Sandboarding is one of the most exciting adventure sports offered in South Africa. It requires the same skills as snowboarding but is generally easier to learn and needs a lot less clothing.
The Atlantis Dunes, which are about a 40-minute drive from the Cape Town city centre, offer fine white sands for adventurers to test their balance and skills.
Downhill Adventures, +27 (0)21 422 0388, offers a full day of sandboarding here for about R700 per person.
Silversands in Betty’s Bay, about an hour’s drive north of Cape Town on the Atlantic coast, is another spectacular location for this exhilarating sport. Whether you’re experienced or not, this sport guarantees safety, fun and exhilaration. Possibly the best part about it is that it is easy to learn and available to beginners.
If you have your own equipment you can sandboard for free at the Hout Bay Dunes.

Screams fill the air, and you’re not sure you’ll live to savour the memories ... If that sounds like fun to you, then Ratanga Junction’s the place you need to be!
Feel the kiss of the salty wind astraddle a classic car or motorcycle, while taking in the magnificence of Cape Town’s mountain and ocean scenery.
The varied topography of Cape Town, from its soaring mountains to long, flat beaches, forested slopes and challenging mountain passes, presents the keen cyclist with an array of routes to choose from.
It has long been a human dream to soar like a bird on lofty thermals – and paragliding comes pretty close. There couldn’t be a better place to experience the thrill of paragliding than high above the beaches of Camps Bay and Clifton, and the Twelve Apostles.
