Just on the other side of the Beacon Isle hotel, the unmissable building at the end of the tombolo (a sand spit linking the island to the mainland), is Robberg Beach, a great swimming beach that continues in a graceful curve all the way to Robberg Peninsula. You can get pretty good sightings of dolphins and whales just behind the back break. Amenities: Food and drink; lifeguards; parking; showers; toilets. Best for: swimming; sunbathing.
