This is a smaller secluded beach a little way from Cape Town. Quiet, plenty of photo ops, serene too. Some kite surfers the day I was there. I enjoyed the area very much

This unspoilt beach of white sand is generally frequented by the locals who enjoy all sorts of beach activities. To the right is a long stretch of rocks, with interesting rock pools and lots of mussels. The water, of course, is cold.

We visited around 7pm , just in time to see the sunset and see the surfers finishing up for the day. The waves are asesome sending up some great spray as the tide was coming in. And the sunset was gorgeous despite the clouds
