Google Maps Location: Scarborough near Cape Point
Type of beach: Some sandy spots but mostly rock.
Natural or commercial: Extremely natural and wild. Very un-commerical.
Access by car: Yes, car park and then walk onto beach. 10m
Free or paid: Free entrance.
Access: Easy, just walk down the gangplank from the car park onto the sand and rocks.
Surroundings: Completely Natural beach in a village surrounded by a nature reserve.
This beach, along with Misty Cliffs just down the road are two spectacularly natural beaches around and near the Cape Point nature reserve. Even though both beaches are not directly within a nature reserve as there are small villages with houses where people live, both villages are very small and not very busy and off the beaten track. The villages are surrounded by nature reserves and thus have the feel of living in a nature reserve. The beaches are protected by the nature reserves on both sides so remain very pristine and clean.

This is a blog from Africa4Adventure.com. A short series on great beach destinations in South Africa based upon motorcycle rides to get there. Some are short day rides from Cape Town, others are much longer rides but if in Southern Africa and you are somewhere on the coast then are really good beaches to visit if you can find the time and are in the general area.
