Milton Beach is one of the small beaches alongside the Sea Point Promenade in Cape Town, one of the most popular spots for watching the sunset in Cape Town, which has become a city-wide pastime.

Sea Point’s coastline is rocky and not ideal for swimming, although Milton Beach offers a place where it is safe to get into the water as it has a wonderful tidal pool. Milton’s Pool is shallow a place where kids can safely paddle in the cool water too. Young and old can also spend time looking for small sea creatures in the rock pools surrounding the beach.

Quite often Capetonians will often only drive through Sea Point in order to get to Clifton Beach or Camps Bay Beach, but by doing so they are missing out a less crowded day of tanning with stunning sea views as well as some of Cape Towns most exquisite restaurants.

Pack your suntan lotion and spend a few hours at Milton beach for a day of beachside fun. It’s a short walk to the ablutions, swimming pools and restaurants so if you don’t want to interrupt your all important tanning session, bring along your own drinks and snacks for a beach picnic!
