at Maiden’s Cove are located between Glen Beach (a favourite for surfers) and Clifton 4th Beach.
