Scarborough is an all-tide, all-weather kind of beach. It is dog friendly and most dogs are off lead. Toilets available. Only a minute's drive from 3 restaurants/cafes.

We came across this little beach looking for a tea stop. The sand is white and soft. The sea a beautiful blue. Popular with surfers as the waves were quite choppy. Plenty of parking but nothing much else

This is a lovely beach, only about an hour from Cape Town. Beautiful white sand and craggy rocks, green sea with the rollers crashing in. Very clean and ample parking.

What a lovely day. From the informative start to preparing our collective meal this was a worthwhile experience. Book with veldandsea. They have other foraging courses besides the coastal foraging we did.

Beautiful quiet clean beach to walk along with family or your furry friend. It was a windy day so the sand stung a little and water was cold! Also watched the windsurfers in action later that afternoon.
