Because Life is Better at the Beach

Cape Town has some of the best beaches the world has to offer. However, the water – especially on the Atlantic side – is really cold! The Atlantic Seaboard beaches are white and sandy, offering beautiful views and splendid sunsets. These beaches also enjoy longer sunshine than the False Bay Coast, which has a more laidback atmosphere. The water in False Bay is also warmer, and the shallow waters extend quite far, making for safe and enjoyable swimming.



This is possibly Cape Town´s most glamorous beach. It has four adjoining coves, well-sheltered from the wind, where you walk down stairways among luxurious bungalows leading to white sands. Generally, the 4th Beach is the busiest in summer, with good changing rooms and bathroom facilities. Vendors sell cold drinks, snacks and ice-creams. Beach chairs and umbrellas available for hire.

Camps Bay

The perfect place for sundowners, with many restaurants along the beachfront. The Twelve Apostles make a stunning mountain backdrop. It´s also a family beach, but with a dangerous break and rapid drop-off just beyond the waterline.

Atlantic Seaboard



A small, romantic beach, tucked  in a rock enclave en-route from Camps Bay to Hout Bay. As one of the  most beautiful, sheltered beaches, this is a great place for sports and families.

Atlantic Seaboard



Muizenberg was a town of glitz and glamour in the 50s and 60s. Today it’s become a sleepy sea-side town, though many of the elegant mansions of yesteryear still adorn the mountainside. The sandy beach is long, offering ample space for fun and games. The facilities are good, too. Behind the beach you’ll find cafés & eateries as well as surf shops and surf schools (Muizenberg is a popular surfer’s joint). The beachfront, bordered by colourful huts, offers some wind protection.

Boulders Beach

A tiny Beach near Simon’s Town, here you have the chance to hang out with penguins if lucky. The main penguin colony is right on the other side. The beach is comprised of a number of small coves surrounded by large boulders. There is an entrance fee, which goes towards paying for the conservation of those endangered African Penguins that live here.

Table Bay beaches

The popular beaches of Blouberg, Table View & Big Bay, offer some of the most beautiful and most-photographed Table Mountain views. These beaches are really safe for kids, and become a paradise for wind surfers and kite-surfers once the breeze picks up. They’re also ideal for long walks, evening sundowners, and relaxing picnics. During whale-season – Mid-August to Mid-October – Blouberg beaches make excellent whale-watching viewpoints. Big Bay also offers its new shopping experience: “Eden on the Bay”, which lies directly on the beach. Here you’ll find unique boutiques and quite a spread of restaurants & cafés. Secret tip: Go fossil shark teeth hunting on the Woodbridge island side.
