The Mother City is blessed with an abundance of white sandy beaches, that stretch on further than the eye can see. With spectacular views of Cape Town's landmarks, and refreshingly cold ocean water, it's no wonder that Cape Town was voted Best Beach Destination in Africa at the World Travel Awards 2012.
Cape Town's 26 beaches are divided into three regions in the Cape Peninsula: False Bay, the Atlantic seaboard and the West Coast.
Take a dip in the clear blue ocean water, catch a wave on a surfboard, or just lie on a beach towel and soak up the sun at one of these amazing Cape Town beaches.
