Let's go swimming without out sand in your pants
Do you love the smell of salty air, feeling the salt on your skin and love a swim without sand in your swimmers? Then you will love the rock pools that are sprinkled along the coast from Coalcliff to Kiama!
Just 45 minute south of Sydney you are spoilt for choice! Find some of the most beautiful and iconic rock pools on the South Coast. Enjoy ocean views and escarpment views at the same time!
Not only are they a perfect alternative to our beautiful beaches, but they are a safe and relaxing experience away from the surf for everyone!
Cut from shelves of rock and fed by the world's most beautiful ocean, they are a gift we and our children get to enjoy almost year-round (if you are brave).
We have checked out most of them for you already and I must say we love them for so many reasons. If you would like to know more details than provided here, please feel free to comment and I will respond to your questions etc. directly.
So, here is my list of the 13 Rock Pools for you (North-South):
Please note that there are no lifeguard services available at the rock pools with the exception of the Continental Pool (Wollongong) and Shellharbour Swimming Pools. Also just be mindful, these are natural pools so you might come across some tiny fish or algae or seaweed occasionally.
Now all you have to do is to go out and explore! Let me know what you think of the pools. If you have any questions feel free to comment directly on this article.
Therev are lifeguards at Austinmer on the beach so that is not accurte or very well researched. Also surely if you mention the continental baths you should mention the iconic rock pool next to it I suggest you revamp this article. You could also mention Thirroul and numerous others.
