Sea Point Swimming Pool
Regarded by many as the most breathtaking public swimming pool in the world, the Sea Point Pool complex consists of an Olympic-sized pool, plus two splash pools for children, and a fully equipped springboard diving pool.

Built on the beachfront in Lower Beach Road overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, these filtered seawater pools are part of the scenic Sea Point Pavilion. Although the pools are not heated, the facility is open throughout the year, and a handful of Capetonians persist with their training throughout winter, even when water temperatures drop to about 12 degrees Celsius.

On any given day in summer you’ll find a colourful mix of locals and tourists soaking up the sun, professional and recreational swimmers ploughing up and down the pool, and people of all ages frolicking in the crystal-clear water.

The swimming pool can accomodate up to 1 300 people at a time.
