  • It seems to be a beach for the locals. Enjoyed watching groups of seniors swimming, surfing, etc in the freezing water EVERY DAY. Nice boardwalk. Not a lot of shops in town but all you need if...  more »
  • Fish Hoek beach felt very dodgy and unsafe. There was an outlet that said not to touch the water coming from it and so it didn't really feel like a place to swim or put your feet in the ocean...  more »

  • Favourite beach! Love the ice cream, park play area... beach can get full on the one side when the weather is really good. Water is always worth a dip! Security is excellent. Leave our things on the shore, go for a dip, come back to find our things exactly where we left them! Law enforcement, lifeguard, sharkspotters, shark net all on site!
  • Nice family beach one side, dog walking on the other, just watch out for the 🐕 poo as some people think they dont have to pick up after their dogs. At high tide, very little beach so be sure to check the tides.
