Oudekraal Beach lies between Bakoven and Llandudno, along Cape Town’s magnificent Atlantic Seaboard. The small cove forms part of the Table Mountain National Park and has its very own seal colony. Surrounded by boulders, it offers a much quieter alternative to the glamorous nearby beaches of Camps Bay and Clifton, with just as good a view of the Twelve Apostles mountain range.

The beach is not well known and is visited mainly by scuba divers who seek to explore Justin’s Caves, filled with fascinating sponges, soft corals, sea fans, and ascidians. Not far off is the 1698 wreck of the Huis te Crayenstein, drawing divers with the prospect of exploring an underwater treasure.

The beach offers braai facilities and a grassy picnic area sheltered beneath Milkwood trees. The huge granite boulders shelter the beach and provide a safe swimming area. There’s also a boma that can be booked for functions, although the beach runs according to a ‘no alcohol’ policy.

Please note: As the beach falls within Table Mountain National Park, there will be an entry fee and gate restrictions.
