A nice beach to go past on your way to cape point. It has iconic brightly coloured boxes on the beach. It's well maintained and a good place to visit during most months.

St James Beach is wind free , even in a South Easter, Avoid over Christmas and New Year unless you get there early. Once again parking can be a problem as can an unreliable train service.

Very nice and different to the Clifton and Camps Bay beaches. The little houses are charming and if you are lucky you can use one for the day for you and your family or friends.
