Oudekraal One of Cape Town's secret beaches

From Oudekraal with breathtaking  view of Twelve Apostles mountain range on the right
and Lions Head in the distance

Keep your eyes peeled for the sign "Oudekraal "when you drive the stunning coastal road between Bakoven and Llandudno, Its part of the Table Mountain National Park and often not half as busy as the more famous other beaches close by. It is a beautiful boulder-enclosed bay and when I went late this afternoon
the Camps Bay beaches were packed but here there was just one small party, a just married couple getting their photos taken

This gorgeous place is only about 20 minutes drive from Green Point depending on traffic
The only drawback is that the gates close at 18.00 so it was no good for sunset photos

Oudekraal Beach

Has sheltered coves and small sandy beaches between the massive granite boulders
I just love climbing rocks and boulders and there are plenty here !


From the top road on Signal Hill

In the last 2 days I got 3 World Cup related video's send to me
 from my blog fans in Canada, Germany and Cambodia

This one is very nice
but I absolutely adore this one



  2. Loved the third one with the boulders in the foreground Joanne. I REALLY miss colors in my world in Sweden at the moment, but I don't think spring is that far off now. Can't wait, it's worth the long wait every year.

  3. I had read about the wreck but never saw it !

    Helen I will show you this place when you come to CT next year :)its magical and its bursting with colours in Cape Town it will be the first thing what hits you after stepping off the plane !
