Klein River


About four kilometers north of Simon’s Town lies the False Bay suburb of Glencairn, which is home to a beach that is slightly longer and less populated than nearby Fish Hoek Beach. On the southern side of the beach is a tidal pool, where you can enjoy safe swimming

Its calm waters are perfect for cooling down after a hot summer’s day filled with adventuring and exploring. The Stanford Wandelpad walking trail meanders along the Klein River, and is easily accessible from several points. However, a map is available at the local tourism bureau just in case.

**Tip: The bottom of King Street is particularly convenient and an ideal location due to the nearby shaded lawns that make for an incredible picnic spot.
