Cape Town has many beautiful beaches with powdery white sand, cold waters, and stunning views. It is not surprising then that Cape Town will always come to mind when you think of the best places to play beach volleyball. Beach volleyball, along with other popular beach sports such as kitesurfing, is a great way to take advantage of the scenic setting Cape Town has to offer.
Where to Play Beach Volleyball in Cape Town
Camps Bay Beach is the largest and among the most popular white sand beaches in Cape Town. This Blue Flag Beach attracts visitors every day, especially during summer, because it is the perfect place not only for beach volleyball but also for sunbathing, surfing, kitesurfing and other beach activities. It is also perfect for sundowners, as it is one of the best sunset spots in Cape Town.
Along the beach are well-established picnic areas for braais, covered seating areas with tables, benches and public toilets. Deck chairs and umbrellas are also available for rent. Adjacent to the beach is Camps Bay’s main tourist hub boasting a number of hotels, cafés, restaurants, coffee shops, clubs, and bars.
In addition, Camps Bay Beach hosts exciting events like the popular Summer Beach Festival and international beach volleyball tournaments.
The four Clifton beaches are favorite destinations for both locals and tourists. The beaches which are separated by granite boulders are named from 1st to 4th. Clifton’s 4th beach is the largest and most family-friendly of the Clifton beaches. And just like Camps Bay, it has also been awarded the Blue Flag award in recognition of its environmental, safety, and tourist standards. Common beach activities on Clifton 4th beach are beach volleyball, touch rugby, and Frisbee. It is a perfect spot for beach volleyball, being sheltered from summer’s southeasterly winds. Beach Bums Volleyball Club sets up on this beautiful beach every Saturday morning.
