EEveryone loves a little beach time and it’s even better if you don’t have to share it with a crowd. Book a trip for the family and try one of these “secret” spots.
Hamburg, Eastern Cape
At the mouth of the Keiskamma River in the Eastern Cape, you will find Hamburg which was first settled on by British-hired German legionnaires, which explains how it got its name. Today it's just a sleepy little hollow on the coast, about 90km from East London, with a pristine beach and river, and where the local backpackers offer guided canoe trails, hiking, fishing and chilling.
Strandfontein, Western Cape
Not to be confused with a beach of the same name in False Bay within the precincts of the City of Cape Town, this tiny village up the West Coast is something of an undiscovered jewel. Its chief attraction is a beautiful curve of beach to stroll along at sunset. It is about 280km from Cape Town, and about 7km up the coast from the only marginally larger Doringbaai.
