Windmill Beach<p>​Windmill Beach is tucked away behind the golf course at Froggy Pond. Like its neighbour, Boulders Beach, it is surrounded by giant granite outcrops which act as a windbreak. The white, sandy beach slopes gently into two gullies separated by a rocky point. Here the water is flat, calm and crystal clear, providing safe swimming and paddling for children in the shallows and good snorkeling in deeper water.</p><p>The beach is often used as a scuba diving training site, as it offers easy entry and exit points, good visibility, and minimal wave action. Novice divers are guided on a circumnavigation of the rocky point, departing from one gully and returning to shore via the other, while exploring the underwater life of the kelp forest. Sea-kayakers are also often seen paddling through the channel on their way to or from Simon’s Town.<br><br>Although this beach is considered safe for swimming, it is recommended that beach goers only swim where and when a lifeguard is on duty.</p>GP0|#b0341be0-21cc-4396-b99d-5d2f2853ace6;L0|#0b0341be0-21cc-4396-b99d-5d2f2853ace6|Water sports;GTSet|#153637b8-411d-4bf7-8214-7237f5d775f0;GP0|#4f97464e-7b95-401b-a7de-5608e592ff97;L0|#04f97464e-7b95-401b-a7de-5608e592ff97|Safe swimming;GP0|#9c8c0075-e925-4024-a33f-8df78b8a4f92;L0|#09c8c0075-e925-4024-a33f-8df78b8a4f92|Dog walking<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>021 782 8546</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|#b1b8ebb5-98fd-44d8-8d5f-fc9433daab5e;L0|#0b1b8ebb5-98fd-44d8-8d5f-fc9433daab5e|Toilets;GP0|#8bd68e2b-e95a-448f-8442-6f516772a696;L0|#08bd68e2b-e95a-448f-8442-6f516772a696|Dogs off leads allowed;GP0|#f322ea5c-24d6-4e39-a76d-092cdeba3ee1;L0|#0f322ea5c-24d6-4e39-a76d-092cdeba3ee1|Dogs on leads allowed<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> <b></b>Dogs are allowed to run free on the sand, but must be on a lead at all times on the pathways to the beach. </p></div></div></span>Cnr M4 and Bellevue Road, Simon's Town<img alt="" src="" style="BORDER:0px solid;" />
