The coastal areas of South Africa play host to a multitude of exciting adventure activities, such as cage diving in Gansbaai or racing down the sand dunes in Cape Town. In short; the beach front is where you will want to be. As summer winds down into mild autumn weather the beaches will soon be visited less, but until then, here is a list of five great beaches to visit around the country:
1. Clifton Beach
One of the Mother City’s favourite beach spots, the strip of Clifton
beaches numbered one to four is where you go to do one of two things:
lounge in the sun or surf the waves. The icy water is not ideal for
swimming, but many individuals brave the cold temperatures to escape the
hot African sun. Cape Town boasts a plethora of beautiful beaches, and
other notable beach sites to visit include Muizenberg, Kalk Bay, the
nudist Sandy Beach as well as Bloubergstrand.
2. Jeffery’s Bay
Home to the biggest, most exhilarating waves, Jeffery’s Bay is an
earthly paradise to every surfing enthusiast. As the unofficial surfing
capital of the country, it’s no surprise that this alcove happened to be
the main filming location for the sequel to the successful surfing
film, Blue Crush.
3. Grotto Beach
This picturesque beach in Hermanus is a favourite for whale watching.
It is easily accessible and hosts a range of spectacular restaurants and
beach facilities, all pleasantly set against cascading white dunes and a
grassy mountain side.
This coastal port city of KwaZulu Natal plays host to a number of
vibrant, colourful beaches. Along the East coast of South Africa runs
the warm current of the Indian Ocean and the beaches dotted along
Durban’s coast offer pleasantly warm waters.
Known as South Africa’s hub for great white shark cage diving, this quaint coastal area also offers svelte stretches of white sandy beach peppered with huge dunes and mountainous hillsides.
