The Best Beach Edit
THE FAMILY ONE THAT’S actually NICE Separated from the perpetually crowded Camps Bay Beach by an outcrop of boulders, GLEN BEACH is easy to access and close to the strip of bars and restaurants without the hassle of finding somewhere to put down a towel.
THE ONE WITH ALL THE MODELS For those of steely self-confidence and steelier abdominals, the second of CLIFTON’S FOUR BEACHES is the most Clifton-y of them all. Expect more tempered bronze than Antiques Roadshow. Go early morning or late afternoon to avoid sweltering traffic.
THE ONE THAT’S CLOSEST TO PARADISE Part of the isimangaliso Wetland Park shouldering the Mozambican border, KOSI BAY is a nature fest starring leatherback and loggerhead turtles, African fish eagles and flamingos. The bathtemp Indian Ocean and stretches of white beach seal the deal.
THE ONE YOU DIDN’T EXPECT The West Coast might not be your knee-jerk for a beach getaway in summer but hear us out. It’s secluded and offers AEGEAN-WHITE BEACHES and crystal waters that make retiring from urban life feel like a viable life choice.
