St James Beach


St James Beach is a small picturesque beach located on the warm False Bay coastline in the suburb of St James in Cape Town, Western Cape. The beach is easily spotted by its colourful Victorian changing boxes on the sand which can be spotted across the railway lines from the main road.

There is a large, gently sloping walled tidal pool where both kids and adults can swim and play safely, and a small beach. Spend the day collecting shells, exploring the rock formations, or relaxing on the nearby lawn. Refreshments, cafes, and restaurants are all within easy walking distance.

The beach is not very big so it can get rather crowded during the summer time. During high tide, the big waves break against the tidal pool wall, so it’s not advisable to get too close to the wall when this happens. The rock pools are rich with fascinating sea creatures to discover.
