A sea breeze gently flowing through your hair, luscious sand between your toes, clear flowing water to quench the thirst of your eyes… not always the first image that comes to mind when thinking about a renowned safari destination like South Africa.
Four of south africa’s nine provinces are on the coast, and three of these four are abundant in blue flag beaches – there are 46 officially-certified beaches, to be precise. This annual international award symbolising the quality of beaches has strong criteria to be met, which divide into the categories of safety, amenities, cleanliness, environmental information, and environmental management.
The western cape, home of the mother city, cape town, holds a whopping 30 blue flag beaches, while kwazulu-natal and eastern cape have nine and seven respectively. Although south africa is known to have a mild climate compared to other holiday spots, winter in the eastern cape and western cape wouldn’t quite constitute beach weather. This is where kwazulu-natal rises to the occasion, having a tropical climate that is good for a beach day all year round.

Famous for being the backdrop of many big Bollywood numbers, Muizenberg beach’s colourful houses match the country’s ever-evolving diversity, and make for bold and exciting photos. The calm waters and flat open sand areas are great for family picnics and sports in the spirit of bonhomie.
