About Olifantsbos Beach
Olifantsbos is a small, sandy beach and rocky point on the western side of the Cape Point Nature Reserve. It’s a magical place, wild and sometimes windswept, with a number of well-marked hiking trails and short beach walks. The beautiful Shipwreck Trail and Sirkelsvlei Walk start and finish here.
When the Southeast wind blows and there’s a west to southwest swell, surfers come to ride the right point-break on the incoming tide. Olifantsbos is a popular picnic spot offering green lawn, ablution facilities and ample parking.
One of the most amazing places to stay in Cape Town is Olifantsbos Guest House, a self-catering cottage situated right on the beach just south of Olifantsbosbaai. Wake up to the crash of the waves and eland grazing nearby in this unique getaway.
