About Milnerton Beach

It is not surprising that there is plenty of accommodation in Milnerton when one considers its gorgeous beaches that invite visitors from all over the world to sample the idyllic setting. Milnerton Beach is one of these, and is well known for its lighthouse, chilly waters, and breath-taking views of Table Mountain. It is close to the pretty Dolphin beach, just 20 minutes outside the heart of Cape Town.

Milnerton Beach is a safe swimming beach, thanks to the presence of life guards, for anyone brave enough for the chilly Western Cape sea water. The exposed beach break and consistent waves are irresistible to surfers and stand-up paddlers; and a group of hydrofoiling enthusiasts has more recently joined in the mix. On windy days (which are fairly common in the Western Cape), kite-surfers love testing their skills and taking advantage of the wind-powered thrill. Locals and visitors also enjoy jet-skiing here, as well as paddling on kayaks or canoes.

The lighthouse is not only an iconic feature of the beach in terms of aesthetics; it has also been essential to the many boats and ships entering Table Bay. The stretch of white sandy beach is perfect for long strolls, more energetic jogs, lazy days spent sun-tanning and reading, or a picnic with the family. It has earned a great reputation for being a particularly clean and well-kept beach.

It is lined with trendy cafés, bars and restaurants. After a morning in the surf, head to one of these for a bite or an ice-cold beer. Milnerton Beach is only 11 kilometres from the City Bowl of Cape Town and the V & A Waterfront, and about 19 kilometres from the Cape Town International Airport.
