Sandy Bay lies on one of the last remaining stretches of untouched natural coastline on the Cape Coast in Cape Town. Situated adjacent to Llandundo, it is one of the Cape Peninsula's most inaccessible beaches and is well-known as an unofficial nudist beach.
The beach is about a 20 minute walk from the nearest car park, and can also be reached from the Hout Bay dunes. The area’s unspoilt beauty, with steep dunes and bush slopes, has made it popular among hikers and conservationists.
The beach is surrounded by high mountains which protect it from most winds, as well as provide a level of privacy for those who just want to relax, soak up the sun, and let it all hang out! If the sea swells are large, there is a great beach break for surfing and body boarding.
