Llandudno, Atlantic Seaboard

Only 18 km from the centre of Cape Town and approached by one of the most scenic drives, over Suikerbossie Hill from Hout Bay or in the other direction from Camps Bay, along Victoria Road, Llandudno lies nestled in a private and peaceful cove with one of the most secluded and beautiful beaches in the city.

Llandudno might be an upmarket suburb with properties fetching well into the millions, but its residents regard it as something of a coastal town and the suburb has no street lights or shops of any kind. This is reinforced by the fact that Llandudno is accessed by only one road and there is minimal parking for visitors to the beach. Llandudno, named after the Welsh town of the same name, lies in the shadow of mountains.

The Twelve Apostles stretch off to one side, whilst Little Lion’s Head and the Karbonkelberg Mountain sweep off in the other direction. The beautiful beach, renowned for its white sands, crisp blue waters and giant boulders is arguably one of the most photogenic in Cape Town and a favourite for beach sports like volleyball, beach rugby, surfing; a great deal of sun-worshipping and a preferred picnic spot for families.

The beach remains unspoiled and the countryside fynbos stretches off in both directions, largely untouched. A 20 minute walk from Sunset Rocks brings one to Sandy Bay, the famous nude beach, and a five minute drive takes you over the hill from Llandudno to the village of Hout Bay, where there are plenty of restaurants, shopping centres and other options for the whole family.

Llandudno offers no restaurants or shops (which keeps the suburb private and exclusive). Just a short 5 minute drive takes you over the hill to the vibrant, lively community of Hout Bay. Hout Bay is a delightful fishing village with plenty of restaurants, upmarket shopping centres, endless tourist attractions, fun activities for the whole family and there are excellent options for holiday accommodation in Hout Bay.

A bit further away (a 20 minute drive) you can visit the world-class wine estates of the Constantia Valley, their internationally acclaimed restaurants and the exclusive Steenberg Golf Estate.

One of Cape Town's MOST beautiful beaches. Miss restaurants and cafés when we're there, but the magnificent setting definitely makes up for it.
