Three Best Beach in Cape Town, South Africa

Cape Town

Cape Town is the one of the beautiful city in the world. Table Mountain is to Cape Town as the Statue of Liberty. Cape Town is incredibly beautiful, a shining city between mountains and the ocean. The architecture suits the land – pastel houses with Dutch-style facades are terraced up the side of the mountain. Even in the winter, temperatures are pleasant.

Camps Bay Beach
Camps Bay Beach is a broad stretch of palm tree-lined white sand bordering the bracing waters of the Atlantic ocean. Set at the foot of a spectacular series of mountain peaks, the Twelve Apostles, yet only 10 minutes from the city center by car, it is one of Cape Town's most popular beaches. It is not a sheltered beach, so if the wind is blowing it is advisable to head for Clifton , another breath-taking and more secluded beach just around the corner. The beachside road has a festive atmosphere with a good variety of cafes and restaurants offering great sea views.
Camps Bay Beach very suitable for family tour and in this beach, they can serve the best seafood in Cape Town.

Clifton Beach
Clifton Beach is made up of 4 coves and the beaches are called 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th. When the summer south-easter blows, the Clifton beaches are usually well sheltered from the wind. All of the beaches are accessible via stairs leading down from the road above. In summer, plan to get to the beach early as parking is very limited. Generally 4th is the busiest in summer with good changing room and bathroom facilities. Kiosks on the beach sell snacks, colddrinks and ice-creams as do the many vendors that wander the beach. Deck chairs and umbrellas are also available for daily rental. If you're on a budget and plan on spending alot of time on the beach - buy your own umbrella as this will save you in the long-run.

Clifton 4th is a Blue Flag beach, with the young and the beautiful playing volleyball, throwing frisbees and sunbathing - but mostly trying to look cool. 3rd Beach is frequented by the gay population of Cape Town, while 2nd Beach is the sunning spot of the young bohemians and university students of the city. 1st Beach is the least popular (but no less beautiful) than the other three.

Llandudno Beach

Llandudno Beach must be one of the finest Cape Town Beaches. As you wind your way down to the beach you are treated to the true beauty of this beach, white sand framed by rocky points on either side. Llandudno is great for sunbathing and recreational activities. The views from the beach are spectacular and the water is often a clear tropical blue that’s inviting and refreshing, but rather cool. Stay a little later on the beach and you will be treated to awesome sunsets. If you feel like taking a stroll, there’s a great walk out to the rocks on the right hand side that will give you stunning views looking back at the beach. The waves are powerful and great for surfing. If you are not a strong swimmer do not venture out too far. This is a popular surf spot with a hollow beach break. In Llandudno Beach, it's kinda far away with town but less people will be there, it's a quite and peaceful beautiful beach.
