Description

This guide explores 9,500kms of the best beaches in the world, from Alexander Bay along the coast to Sodwana, visiting hundreds of beaches and exploring a magnificent coastline.

The author, Ann Gadd, has trumped up dunes, scrambled over rocky cliffs, swam as often as time would allow, hung off numerous piers and took over 6,000 photos. She sums up her experience as being aware that people are never as happy as on a beach, soaking up the sun, doing a radical off the lip or holding a rod.

The guide gives the reader activities to do on land as well as on water with great sundowner spots and unique experiences.
Find the best swimming beaches and national parks with overview maps indicating sites and handy tips for the best meal, best-kept secrets, child-friendly activities, star-rated activities and blue flag beaches.

If you want to do activities besides soaking up the magnificent scenery, the guide explores hiking, walking, fishing, surfing, swimming, boat launches, bodyboarding, kayaking, kiteboarding, boardsailing, canoeing, and SUP.

This guide is a fantastic keepsake for locals as well as anyone who enjoys water sports, and is light-weight for tourists to take back home as their travel memento.

So, get off the couch and explore the wealth of fantastic options along South Africa’s shores.

Inside Flap

Ann Gadd is the author of 20 books and one of South Africa’s most popular artists, (best known for her ‘sheep’ series of paintings).

She has always had a deep love for the sea, that lead to her becoming South African National Boardsailing Champion, as well as at one stage, holding the South African title for being the fastest woman on water.

Since then, she mellowed her watersport activities to body-boarding and SUPing on calm days at Blouberg. In researching this book and photographing its beaches, she travelled over 9500km along the coastline of South Africa from Alexander Bay on the Namibian border in the west to Sodwana Bay on the far eastern coastline, near Mozambique.
