This is our far from complete listing of ocean pools (usable pools and ghost pools) in clockwise sequence along South Africa’s coast beginning with province of KwaZulu–Natal. Please remember that only some of South Africa’s tidal pools fit our definition of an ocean pool.
images of some of South Africa’s ocean pools are also available in our Flickr collection about South Africa’s ocean pools.
Please contact All into Ocean Pools Inc if you:
- have information on other South African ocean pools that should be added to this list, or
- can provide more information about one or more of the pools on this list.
