This beach is lovely and also has a very quaint town nearby. We weren't able to stay, but I would love to return - the beach views really are fabulous.

This is supposed to be one of the safest beaches in the Cape area. A chap who was swimming between the lifeguards flags got into trouble and unfortunately the lifeguards were not equipped to deal with the incident. Tragic.

This beach is absolutely amazing! The water was warm! A school of dolphins and a seal made an appearance during the course of the day.

Walked along bay and into lagoon a few times, stopping for a glass of wine at local restaurants on edge of Bay. Very clean, a blue flag beach. An area covered by lifeguards and flagged area to swim within. Waves crashing down, undertow.
