Die Swemgat

Dassen Island Drive

Almost at the end of Dassen Island Drive is a little hidden oasis the locals call Die Swemgat.

This Rock Tidal pool is very popular due to its crystal clear water and secluded unspoilt location. Pack in the bathers and the sunscreen and enjoy a relaxing day at the beach. Enjoy the scenic ride along Pearl Bay. On route you are sure to find an abundance of wildlife, antelopes, dassies, birdlife and our infamous ostrich population. Stay clear of the Ostriches and other wild animals. Although they might act tame, respect their space, they are still wild animals.
