Milnerton Beach

The mainly residential Woodbridge Island is separated from the Milnerton mainland by a tranquil lagoon.

As is the case all along the Atlantic Seaboard, the water temperature in Table Bay averages a cold 13 °C (55 °F). Dense fogs are frequent along this shoreline and the 21m (70 feet) high Milnerton Lighthouse is a prominent landmark behind the beach, as is its foghorn! This stretch of False Bay shoreline between Cape Town and Blouberg has been littered with scores of shipwrecks.

Milnerton is a popular beach for sunbathers, walking and surfing. Surfing conditions are best when the Cape South-Easter is blowing. Jet skiing, canoeing and kayaking are also popular activities.
