Long Street Baths
Fancy a swim in an historic, circa-1908 swimming pool? If you’re keen for a change from sea and sand, head to the Long Street Baths, on the corner of Long and Orange streets in the Cape Town city centre, for an old-world bathe.
The early 20th-Century building also houses original Turkish baths, with steam and dry-heat facilities, and a massage available on request to complete the beneficial treatment.
Over the years the pool and buildings have been upgraded without detracting from the original charm of the facility. A 25m-long heated indoor pool allows swimmers to keep their training on track throughout the year. The baths have separate male and female changerooms.
The pool is open daily from 07h00 to 19h00. Call ahead to make use of the Turkish baths facility.

The Oude Molen Eco-Village is located on the site known as Valkenberg East, near the Cape Town suburb of Pinelands. It’s nestled in large, park-like gardens bordered by sensitive wetlands lining the Black River.
