Fodor's Review

The section of beach near McArthur Baths is great for swimming and very popular. If you'd rather swim in flat water, head for the bath complex (R50, open September–April), which has a range of pools, two of which are heated to a few degrees above sea temperature. There's no natural grass here, however, so you will need to rent a lounge chair (R10) to be comfortable. Amenities: lifeguard, toilets, showers. Best for: swimming.
