Cape Town is known to offer some of the best beaches in the world with soft sand and crystal clear waters providing sun-lovers the ideal conditions for relaxing and soaking up the sunshine. The various beaches in Cape Town offer very different experiences. The False Bay coastline is quiet and laid back with warmer waters making it ideal for families with small children. Colourful beach cottages and tidal pools are the landmark of this area and there are usually life guards on duty for your safety. Muizenberg has a sleepy sea-side town atmosphere with a long sandy beach, a putt-putt mini golf course and waterslides. Between Muizenberg and Fish Hoek there are a couple of smaller beaches and tidal pools including St James.
