Camps Bay Voted South Africa’s Best Beach, by

I was asked a while ago to share this article by on South Africa’s best beaches. With Summer upon us, I thought it was about time I did!

‘With no shortage of sunshine on 2500km of coastline, South Africa boasts a wonderful selection of beaches to enjoy. From the busy, bustling destinations in Durban, to the secluded, untouched paradise along the Wild Coast. South Africa’s top review site, Yowzit, has just revealed the top 10 beaches in the country as voted for by thousands of users, and here are the results.

In third place was Llanddudno Beach in Cape Town. Away from the more popular beaches in the mother city, Llandudno beach is a favourite amongst Cape Town’s elite – it’s only 200m long and is surrounded by natural bush, with a dramatic mountain backdrop. Although the sea is icy cold, the picturesque beach is one of the country’s most loved.

Second is Ramsgate Beach in Kwa-Zulu Natal. This beach is wide, sandy and hosts lots of activities all year round. With the permanent sub-tropical climate and warm waters, it’s perfect for swimming all year round, and there’s plenty of bars and restaurants nearby once the sun sets. A must-see if you’re in the Durban area.

But the winner, almost unsurprisingly, is Camps Bay in Cape Town. Boasting one of the best stretches of coastline anywhere in the world, this beach has everything. White sand, water sports, stylish bars, top restaurants and lots of beautiful people! Again the water is usually cold, but it’s worth it, as by Yowzit’s visitors seemed to agree.
