The website says, ‘Whether you’re in the market for a secluded sandy stretch or a buzzing beach party, you’re sure to like the look of a fair few of these beaches. Consider this your essential vacation guide.’

The penguin colony has made this beach famous more than its sandy stretches. The website further said, ‘A whole colony of as many as 3000 African penguins nest on the beach. The best time to see them is during the summertime. The cool, clear False Bay water and rock pools are an added bonus.’

According to IOL, Big 7 Travel has created this list for five consecutive years. The company combines ‘scores from various media outlets, official Blue Flag locations, social media popularity, and editorial team inputs to determine the best beaches to visit this year.’
