Bakoven, Cape Town, 8005, South Africa
Cape Town's Western SeaboardCape Town is a windy city. Windy days are generally not good for going to the beach, but because the Cape Peninsula has beaches both on the eastern and western coasts it means that there is generally at least one beach, somewhere, that is protected from the wind (so your sandwiches won´t get sandy, hooray!)
The prevalent summer wind is the Southeaster and as the name indicates, it´s best to avoid beaches on the eastern side of the peninsula when she´s gusting. Head to the west, and even better, head for one of the small little cove beaches, Bakoven is one of many. Parking is sometimes a bit tricky and access isn´t the easiest, since these are tiny beaches tucked away in residential areas... but it is worth the effort, especially on a windy day.
