Glen Beach is one of the most popular beaches in Cape Town as it is the view from the Camps Bay strip where you’ll find a multitude of restaurants and beach bars to escape to out of the suns heat. During season the beach will be packed with both tourists and locals who are bikini clad and settled in to work on their tans.

The water at Glen Beach is refreshing after a while in the sun, but it is prone to sand banks, so think twice before you dive into the waves. Sit back and enjoy the activity on the beach - from the ice cream men selling “granadilla lollies” to the local cool-dude surfers and children playing beach ball.

Glen is not the largest of beaches so you’ll need to get there early to secure your spot in season, but it is well worth it as the setting is gorgeous and you have wonderful views in all directions. The beach is a short walk from trendy bars, the little Theatre on the Bay as well as a fair number of shops and restaurants. This is one beach you need to visit!
