If nature attracts you and you wish to experience it in its purest form, the beaches in Cape Town are what you need. So don't be surprised if you find the Cape Town beaches to be much more than the ocean, sunset, and sand.


Five of the Most Beautiful Beaches in Cape Town

1. Clifton Beaches

There is one natural phenomenon that sets Cape Town apart from all other cities in the world: Clifton Beaches. If you are planning a trip to Cape Town and the weather is nice and sunny, it would be a crime against nature not to go out and enjoy Clifton Beaches as they are some of the best in Cape Town. The Clifton Beaches are located about six kilometers from the city center of Cape Town.

The beaches are never empty, and since they are so close to the city center, you'll always find people flocking here with friends and family to enjoy and spend some quality time. You can experience the breathtaking scenery while the breeze plays with your hair. If you crave a swim in the ocean, be prepared for some rough waves.

2. Camps Bay

This beach is located a long way from downtown, and it will take you some time to get there. This means if a long drive with friends or family excites you, a trip to Camps Bay is the best for you. Enjoy the drive while you get mesmerized by the town's beauty, and then when you reach the beach, you won’t be disappointed. This is one of the most beautiful beaches in Cape Town. Not only that, the sand here is considered one of the best in the world.

3. Muizenberg

While many consider this to be the locals' favorite beach, it doesn't attract that many tourists. It is equally beautiful, and you can enjoy long walks on the white sand and relax with your companions in the colorful huts. If interested, you can even go surfing, an activity that attracts many water-lovers.

4. Noordhoek

If you wish to enjoy the sunset on a long, secluded beach, then Noordhoek is the place for you. Located a bit far from the city, it attracts fewer people. You can expect to find yourself in nature's lap, with fewer human eyes, a vast ocean expanse, cool water and breeze, and a lovely sunset. You can also see people enjoying the beach on horseback as the beach is surrounded by sea-facing houses with people owning horses.

5. Long Beach

It is one of the most popular beaches where people come to enjoy time with their close ones. Visit the beach when in Cape Town and get mesmerized by the gorgeous colours of nature. White sand under your feet, sparkling blue water in front of your eyes, surrounded by mountains, and the light winds - what else would anyone want for a perfect day out? Enjoy this stunning windy beach and satisfy your appetite in the restaurants nearby.


Most people who come to South Africa will inevitably make their way to the southern tip of Africa, known as Cape Town. Planning a visit to Cape Town and not including trips to these beaches will be no less than a sin. You will miss out on so much. They are definitely a different world altogether!
