Cape Town has a world-class beach for every season and interest. In fact, South Africa was the first country outside of Europe to have blue flag beaches and Cape Town’s range from secluded bays to long, open stretches of sandy beaches fit for surfing, family outings, tanning, swimming and jogging. The shape of the Cape coastline and backdrop of the scenic mountains means that there is always a sheltered beach to enjoy.
