Beautiful sea views. One can see dolphins playing in the waves. Dassies play and sunbathe either side of the boardwalk.

The water was warm for April and lovely evenings and sunsets. It seemed quite safe and we walked until it was about dusk. The beach is much cleaner than the beachfront of East London and I will definitely spend more time here next time

Great place to do an open water swim before Ironman 70.3. There are life guards on duty and there are fresh water showers to clean yourself off from the salty water.

Yes you can put a gazebo up but you must take it down at sunset - no sleeping on the beach is allowed.
