Sea Point Pavilion Swimming Pool

Important Notice Please Read

Swimmers Guide is not connected with any of the facilities listed on this site in any way. We cannot tell you the pools’ opening and closing times or when Senior Aerobics classes are held; we cannot tell you about the availability or cost of swimming lessons; we cannot get you discounted admission to swim at any of them; and we cannot help you find your children’s lost goggles or bathing suits.

We can and do try to give you reliable information about the pools, their locations, their admission policies, and their single-visit or casual swimming prices. Where possible, we include hypertext links to the pools’ own official websites and Facebook pages, clickable email addresses, and links to the websites of the clubs and teams that swim there. Look to those resources within each listing for more detailed information.

The data in the site is under continual review and is revised whenever the site’s editor becomes aware of a change, but, with more than 20,000 listings, a complete, periodic review of every listing takes about seven years to complete; in many places, prices will change four or five times before we have a chance to check the pool’s official website again.

For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us. There is an "Edit" button on just about every line of every listing, click on the edit button to tell us what needs to be changed. (No, it's not a place for you to ask us questions. What we have in each listing is the latest news we have.)

Also, please consider checking the listings of the pools you regularly use at home or when traveling, as your knowledge may be helpful to someone else who is unfamiliar with the area and visiting for the first time. Just go to the Add a Pool section of the site, read the first page, then fill out the questionnaire.

Facility Reviews

The water temperature depends on whether the south-easter is whipping the water up.
Beautiful view of the bay and of Table Mountain. Clean pool water, filtered from the ocean, but chilly in winter-spring months. Locker rooms are not the cleanest but usable - bring a lock. Best pool in Cape Town.
The locker rooms have been fully renovated and are now kept clean.

I swam here during the New Year's season while in Cape Town. It is one of the worst kept pools I've encountered anywhere in the world. The view is nice - but that's hardly relevant when swimming laps. The water was very dirty and cloudy; you could barely see what was in front of you.

I went to the pool to train during the day, but it was too crowded with holiday goers. A few days later, I returned at 7 AM when the pool opened and had a very pleasant swim. The water was clear and the temperature is comfortable in summer. The cloakrooms are reasonably clean, but could be better.
