One of the most beautiful beaches in Cape Town is situated about 18km from the centre of the city of Cape Town in a village known as Llandudno. Secluded and private, this area consists only of residential houses – there are no shops or restaurants, not even streetlights to mar the natural light cast by the golden sun on the waves breaking on the beach.
While it may be one of the more affluent areas in Cape Town, most of the residents value their privacy and this ensures an extremely tranquil and peaceful setting for those wishing to relax in one of the most picturesque regions in Cape Town.
There is only one road leading to and from Llandudno, which is one of the reasons why the area is so safe and secure. There is also minimal parking at the beach for visitors, making it difficult for anyone but residents to visit this spot.
There are many lovely villas and holiday homes available for visitors in Llandudno. Dotted in spectacular locations and facing the Atlantic Ocean, there are four as well as five bedroom accommodation choices. Larger groups travelling together or big families will also find superb seven bedroom accommodation in truly breathtaking positions facing the ocean.
Llandudno is not as well known as some of Cape Town’s other beach destinations like Camps Bay, Clifton and Bantry Bay. When it comes to upmarket Atlantic Seaboard accommodation though, you will be hard-pressed to find finer options than in Llandudno.
The village nestles in a peaceful cove at the end of a scenic drive and can be accessed from Camps Bay or via Hout Bay, which lies on the other side of the mountain. It is surrounded by Little Lion’s head and the Karbonkelberg Mountain and the giant granite boulders in the beach add to the natural charm of this scenic village.

As an added perk, Llandudno is quiet and there are no crowds of holidaymakers or noisy tour buses to spoil your idyllic holiday.
Relax... relax... relax
The alluring Llandudno beach with its inviting turquoise water, the large boulders and the dazzling white beach is the main attraction. Surfers are fond of the break here but the water is quite cold and only the brave really go swimming.
Beach activities are popular and there is often a game of volleyball or beach rugby on the go. Families will enjoy the beach for sunbathing and a range of activities. Llandudno is a very family-friendly destination as it is so safe and children can explore in the mountains as well as along the beachfront.
For parents and those weary of life or merely in need of a break to recharge their batteries and rejuvenate the spirit – Llandudno will be just what the doctor ordered.
There is plenty of accommodation in Llandudno with wide terraces, lovely sea and mountain views and plenty of walks and hiking opportunities in the mountains. Nature lovers will especially appreciate the birdlife in the fynbos, which can be quite thrilling.
When you tire of all that natural beauty…
For all your shopping and big town needs, a quick drive over the mountain will take you to Hout Bay, a quaint fishing village that has over the years developed into a residential area with upmarket shopping malls, boutiques and other shops.
Here you will find supermarkets and markets to browse and satisfy the need for curio shopping. Alternatively, Cape Town is not too far away and can easily be reached for outings to Table Mountain or the V&A Waterfront.
When in Hout Bay, you may want to consider driving through the valley to the other side to Constantia Valley. Here are historic wine estates and acclaimed and award-winning restaurants as well as golf courses – for those who would like to swing their clubs while on holiday.
Of course, chances are that you will never want to leave your Llandudno accommodation at all – except to sunbathe on the soft sandy beach…
The Llandudno beach area is a pristine stretch of sand with waves rolling onto a sheltered area. It is the perfect sunbathing spot and even though the water is quite cold, many swimmers go into the waters.
The beach is wide and with lots of room for various families and groups without people crowding each other. Surfers enjoy this particular area as well and can often be seen on their boards, paddling out towards the waves.
Mostly, however, Llandudno is known for its natural beauty and tranquillity. It is the ultimate holiday destination in Cape Town for more discerning travellers.
