Llandudno Cape Town is a suburb of Capetown, South Africa located right along the Atlantic seaboard of the Cape Peninsula. It is undoubtedly one of Cape Town’s most picturesque beaches. Motorists driving along Victoria Road on the way to and from Hout Bay can stop at the lookout site to gaze down on an enticing white beach, and admire from afar the exclusive suburb’s architectural showpieces clinging to the steep slopes.
From the water’s edge, the setting is even more appealing, with the beach framed by natural bush, and Judas Peak and Klein Leeukoppie (‘little lion’s head’) rearing up on either side to form a dramatic mountain backdrop.
Few people venture into the water for more than a quick dip, because the sea is usually icy cold in summer, the currents strong, and the power of the breakers sometimes intimidating to all but the most confident of surfers and bodyboarders. The beach is popular for sunbathing and sundowners, though some people opt for the surrounding granite boulders, which retain the sun’s heat, and provide a great view of the sun setting over the sea.
Llandudno Cape Town is filled with historic flavor, ambiance and a thriving energy that simply cannot be topped.
