Cape Town, one of my favorite beaches

Camps Bay is the premier tourist destination in Cape Town, South Africa, and is magnificently located on the Atlantic Ocean, at the foot of the Twelve Apostles moutain range and adjacent to Table Mountain. Camps Bay is a suburb of Cape Town, with a village feel, offering a convenient location only 15 minutes drive to the city center, 20 minutes from the V&A Waterfront, 30 minutes from the airport, 40 minutes from the Cape Winelands and 60 minutes from Cape Point. You can safely walk to the Camps Bay beachfront during the day.

Llandudno Beach is one of the Cape’s most beautiful beaches, surrounded by large granite boulders and overlooked by moutains. It is a popular surfing spot, but the swimming can be treacherous, with rough seas and extremely cold water. Llandudno has lifeguards on duty during the summer season, operated by the Surf Lifesaving club. It is also the access point for the walk to Sandy Bay, an isolated beach still popular with nudists.

Bakoven Beach is small and protected by locals, but its natural beauty and the combination of big boulders and white sands make it a superb haven for sundowners, and its little coves protect it from the wind. You are only 10 minutes away from the V&A Waterfront and the city centre here, and yet if you are staying on the beach side of Victoria Road with its attractive seaside bungalows, you could be mistaken for assumming that you are miles from the city.

Clifton Beach has a set of 4 beaches which are frequently used destinations for both locals and tourists. The beaches, which are named from 1st to 4th, are separated by falls of granite boulders and have almost pure white granitic sand. The four beaches of Clifton are one of the few areas well protected from the notorious south-easterly wind, which has a great deal to do with its popularity with bathers. Fourth beach is the most populated and glamorous venue, attracting families. Third beach is the smallest beach. Second beach is populated by students playing beach volleyball and beach bats. First beach, draws a mixed crowd of locals and surfers. Clifton Beach was noted as one of Discovery.com’s best beaches by region.
