  • I love this place! It was really beautiful to see how powerful the Atlantic ocean. The surge happened to be high that day. It was incredibly beautiful and peaceful. Also, it was kind of cool to see all of the vendors selling stuff. They can be a bit aggressive, but that's any street vendor. It was cool though- visit if you can!
  • The white sand is BEAUTIFUL!! The water is crystal blue, clean and just amazing to look at as it washed over the shore. I would definitely recommend this beach for anyone on a trip to Cape Town, the location is also great because it's close to a lot of restaurants, hotels and public transport. It's a great spot to go to for some relaxation, just bring some warm clothes because it can get very windy and chilly towards the end of the day
