Glen Beach in Camps Bay, Cape Town, Western Cape
Glen Beach is a nice small beach with the fantastic backdrop of the mountain and is an absolute gem of a find! During season, despite being less well known than neighbouring Clifton 4th Beach, you will still need to get to the beach fairly early to ensure a good spot as it can become crowed with surfers and bikini clad youngers! It is famous for its beach-break surfing opportunities – be mindful of, and courteous too, of the fiercely territorial resident surfers whose ‘locals only’ graffiti decorates the beach wall.
The gorgeous snow-white sandy beach is set in a small enclave, flanked by huge granite boulders which increases its picturesque cove-like setting plus provides a shield from the South Easter wind. Glen Beach is conveniently located near the Camps Bay strip with its numerous shops, restaurants, cocktail bars and the popular Theatre on the Bay.
