About Maclear Beach

Maclear Beach lies just off the Cape of Good Hope, the most southerly point of the Cape Peninsula. Take one of two short footpaths through dense fynbos to the beach.

Walking along the deep soft sands of this beach can require a bit of effort, particularly at high tide. If you have kids, try to time your visit at spring low tide when the rock pools are at their best, providing hours of fascination.

Fishing and diving is excellent, particularly for yellowtail and crayfish. Braaing is not allowed. Facilities include ample parking and ablutions.
