With the sea, the lagoon, the rock pools along the cliff paths, several tidal pools and the Klein River there are obviously many places to swim.

'On-shore' bathing spots include the tidal pool below the Marine Hotel, Fick's Pool on the Westcliff side off Marine Drive, the tidal pool in Vermont; Davies Pool at Onrus River near the camp site; and the lagoons at Grotto Beach and at Onrus Beach.

Hawston has an Olympic sized public swimming pool and there is an aqua centre in Sandbaai which has an indoor pool.
