Seaforth is the 'freebie' version of Boulders beach - more than a few of the penguins venture across here from Boulders Beach, particularly early morning and evening. It lies closer to Fish Hoek than Boulders, and has only Waters Edge beach between it and the former.
Seaforth is a beautiful beach, set in amongst a series of boulders and with a serious parking area, where a few traders sell their wares, and there is a restaurant. But it's a fairly popular beach too, particularly during summer, because it's a great swimming beach for children, so families head down here to camp out for much of the day.
The grassy slopes that overlook the beach are, understandably, the first spots to go because they're so great for picnicking; some of them under trees. Get there early.
