Gay Beaches Cape Town

Cape Town's gay beaches are one of the most important aspects of a gay holiday in the Mother City. The weather gets very hot and the beaches are packed with sexy gay boys and girls. Its like you are a kid loose in a sweet shop and compared to some European destinations the average age seems younger.

  • Clifton Beach is where it all happens, just a 15-minute drive from Cape Town's city centre. It is split into four sections by large boulders. Beaches 1 and 2 are quieter for couples and families, Beach 3 where everyone who is anyone goes to tan at Clifton. All the gay gym boys draped in designer swimwear, speedo's and body hugging shorts. Some gay girls go topless. One of the few beaches in the Cape Town area completely sheltered from the wind. A favorite gay men's beach is Clifton 3rd... and the fourth is most popular with the young straight crowd. It is also home to the lifeguard station with many pumped muscle boys hanging out there. Sandy Bay The only nudist gay beach in the Cape.
  • Sandy Bay lies about 18 kilometers from the center of Cape Town and can be reached by a winding, scenic road that follows the Cape Peninsula mountains through a number of upmarket coastal suburbs that cling to the side of the mountain and run down to the soft, white, sandy beach below.
