Thompson’s Bay Beach is widely known as one of the safest beaches in the KwaDukuza Coast to go swimming at because of the lifeguards and shark nets. At Thompson’s Bay Beach you will find a tidal pool called “Charlie’s Pool”. This tidal pool is the size of an Olympic pool. The early settlers of KwaZulu-Natal built it. There is a natural rock formation that has a narrow pathway, which will lead you onto the private beach.
