Beaches Of Cape Town

Cape Town has a wide variety of beaches divided into three regions by the Cape Peninsula:

  • False Bay, including the long sandy beach running from Gordon's Bay to Muizenberg, and the smaller beaches along the East side of the Cape Peninsula
  • Atlantic Seaboard, along the West (Atlantic) side of the Cape Peninsula
  • West Coast, along the West coast running Northwards from Cape Town

The sea in False Bay is about 6 degrees warmer than the Atlantic Seaboard and the West Coast.

In 2011, Lonely Planet listed Cape Town second in its list of the world's top 10 beach cities.

Famous quotes containing the words town, beaches and/or cape:

    I’m shakin’ the dust of this crummy little town off my feet and I’m gonna see the world.
    Frances Goodrich (1891–1984)

    They commonly celebrate those beaches only which have a hotel on them, not those which have a humane house alone. But I wished to see that seashore where man’s works are wrecks; to put up at the true Atlantic House, where the ocean is land-lord as well as sea-lord, and comes ashore without a wharf for the landing; where the crumbling land is the only invalid, or at best is but dry land, and that is all you can say of it.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    A solitary traveler whom we saw perambulating in the distance loomed like a giant. He appeared to walk slouchingly, as if held up from above by straps under his shoulders, as much as supported by the plain below. Men and boys would have appeared alike at a little distance, there being no object by which to measure them. Indeed, to an inlander, the Cape landscape is a constant mirage.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
