Grotto Beach is superb. Never gets ovecrowded (even on the bank holiday we were there), and you can hire umbrellas and lounges. Life guards are ever watchful. Great for kids of all ages. Just a few too many flies in the morning. Superb for bodyboarding and/or just splashing about

The current is strong at Grotto Beach so kids better going with adult for safety reason. Water is icy cold at this beach but still a lot of fun to swim or just to get wet there. it's a beautiful beach with very fine sand.

Such white sand its rahter scary! But awesome :) You do need to pay R10 to get in though but its a day pass and if youre really up to it you can go for surfing lessons etc. We just went to the beach with the lagoon though for some walking.

Huge sandy beach in front of protected fynbos area. If you love beaches come to this one. I expect it gets very busy in mid summer but early summer was nearly empty.
