I am a Cape Town local and have never been to Sandy Bay. I decided to visit and was not disappointed. It is simply a beautiful stretch of coastline.

If you are looking for tranquility just outside Capetown you should find it here as long as it is not... More

So the husband and I went to Sandy Bay for the first time ever. We've lived in Cape Town for almost five years, and had never been. First we stopped by Llundudno beach. Oh my goodness - just how gorgeous is that little spot!!?? Then we followed the signs and drove around to the parking for Sandy Bay. Again, the... More
