No one quite does beach time like Cape Town! The Mother City’s beautiful beaches have been the backdrop of many postcards, photoshoots and Instagram shots, and it certainly isn’t hard to understand why! From world-famous heavy hitters like Camps Bay and Clifton Beach to long, out-stretched Cape Town gems like Muizenberg, Strand and Noordhoek, the Mother City’s beaches make for the perfect beach day all year round! And not to mention the rocky Bays with character and charm like Boulders Bay, Water’s Edge and Beta Beach, there certainly is something for EVERYONE!

There is nothing quite like being sun-kissed, salty-haired and beached-up in the Mother City, it truly is every bit as glorious as it sounds! The ocean and its beaches are also home to some of Cape Town’s favourite inhabitants and cherished ocean beings. The ever-charming Cape Fur Seals and adorable and charismatic African Penguins will have you smiling ear to ear and head-over-heels in love! But you’ll be sure to spot the other members of the Marine Big 5, namely dolphins, Mola Mola and whales, surfing the Cape Town waves too, so keep your eyes open! The Mother City definitely celebrates its marine life as much as it celebrates its people, making her truly one of a kind and worthy of the title as the best city in the world!
