Okay, so I know that Cape Town is having some crappy weather for the next few days, but as soon as the sun comes back out to play, you should do this!
Oudekraal is a protected area just past Camps Bay along the beautiful Victoria Road costal drive. It’s a picnic/braai/beach area nestled just under the 12 Apostles mountains, with beautiful views at each little spot. Entrance is R30 for adults and R15 for kids (or free with a Wild Card as not is part of SANParks Table Mountain National Park) and you can chill there the whole day (until 6pm) with your picnic stuff/braai stuff/whatever. The water is kak-cold, but that’s expected, and worth a dip or two in the calm rock pools during the day.
Turquoise waters, white sand, big boulders… it’s a hidden little paradise.
Tip: Go early (like before 10am) to pick the best spot and also to get a parking! Also, it is an alcohol free zone, so take this time to detox while you chill.
