​​Tidal pools

Tidal pools are rocky pools built along our coastline that provide a safe, family-friendly place to swim and play.

​​​

Please note

Due to water restrictions, some of our facilities are closed because of limited or no water supply.


If there is a lack of water, we have the right to close a facility, and cancel any bookings. Any payments made will be refunded, unless another facility is available.


Please use water and electricity responsibly. Those who don’t will have their leases terminated and their water and electricity supply cut-off immediately.​
