A Day Out to visit Blue Flag Beaches on the Cape Peninsula

Cape Town boasts some of the most beautiful beaches anywhere in the world offering white sands and crystal clear waters. Ten of these special places have recently been awarded the prestigious international Blue Flag status. These beaches offer visitors so much more than sunbathing and ice creams! They are acknowledged for their safety protocols, amenities, cleanliness, water quality and environmental management.

There are serveral Blue Flag beaches close to Newlands Guest House. Fish Hoek (pictured below) and Muizenberg are on the False Bay coast. Camps Bay, Clifton Fourth Beach and Llandudno are on the Atlantic seaboard. Why not take a drive to include a fish and chips lunch at Kalky's in picturesque Kalk Bay Harbour on the way to Fish Hoek? Thereafter travel over scenic Chapmans Peak Drive to the Atlantic side of the Peninsula. Camps Bay is renowned for its variety of restaurants along 'The Strip' and the sunsets are legendry!
