Discover the beauty of South Africa’s beaches with MapStudio‘s Life's a beach: Your Round-the-Coast Guide. This guide explores 9 500 km of the best beaches from Alexander Bay along the coast to Sodwana, visiting hundreds of beaches and exploring a magnificent coastline. The author, Ann Gadd, has trumped up dunes, scrambled over rocky cliffs, swam as often as time would allow, hung off numerous piers and took over 6,000 photos. She sums up her experience as being aware that people are never as happy as on a beach, soaking up the sun, doing a radical off the lip or holding a rod. The guide gives the reader activities to do on land as well as on water with great sundowner spots and unique experiences. Find the best swimming beaches and national parks with overview maps indicating sites and handy tips for the best meal, best-kept secrets, child-friendly activities, star-rated activities and blue flag beaches. If you want to do activities besides soaking up the magnificent scenery, the guide explores hiking, walking, fishing, surfing, swimming, boat launches, bodyboarding, kayaking, kiteboarding, boardsailing, canoeing, and SUP. This guide is a fantastic keepsake for locals as well as anyone who enjoys water sports, and is light-weight for tourists to take back home as their travel memento. So, get off the couch and explore the wealth of fantastic options along South Africa’s shores.
