South Africa’s Best Beaches

  1. 1. South Africa’s Best Beaches Set on the southern tip of the African continent, South Africa has one of the continent’s longest coastlines. The western seaboard of the country is washed by the invigorating waters of the Atlantic Ocean, while the eastern seaboard’s golden beaches offer access to the warm waters of the Indian Ocean. Dolphin Beach The Eastern Cape Province is renowned for its endless white beaches, where visitors can take long walks and bathe in the Indian Ocean. If you’re looking at booking Eastern Cape accommodation, don’t miss out on the town of Jeffrey’s Bay, and its superb main beach - Dolphin Beach. Not only is this one of the finest beaches in the province, but it also provides excellent views of one of the world’s best known surf breaks. Margate Beach KwaZulu-Natal is one of South Africa’s most popular destinations for beach holidays. This 1km stretch of golden sand is one of South Africa’s most vibrant beach destinations, featuring dozens of exciting activities along its palm-fringed shores. During the summer this beach is a popular family retreat, offering fishing, a variety of water-sports as well as a water park for children. Camps Bay If you’ve booked Western Cape accommodation in the city of Cape Town, you won’t want to miss out on a visit to Camps Bay. This white sandy crescent is one of the city’s most popular getaways, and is one of the few beaches in the area sheltered from Cape Town’s prevailing south-easterly summer winds. Sunbathing is the order of the day at Camps Bay, and the beach is also an ideal destination from which to catch a spectacular sunset from a beachside café. Bikini Beach If you’re in the Western Cape but looking for tepid water, Bikini Beach is your best bet.

The beach adjoins a small working harbour which is home to a number of quaint restaurants.
