Summer holidays are meant for one thing and that is soaking up the wonderful summer sun's rays on the beach. Whether you prefer the quiet, unspoiled beaches scattered along the beautiful Wild Coast or the bustling white sand of Cape Town's cosmopolitan beaches, there is undoubtedly a beach in South Africa that is the perfect location for your summer holiday.

With so many exquisite beach options to choose from, it can be hard to decide where to spend your summer holidays.  To help you decide, we've put together a list of four of South Africa's best and most beautiful beaches to visit this summer.


With its pristine white sand, beautiful (if not somewhat chilly) blue waters and mountainous backdrop, Clifton boasts some of the best beachfront in South Africa. A blue flag beach that has calm waters and lifeguards on duty throughout the peak season, Clifton's beaches are family friendly and the ideal location to relax and unwind under a beach umbrella. Astir with activity and the almost constant sound of beach vendors calling out "granadilla lollies to make you jolly", Clifton offers visitors an unmissable and exciting beach experience.


Located along the scenic Garden Route, Plettenberg Bay is the perfect summer holiday destination. It's crowning glory, however, is the exquisite Robberg beach, which stretches on for kilometres along the Indian Ocean. With its sun-kissed golden sand, lifeguards and azure warm waters, Robberg Beach is the perfect location to spend a hot summer's day soaking up the sun's rays and splashing around in the water. If you're lucky, you'll also spot the dolphins which love swimming amongst the waves close to the shore.

Coffee Bay

For those of you who are looking for a quiet, undisturbed piece of beach to travel to, then look no further than Coffee bay. Nestled in the heart of the Wild Coast, Coffee Bay is known for its exquisite scenery and immaculate, unspoilt beaches.

At Coffee Bay, you can experience some of the best, largely untouched beachfront that South Africa has to offer and explore the famous Hole in the Wall rock formation.
