Cape Attractions - Cape Town Beaches
• Pristine, white sandy beaches
• Whale watching
• Excellent surfing
• Penguin colony
• Luxury Cape Town beach accommodation
Cape Town offers some of the most spectacular stretches of pristine, white sandy beaches in the world. The cold waters of the Atlantic Ocean make for sparkling, azure waters while the warmer waters of the Indian Ocean on the other side of the Peninsula create perfect conditions for surfers and body boarders alike.
On the Atlantic Seaboard, the beaches of Camps Bay, Clifton and Llandudno are particularly popular, with the majestic mountain range, the Twelve Apostles towering overhead. The waterfront promenade of Camps Bay offers many trendy eateries and bars - definitely the place to see and be seen in Cape Town. The beach is lined with palm trees and provides an excellent spot to view amazing sunsets while enjoying sundowners.
Along the False Bay coast lie the beaches of Muizenberg - a popular surfing spot, St James and Kalk Bay - ideal for whale spotting, and on to Simonstown and the delightful penguin colony at Boulders Beach. Further along the Peninsula lies the undiscovered paradise of Kommetjie and Noordhoek, where you can stroll along the desolate Long Beach or ride horses through the waves.
