About Monwabisi Beach & Resort

Pack your picnic basket and braai utensils and head to Monwabisi beach located near Khayelitsha on the Cape Flats along an exposed stretch of the False Bay coast.

‘Monwabisi’ is an isiXhosa word meaning ‘bringing joy’, to which many regular beach visitors will attest. The beach is particularly popular with residents from surrounding areas such as Mitchell’s Plain, Strandfontein and Khayelitsha. On New Year’s Day and Boxing Day every year tens of thousands of beachgoers flock to Monwabisi to enjoy the sun, sea and sand. Swimming conditions can be very dangerous due to the strong currents, however the beach features the largest man-made tidal pool in the Southern Hemisphere. There is also paddling pools and a pavilion, with kiosks and ablution facilities. Monwabisi has many picnic and braai sites set out on the terraced lawns of the resort for the day visitor and if you had so much fun in the sun that you would prefer to stay for the night you will find camping facilities and chalets available to hire.
