The world's most beautiful beaches
Crystal clear blue waves, a cool breeze and the feeling of the soft sand in your toes… there aren’t enough words to describe the beauty of beaches. Not all of them are equal and what makes a great beach depends on the kind of traveler you are.

To see the waves of the Indian Ocean, go to Muizenberg Beach on the East Coast of the Cape Peninsula. This quiet beach is frequented by many surfers and locals who come to enjoy a sunny day.
