Beaches of Cape Town

There are more than 30 beaches for the visitor on holiday in Cape Town from which to choose. The most fashionable beaches are found on the Western side of the peninsula, the "Atlantic Ocean" side, while the beaches of False Bay are fed by the warmer Indian Ocean currents and are generally warmer in summer, making for more enjoyable swimming. False Bay is situated on the east side of the peninsula, and is a wide, sweeping inlet protected to the west by the peninsula and to the east by the mainland.
