Crystal Pools Hike and Swim (Entry level)

(6 customer reviews)

Crystal Pools is a very popular hike close to Gordans Bay. It hosts a series of natural rock pools in a beautiful Valley known as the Steenbras River Gorge, it officially forms part of the Kogelberg Nature Reserve, and the hike follows the Palmiet River up the gorge.


The hike isn’t too strenuous hike but there are inclines and declines so you will work up a good sweat and earn that swim.


We’ll hike to 4 pools, swim when it suits the group progress, have a long break at our favorite pool and return the same route taking breaks when necessary throughout.

    Fantastic hike with Idrees and Coenraad. Even though the weather was not the best, we had a wonderful hike and managed to swim at the pools with no one else around. The professional guiding was awesome and everyone in the group was looked after.
