This beach is in a safe bay with warm water, excellent Jackal on the Beach situated in the Santos Pavilion - a historic building. Amazing sunsets and photo opportunities

Santos is one of the best beaches in South Africa. Good weather from November to May. Smaller waves and gradual shoreline make for a great beach for families with small kids. A good spot for skim boarding.

Here you can sunbathe, swim, chill or just take some relax. The water is pretty cool but clean, and the beach also. You can sit on the rocks and watch if dolphins or seals swim in the ocean. Pretty safe also

Best beach in Mossel Bay. This is a safe beach to visit as there are plenty of people about. There is also ample parking. The beach is lovely and sandy and a great place to have a swim in the waves.

I believe that is better if you rent a car and drive. It is a long way drive from Cape Town. You can rent a car for 10 usd a day.
