Sea Point Pavillion Swimming (Sea Point)

Overlooking the dazzling Atlantic Ocean, this impressive swimming pool is one of Cape Town’s most prized and loved public spaces – attracting Capetonians and tourists from all walks of life. There are four pools, each catering for different types of swimmers. There’s the Olympic-sized pool for the pros; the two smaller, shallow pools, which are perfect for kids to splash around in; and the single diving-board pool, where you can attempt to master the elusive “flying squirrel and somersault” dive.

The iconic landmark, which dates back to the 1950s, uses fresh seawater, which means it’s open for business year-round – drought or not!
