Surfer in silhouette – Flickr pic of the day


This stunning image of a surfer on Milnerton Beach at sunset was taken by our Cape Town. Live it. Love it. group member Jim Sher aka Blyzz.

Milnerton Beach, on the Atlantic Ocean seaboard, is known for its spectacular views of Cape Town, Robben Island, Signal Hill and of course Table Mountain.

Milnerton has a fascinating marine history and it’s definitely worthwhile to visit the 21m (69ft) high Milnerton lighthouse. It has been said that the coastline from Green Point to Milnerton has seen more ships wrecked than any other coastline in South Africa. (Apparently 150 ships have gone down along this coastline.)

The beach is great for swimming and surfing as it is manned by lifeguards. With views of some of the best scenery that Cape Town has to offer, Milnerton is a popular beach for long walks and, of course, suntanning.

Do you have images of Cape Town you’d like to share with us? We’d love you to join the Cape Town. Live it. Love it. Flickr group!
