About Beta Beach

This tiny, secluded beach, next door to Oudekraal beach, is made up predominantly of course beach sand and giant boulders. It lies in the heart of the Atlantic Seaboard's Bakoven with some of the most enviable views of the Twelve Apostles and Lion's Head.

It is not the privately owned beach everyone thinks it is, despite lying at the feet of a series of privileged residences that look as though they open onto the beach; although there are certain unspoken rules that govern behaviour that include allowing people their privacy, and behaving as though it is, indeed, an exclusive beach.

Beta beach is a lot quieter than its neighbour, the Cliftons and Camps Bay. But be warned: it is virtually a hand towel's worth of space, so get there early, for once the tide is in it can feel more than a little confined.

Because the beach is flanked by large boulders, wind is not a weighty factor and swimming verges on the sedate. Most of the people who head here come to sunbathe and read the Sunday papers.

To find it: follow Victoria Road through Camps Bay. Take a right into Beta Road, park (if you can find a parking, hence the need to go early) and then head down a walkway between the houses towards the beach.

Ideal for: couples and childless singles after undisturbed relaxation.
