Fodor's Expert Review Shimmy Beach Club
A bit of vibey Ibiza in laid-back Cape Town, this beach club is well regarded as a fun and stylish place to hang out, and it's even family-friendly, with a children's play area. You can dine in the oceanfront restaurant, spend a day on the private (man-made) beach, or swim in the pool. At night DJs come on board for an even livelier party atmosphere. Right at the harbor entrance, the club has taken trendy Cape Town by storm. On days when it's just too hot or raining, there's a covered pool and deck area. The restaurant is busy and a reservations-only spot at night. It sits in an unlikely spot, between two fish-processing warehouses, but there's no odor. Admission is free (as are children), but you are expected to buy food and drink.
