Things To Do in LlandudnoLlandudno Beach
Where? Llandudno Beach, off M6 Victoria Road, Cape Town.
How much? Free
The pristine crescent of Llandudno beach curls itself into the base of the mountain rock between Hout Bay and Camps Bay. A steep stare from the coastal road, light blues melt to deep darks where ships have wrecked themselves in stormy waters.
Roll out your beach towel, read a romance novel and relax. Throw open a picnic blanket, toss your cares ashore and tunnel your toes into the sand. Wave surfers and lifesavers challenge the currents but for the less competitive an ankle-deep Atlantic dip will refresh.
Blow up a beach ball for the kids and let them finger sketch in the soft white sand. The wind may wake you from a sea-side snooze so try to find a sheltered spot behind a rock if a breeze is a bother. No refreshments are for sale, so come packed and prepared. Lather up in sunscreen, though a little further from the sun down in Llandudno, it will reach you strong.
Bring a brolly and the family and brave the day beach side. In an elite residential area the parking is minimal so the big beach is seldom crowded.
