I rediscovered the Sea Point Pavilion pools yesterday! The seawater pools include an Olympic-sized filtered pool and two smaller pools, one for children and one for experts.
Remember the Pavilion from years ago when I first lived in Cape Town. It’s still fantastic! Located on the beachfront overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, the pools are not heated but open to swimmers year round. The crowd is diverse and includes professional and recreational swimmers of all ages.
It’s a bit hot for strenuous hiking, so swimming is a great way to cool down and exercise.
