Beaches and Surf

Cape Town is a beach-lover’s destination of choice with a whopping 72 beaches and boasting no less than NINE Blue Flag Beaches. Whether you are into adventure activities like surfing, kitesurfing, horse riding and fishing, or simply enjoy relaxing in the sun surrounded by beautiful people, Cape Town has a beach for you.

Surfing is also huge in the Mother City and locals will tell you that we have some of the best waves in the world. National Geographic named Muizenberg as one of the World’s Best Surf Town’s and caters to surfers of all levels with a gentle shore break for the beginners and the deeper waters offering something more for the veterans. The Atlantic coast, meanwhile, is home to some seriously huge reef breaks generating massive waves when the swell is big. These giant waves peak in the winter months when huge swell drives towards the Cape coast.
