Lagoon Beach

Date: 18 March 2012

Location: Milnerton

Walkers: Michele & Helen

I was at the Lagoon Beach Hotel for a conference and when we finished in the afternoon Michele joined me for a walk on the beach. Although I often walk at Woodbridge Island nearby this was actually my first walk on this stretch of sand. First we walked towards Cape Town.

A short jetty about halfway along extends out into the sea. This gives one the perfect spot to take perfect iconic Table Mountain views.

Looking in the other direction we could see the Lagoon Beach suburb, hotel in the distance.

It's a very pleasant beach for walking: wide and flat.

One can't walk terribly far though, as one quickly reaches these barriers. When we got here we turned around and walked back up the beach.

In front of the hotel is the lagoon. Very popular spot on a sunny Sunday.

Across the channel we could see Woodbridge Island, the lighthouse just visible a little way further up.

The water was clean and clear, and not as cold as I expected.

We walked out as far as we could onto the sand bar.

Most people always think of the beaches at Clifton, Camps Bay, Muizenberg and Blouberg, but there truly are some magnificent beach inbetween.
