THE EX­PE­RI­ENCE

The beaches near this sea­side town in the West­ern Cape are sandy and make for good run­ning (up to three hours) at low tide as the cam­ber isn’t ex­treme. If you’re plan­ning to go bare­foot, watch out for mus­sel shells.

BEST TIME TO RUN

Be­fore mid­day – the wind tends to pick up in the af­ter­noons. The sun­ni­est months are from Au­gust to May.

LO­CAL FARE

There are a whole host of beach­side eater­ies where you can reload the calo­ries you’ve ex­pended on your run. For cof­fee, break­fast or a light meal, head to Ginja Beanz Cof­fee Café.

OTHER AC­TIV­I­TIES

Kayak­ing, stand-up pad­dle­board­ing, wind­surf­ing, moun­tain bik­ing (see grav­ity.co.za).
