Surfer’s Corner Beach<p>​Surfer’s Corner is considered the birthplace of surfing in South Africa. Legend has it that a visiting Australian showed the locals how ​it was done around 1910. Before long, collisions with swimmers necessitated a separate area demarcated for surfers, and what was formerly known as Neptune’s Corner naturally became Surfer’s Corner. It is still the place to learn to surf, and there are a number of surf schools catering for both young ‘grommets’ and late starters. The sharkspotting initiative that started here in October 2004, has since been expanded to other beaches by the City of Cape Town.</p>GP0|#b0341be0-21cc-4396-b99d-5d2f2853ace6;L0|#0b0341be0-21cc-4396-b99d-5d2f2853ace6|Water sports;GTSet|#153637b8-411d-4bf7-8214-7237f5d775f0;GP0|#9c8c0075-e925-4024-a33f-8df78b8a4f92;L0|#09c8c0075-e925-4024-a33f-8df78b8a4f92|Dog walking;GP0|#4f97464e-7b95-401b-a7de-5608e592ff97;L0|#04f97464e-7b95-401b-a7de-5608e592ff97|Safe swimming<p>Please see the Recreation and Parks Tariffs Booklet in the document download section below for more information about booking a facility.</p><h4>​General enquiries</h4><p> <em>Telephone:</em><br><em><a>021 788 7881</a></em></p><h4>District office </h4><p> <em>Telephone:</em><br><em><a>021 788 1929</a></em></p>GP0|#6fb82646-b411-48e6-b0d4-52898add42c8;L0|#06fb82646-b411-48e6-b0d4-52898add42c8|Parking;GTSet|#4be4596d-cdfe-41f7-a569-9d9c4e16c716;GP0|#438e2342-a1f1-468b-880a-9c70cf561dd3;L0|#0438e2342-a1f1-468b-880a-9c70cf561dd3|Sharkspotting;GP0|#567053b6-5896-4426-814d-af0276bc3698;L0|#0567053b6-5896-4426-814d-af0276bc3698|Disability access;GP0|#f322ea5c-24d6-4e39-a76d-092cdeba3ee1;L0|#0f322ea5c-24d6-4e39-a76d-092cdeba3ee1|Dogs on leads allowed;GP0|#b1b8ebb5-98fd-44d8-8d5f-fc9433daab5e;L0|#0b1b8ebb5-98fd-44d8-8d5f-fc9433daab5e|Toilets<span><div class="notification with-heading dark-copy pink bg-light-grey"><div class="graphic with-border"> <i class="info note">​​​</i> </div><div class="desc"><h4>Please note</h4><p> From April to November, dogs are allowed on a leash at all times.
