The Beach Guide

Llandudno Beach

Set between Hout Bay and Camps Bay on Cape Town’s Atlantic Seaboard, Llandudno Beach is only about 15 minutes from the city centre. Unsurprisingly, this is one of Cape Town’s most popular beaches and is a particular favourite with families.

The pretty little crescent of white sand that forms Llandudno beach is flanked by giant, weather-worn boulders. To the rear of the beach is a stunning backdrop of steeply rising mountains with, what is one of Cape Town’s most exclusive neighbourhoods, clinging to the lower slopes.

Apart from the beach and the scenery there isn’t an awful lot in Llandudno so you’ll want to pack a picnic before heading down for a day of soaking up the sun, lounging on the rocks and cooling off in the chilly Atlantic. The beach is west facing, which is great for taking in the sunset. It does however mean the sea can get a little rough here but there is a lifeguard service throughout the summer months.
