FALSE BAY AN OCEAN LOVER'S PARADISE

False Bay beckons surfers and paddle boarders with a diverse playground catering to every skill level.

From the gentle, rolling waves of Muizenberg, ideal for beginners honing their skills with Surfshack’s expert guidance, to the powerful reefs of Danger Bay and Kogel Bay, challenging even experienced surfers. Paddleboarders are equally spoiled, with calm waters in sheltered coves along the stunning coastline, perfect for leisurely exploration, while adventurous souls can tackle the renowned Millers Point downwind run, a thrilling journey across the bay with stunning coastal views. With consistent swells and the dramatic backdrop of the Hottentots Holland mountains, False Bay promises an unforgettable experience. 

And for those seeking a unique paddleboarding adventure, Simon’s Town offers a captivating experience. Glide across the calm waters surrounding the  Naval Harbour with Surfshack, weaving between majestic yachts and basking in the bustling atmosphere. Witness playful seals basking on the jetties or for the more adventurous and athletic paddle past  the famous penguin colony waddling along the shores. Paddle towards the dramatic granite boulders, spotting colourful marine life amidst the kelp forests. Whether you’re a beginner seeking a serene escape exploring a vibrant harbour, or looking for a challenge paddling past the penguins, or a seasoned paddler, False Bay has something for everyone.
