Strand

Strand is part of the Helderberg area which is the most south-eastern point of the Cape Town metropolitan area and within False Bay - i.e. the Indian Ocean (read warmer) side of the peninsula. Its 5 km long Beach Road is lined with a variety of apartment blocks, eateries and shops. The "Golden Mile" (between Lourens River and Strand Central) offers one of the best and safest swimming beaches in South Africa - has in 2008 been awarded as the best family beach in the country.
