Best beach to sun bait in Cape Town

Hi guys,

I came to South Africa to work/volunteer for 1 month, and have most weekends already booked. I was planning to book my last weekend at a beach where I could just lay back and enjoy the sun, any recommendations?

I'm currently staying in Table View, but find the Dolphin beach so windy, is impossible to sun bait without getting sand inside my ear and mouth haha.

Thanks a mil

True, of any beach anywhere while sun BATHING.

Find a sheltered spot, out of the wind ( and out of the sun as well, if you want to avoid skin cancer).

Rocklands is a small beach in Sea Point that is well protected against the wind. I suspect that Clifton and Camps Bay is also better protected.

Easy to reach with the MyCiti busses nowadays.

Hi Martha,

Table View is particularly windy. Clifton is quite a a sheltered beach, and one of the most beautiful stretches of beach. Clifton 4th beach is the most famous, but I would recommend 1st or 2nd as my favourites.

Llandudno beach is also pretty sheltered, and very beautiful.

Clifton is without a doubt the most popular beach in Cape Town for sun bathing and it is almost always wind-free. Also, even though the water is cold, it is safe to swim there.
