Favorite thing: Fishoek is a small little town on False Bay and is also on the way to Simon's Town and Boulders Beach. It doesnt seem like there is much happening in this beautiful spot other than people Fishing or lying about on the beach. We spent a day relaxing there and it is nice to get away from always busy Cape Town

Perfect sunny day on a lovely beach...
Favorite thing: The great beaches we have!!! You can spend an entire day in the sand and sea with your mates and after that you all go to a restaurant and enjoy your favourite cocktail while watching the sunset. Doesn't that sounds like fun?... On the beach you can play games like: Rugby, kricket, frizbee, soccar, you name it! And while you at it you can make some new friends.
Fondest memory: I love our people!!! And i love the food & wine.

Fish Hoek is a ‘dry’ town
Favorite thing: By tradition, no retail liquor outlets are allowed in Fish Hoek – it’s a convention that dates back to the days when the village was a staging post for the wagons that carried goods between Cape Town and Simon’s Town.
The by-law was introduced to prevent drivers from stopping off for a dram (…or two… or three) and arriving at their destinations in less than a sober state.
Alcohol is served at the numerous restaurants in Fish Hoek, but there are no liquor stores. You will have to travel 5 mins by car to Kalk Bay or Long Beach Mall for that!

The lovely beaches
Favorite thing: If you have time enough, enjoy a day in the wonderful beaches around Capetown.
The water is very cold especially near Blouberg, but do not let that deter you. If you would like it a bit warmer use the showers to cool down.
The most popular ones are:
Clifton's 5 th Beach, Lundudno beach, Sandy Bay the nudist beach. Long Beach & Muizenberg beach both surfer's paradise.
Lovely beaches and great nature
Favorite thing: Capetown is a cosmopolitan city. A lot of things to do and see. Visit the many beaches and shops.
The area and cities around capetown are nice too and not that crowded.
Fondest memory: the beaches and the special atmosphere in the multi cultural and ethnic city.

On the beach at sunset
Favorite thing: My daughter had an apartment directly above First Beach at Clifton. It was a truly magical place to set down a rug on the sand, open a bottle of well-chilled Chardonnay, and watch the sun go down.
Fondest memory: On Christmas Eve, 1998, I went to midnight mass in Camps Bay, and the service was held on the lawns outside the church. The night was warm, the scent of flowers heavy in the air - an unimaginable contrast with Christmas Eve in the UK

Favorite thing: Cape Town is full of beaches, wherever you go... you will find a nice beach.
Transparent water, white sand, big waves, cold and warm water... a great place for surfers....
It was amazing to watch the sunset, lay on the white sand, while the surfers were "playing" with the waves....
Fondest memory: I cant remember the names of all the beaches where i went but... i remember Sunrise Beach, close to Grassy Park. It seems this is one of the best to watch the sunrise.... (now its ok Fiekie??)
Ah! and if u like the seals... there you can see some of them!
greentara's General Tip
Fondest memory: Don't you just love sitting on the beach after a hot day feeling the wind and watching the sun sink slowly behind the ocean.
My favorite beach was camps bay, lots of bars right across the street and great fish restaurants.

If you have time enough, enjoy a day in the wonderful beaches around Capetown. Beaches on the west side of the Peninsula (Atlantic) are several degrees colder than those on the east side (False Bay/Indian Ocean).
These are the most popular ones:
Clifton's: big beach, quiet, perfect for a picnic.
Sandy Bay: nudist beach.
Long Beach: a surfer's paradise.
Favorite thing: A very popular beach where u will mostly find families coming to spend the day. Either having a leasure day or bringing their doggies for excercise.
