Sandy Bay

Everybody in South Africa knows (or should know) the name Sandy Bay. It's probably the only public beach in the country where it's acceptable to let it all hang out. And with that I mean going nude (Like you didn't know what it means). So on my recent visit to Cape Town we were driving along the Atlantic Seaboard when my brother asked me if I've ever been to Sandy Bay. Now I had heard that you have to walk quite far from Llandudno to get there, but this seemingly isn't the case. I think somebody tried pulling the wool over my eyes. Obviously he offered to go and show me.
The walk along the coast only takes about 10 minutes or so and has some stunning (scenic) views and turquoise little bays. I felt a bit weird walk with my camera out in the open taking pics all the time, but we didn't really encounter anybody en route and non of those we did pass were naked or gave me any funny looks.

After a stretch of flat rocks we came over a crest and there it was... Sandy Bay... with no nudes. Bwahahahaha, how funny was that. Not that I was expecting many as it was late winter and a bit chilly. It's actually quite a stunning beach and I can see why its so popular in summer. Listening to my brother's rendition of what he saw the day he visited in summer, I may just have to make another trip... Heeheehee...

  7. Great shots of a spectacular area. When the sea looks that stunning turquoise colour it is usually freezing cold, heh heh. Unfortunately there have been quite a few muggings in that area over the last while so it isn't a safe spot to visit any more (especially with expensive camera equipment).
