Always wanted to discover a pool with a natural waterfall? Hike to Crystal Pools also known as Steenbras River Walk and after about 45 minutes you will find the first pool. Next ones are about 15 minutes further. 

Permits (R70) are required to enter the trails which are closed from May to the end of October due to winter flooding. 

Take the R44 south from Gordon’s Bay to Kleinmond, you are at the start of the Whale Route and one the most beautiful scenic drives in the Western Cape, called Clarence Drive. It will bring you along the magnificent Hottentots Hollands Mountains on one side and the ocean coming ashore in False Bay.
