SSoak up the sun at one of the Western Cape’s most pristine beaches.
Clifton, Cape Town
The four Clifton Beaches in Cape Town are regarded as being among the most beautiful in the world and are home to some of the most sought-after properties in the Southern Hemisphere. The white sands and blue waters have been the subject of countless travel photos over the years.
Boulders Beach, Simon’s Town
At Boulder’s Beach, just outside Cape Town, you can get to know our most famous (and arguably our cutest) birds…the African penguin. You just can’t resist these waddling wonder birds, but that’s a great thing because they love your attention. Beaches here, like Froggy Pond, are popular with locals as they are warmer than the Atlantic beaches and are great swimming beaches. Shallow waters extend quite far out so that swimming and paddling are relatively safe.
Muizenberg Beach, Cape Town
Muizenberg Beach is the ultimate family beach, with its colourful Victorian bathing boxes adding bold hues to the dramatic landscape that has been etched into the minds of beach-going South Africans for decades. It’s also a Blue Flag beach, which means it gets marks for safety, recreational facilities and eco-consciousness.
Camps Bay Beach, Cape Town
Palm-fringed, with platinum blonde sands (and bathers to match), Camps Bay Beach is where the well-to-do and the famous congregate to see, and be seen. This Cape Town beach is all about being gorgeous, from its manicured shoreline overlooked by millionaires’ mansions, to dazzling sunsets and minimalist swimwear.
Lappiesbaai Beach, Western Cape
A long curvy bay (near Stillbaai), which is very popular over the holiday season. Lappiesbaai Beach has been awarded Blue Flag status three years in a row – and no one can argue with that.
