Ocean Pools

Best way to start your day

If you’ve ever had the thought you wish you had flippers instead of feet, you’re likely going to want to scope out our local ocean pools. A quiet dip in one of our four ocean pools is the best way to start your day or wind down with a sunset dip before dinner.

Boat Harbour Ocean Pool

This beautiful, tucked-away ocean pool in Gerringong is a fantastic place to snorkel or swim. It is accessed via a walkway about 50 meters long starting at the Boat Harbour Reserve. The ocean pool floor is natural rock with sandy beach at the shallow end. Boat Harbour offers plenty of parking with basic amenities.

Continental Ocean Pool

A great place for a dip, the pool is situated at the north end of Black Beach Reserve in the Kiama township and is also known as the Olympic Pool. The pool is 50 metres in length with facilities and disable access.

Amenities are available with child changing facilities. Parking is available on Shoalhaven Street.

Kiama Rock Pools

Blowhole Point Ocean Pool

The smaller of Kiama’s two beautiful saltwater ocean pools, this one sits on the edge of the ocean and is a great place for the whole family to enjoy. Spectacularly situated on the north side of Blowhole Point, with access from the harbour road, there is ample parking, amenities and change rooms on site.

The pool has an irregular shape with variable depth and natural rock floor, with a shallow wading area suitable for young children off to the side.

South Werri (Ourie) Ocean Pool

If you are looking for a relaxing place to swim away from the surf, then look no further than the Ourie Ocean Pool at the southern end of Werri Beach.

This is an irregular-shaped pool constructed in the rock shelf at the south end of Werri Beach with access via Pacific Avenue or Geering Street. There is ample parking with change rooms and amenities on site. The pool has a smooth, sloping concrete floor and nearby is a separate concrete-formed children’s wading pool. The pool and surrounding shelf are subject to natural wave action during high tides.
