your feet squeak in the sand its so white, clean and soft. Go down a little later in the afternoon when the real locals pop down, like 3 / 4 pm and get a good afternoon back. Finish that off with a breathtaking sunset that Cape Town is famous for.

This is really a worthwhile stop. Sparkling water, soft sand, sun and surf. Beautiful beach, without a doubt.

My favourite beach in Cape Town. Water is freezing but the setting is stunning. Full of locals as well as tourists

Clifton Beach in Sea Point area is no longer what it used to be. It was a disappointment to revisit it. There are far better beaches to visit along the Garden Route.

These are the perfect beaches smaller ones) when the Souteastern is blowing because it is sheltered. White sand, turkoise waters, clean and safe. Parking can be difficult on weekends and there are steps to reach the beach. Water is very cold so swimming would be difficult

I drove by and stopped several times. The beauty can not be beat. The water was cod, and I mean cold, but with appropriate wet suits surfing and kite sailing become a possibility -- at least that is what I was told by my colleaguues who went out

This beaches is good for swimming and with its beautiful white beach, people love to tan here in the sun.
