Cape Town’s 307km coastline features 72 of the most stunning beaches in the world. These are displayed in map form here. Our coastline is unique in that it is seen as the meeting place of two oceans, the Atlantic and Indian Oceans. Apart from recreational activities the beaches provide photographic and filming opportunities to the world's media, and the domestic film and advertising industry. Through its participation in the world-renowned Blue Flag beach programme, the City ensures that beach users are provided with beach facilities of international standards. We endeavour to provide an enjoyable experience to beach users, through various infrastructural, safety and services programmes.
