Wow! Long White sandy beach with gentle waves. Stunning sunsets & the sea warm enough to swim. The only draw back was plastic on the beaches I wanted to start a clean up daily campaign to keep it the the beauty it is 💕🇿🇦

Great beach, seems to stretch for miles..... Sandy, clean, safe with a gentle slope, easily accessible, great for the kids, super views, great boardwalk.
Shops and afes on the other side of the beach road - which is safe with plenty of crossing points.

Love this stretch of beach with its white sands. It's usually clean and safe for swimming & surfing.

The Strand Beach are beautiful to visit.....unfortunately on holiday days it is an absolute chaotic place to be. No crowd control.....not enough ablution facilities
for the crowds visiting the beach. Litter is left everywhere and no law enforcement trying to keep the area clean. No respect for the place at all....Parking of cars on pavement areas making it difficult for pedestrians to walk. This disorder makes the strand an unpopular place to visit on holiday days which is sad. Better control of people is needed desperately. The Strand has no Christmas/holiday Spirit which is needed desperately to keep people coming back during holidays. A Beautiful place that sadly needs attention.
So sad to see The Strand ......not clean....no Christmas lights as a few years ago...no Santa in Beach road with sweets for the kids....no Christmas band singing...all memories.......gone....
Beautiful place slowly being destroyed.

I am an ex UK resident. I live close to Beach Rd. I use to swim near the jetty until i found that the water is very polluted. 4 toilet waste pipes empty into the bay)I cycle regularly down Beach Rd and board walk. It can be very unsafe at times. (Gangsters). People have been robbed from handbags and phones)There is hardly police coverage , only inadequate security, The beach and bin areas can be very filthy at times. after the bin scavenger's have been.'
The swimming pool was being refurbished? That was stopped since lock down. Waiting forever for the swimming pool heating tb fixed.
The flea market is having a bad time since lock down. Sails becoming tattered since the lock down. Many of these poor people are struggling with no help from the municipality. Pot holes and irregular Rd for cyclists.
The beach Rd area has potential of being a great stretch of beach.
Ps . Cockaroache's seen on beach walls after 9 pm.

S5. Ep5  Livin' it up

Lazing around on the beach is so cool.
Soaking up the sun is so envigorating.
If things get too hot you can always reach for an ice cream, right there.

If things get out of hand get in a bulldozer to pull it right.

Should things become too boring at Topaz then move on to Hibernian Towers.

I regularly go for walk on Strand Beach because it's clean and rather level with a huge stretch of beach to walk along.

Definitely worth a visit.

What a beautiful stretch of beach lovely white sand for extensive walks, areas with rock pools and good for swimming. Even areas for the fishermen now that is what I call a real lucky dip - something for all the family.
Great ice creams available too.

An absolutely beautiful beech. Lovely sand and it is kept very clean. Sodding cold water, as usual, so we didn't swim. As usual, you are self sufficient so take your own umbrella and sun bed.

Could be cleaner but I actually saw a male car guard (pink vest with self employed by donations) picking up litter on the beach. I was so impressed with this and realized we can all make a difference.
