BEACHES

Blouberg:

2 Beaches. Little Bay and Big Bay both an absolute pleasure on a wind free day. Big Bay is better known as a Wind surfer paradise on those windy days.

Camps bay

Excellent family venue with a tidal pool near the BBQ facilities. Eateries abound along the coastline.

Clifton

4 Small beaches on the “Platinum Mile”, extremely well protected from the South Easter. The beaches become extremely crowded during season time and parking a near impossibility. Out of season the beaches are a must for every visitor to our shores.

Hout Bay

An extremely safe beach with interesting shops, eateries and ablution facilities. Beautiful on a wind free day.

Noordhoek

Horse rides and sunset walks. Stunning stretch of beach not to be missed. Wreck of the Kakapo.

Strand

Long very flat and safe swimming. Plenty of eateries along the beach road and ablution facilities at regular intervals.

Tableview

Very popular beach for kiting, a stunning long stretch of beach where the sea can become really rough when the wind blows.
