About Saunders Rock Beach

Saunders’ Rocks Beach, so named because of the imposing granite rocks that are a feature of this mostly wind-free beach, is ideal for visitors staying in beautiful Bantry Bay in Cape Town, just a skip away from Sea Point on the road to Camps Bay. This is the last beach in Sea Point, which means that it is still central and convenient for those that need a day of sunshine, sand and sea without getting too far from the amenities of the city centre.

Saunders’ Beach is a fairly popular beach but is not overly crowded, so it’s a great choice for families or couples that are after some solitude. Of course, weekends and holidays can get a little busier. The rock pools and gullies are fabulous spots for little ones and curious older ones to explore, as they are home to a surprising amount of marine life. The little tidal pool is a great (and safer) spot for a swim because it doesn’t have crashing waves or rip currents.

The beautiful white sand of the beach is dotted with rocky outcrops, which add a distinctive character to Saunders’. Still, committed sunbathers will always be able to find a quiet spot to bronze up.

The views of the ocean are breath-taking and the sunsets quite magical. So, this is even a good venue for a romantic picnic, or me-time (best enjoyed with a good book).

Saunders’ Rocks Beach has toilets and shower facilities, as well as nearby parking. Sea Point and Bantry Bay are only minutes away from the City Bowl of Cape Town, as well as from the V & A Waterfront and the CTICC.
