1. Bloubergstrand: Kleinbaai: Very safe and secure beach and grassed play area with climbing frames and slides for the Children. Bloubergstrand (Blue Mountain Beach) is situated across Table Bay from Cape Town. The long, empty and sandy beaches are popular with dog walkers, kite flyers and those wanting a peaceful stroll along the beach. There are many restaurants, all within a stone throw from each other. Just 20 minutes drive to the West Coast Ostrich Farm!

2.Camps Bay: This beach is very popular, so go early in order to get parking close to the beach. If you do not have time to pack a picnic " there are plenty of shops and café’s. Umbrellas and loungers can also be hired on the beach. Lovely Tidal and rock pools for the children. Camps Bay is a long sandy beach accessed directly from the road. Again, parking in summer is limited and you may need to park along one of the many sideroads. The road behind the beach is lined with streetside cafes, restaurants and a few small grocery stores.

3. Llandudno: Lovely, but busy beach. There are not shops so make sure to pack enough juice / water and eats for the family. Large parts are sheltered with huge boulders providing shelter from the wind. This is one of the most beautiful beaches in Cape Town and is situated only 18 kilometers from the centre of the city. The tranquil little cove is perfect for those that seek complete peace and privacy. It is named after a British seaside town in Wales and this small exclusive seaside village has only one road in and out and no shops whatsoever. The beach is picture perfect framed by bushes, trees and giant boulders and has a good surfable wave. From the rocks you can see the remains of the tanker Romelia shipwrecked in 1977 after the tow rope snapped and the tug lost control.

4. Hout Bay: An ideal beach for parents with small children to play ball games and have fun after a visit to The World of Birds or a harbor cruise at Mariners Wharf. Originally a small fishing village, Hout Bay is now a favourite with visitors with its traditional harbour and many restaurants and curio shops. The beach is flanked by the harbour on one end and the cliffs of Chapmans Peak on the other.

5. Noordhoek Beaches: Long Beach & Kommetjie Beach: Long Beach stretches eight kilometers to Noordhoek Beach. This makes a lovely but long walk for the older children unless you have someone to pick you up on the other end. Kommetjie beach has a lovely Tidal Pool for the kids to cool off in. One of the most spectacular beach views in the world comes into sight as you come around Chapman’s Peak Drive. Noordhoek’s 8km beach is the longest and widest stretch of untouched pure white sand in the whole peninsula. Not suitable for swimming but perfect for the experienced surfer, it is wonderful for long walks, horse rides and sundowner drinks. The skeleton of the British steamer Kakapo, lies in the middle of the beach after it ran aground on its maiden voyage to New Zealand in 1900. In bad weather the Captain made a serious navigational error and came so far up onto the sand that the disembarking crew did not even get their feet wet!  The Noordhoek Farm Village has 3 restaurants, 2 pubs a huge playground, 16 retail shops, nursery, beauty salon, wine boutique,and 5 commercial tenants. The Village is open 7 days a week. The tenant mix also has - arts and crafts, antiques and collectables, artists, tack shop, african curios and clothing.
