Cape Peninsula Beaches to Play, Stay & Eat , Cape Town

Imagine a bed next to the beach and sand between your toes. Imagine sushi after a surf lesson. Imagine a sunrise swim with Penguins and a deep soft tissue massage after shipwreck scuba diving.  Or just a walk on the beach after a seafood lunch…?

You can imagine , it or you can choose to immerse yourself in it on the Cape Point Route.

The long sandy beach of Hout Bay is ideal for swimming and water sports like Sea Kayaking, Sailing, Fishing, Duiker Island Boat Trips and Surfing.  Here you will see locals walking their dogs, riding horses and families playing at the waters edge.

This pristine stretch of white sandy beach, often called Long Beach, stretches through to Kommetjie.  Noordhoek beach is ideal for long leisurely beach walks, surfing, kitesurfing and horse-riding, or watching the sunset from Cape Point Vineyards.

The stretch from Kommetjie to Noordhoek is surfing paradise.  Endless beach walks at sunrise or sunset or simply hanging out for sundowners. Watch marine birdlife or spring into action with kite surfing or horse riding.  Make sure to look out for the Cape Clawless Otter.

Scarborough is an excellent beach for walking, reflecting, playing with kids or bird watching.  A glorious location for surfing, windsurfing and kite surfing! Scarborough is also a popular fishing area but permits are required as the area is part of a marine protected area.

BuffelsBay and Bordjiesdrif beaches in the Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve both offer picnicking, swimming, tidal pools, walking, bird and whale watching.  The Reserve is popular for day and overnight hikes.  The Shipwreck Trail is well worth it!
