Photo Caption: What do you see?

The first time we saw this photo by @clydeothomas we saw something totally different to what is actually there. We thought with all the rain and snow over the weekend it was an appropriate photo to share.

Approximately 5 kilometers from the city center and located alongside the Sea Point Promenade, is a small sandy beach called Milton Beach. The beach is separated from the sea by a rocky shelf. Although the coastline is rocky and not ideal for swimming, Milton Beach provides a safe and family-friendly place to swim and play with its very inviting tidal pool.

The Milton Tidal Pool is a natural seawater tidal pool situated at the heart Milton Beach. It is a rocky tidal pool which is very accessible and is particularly popular with families looking for a safe place to swim. This tidal pool is the perfect swimming spot for kids as it has shallow cool waters. You can also spend your time looking for small sea creatures or you can just simply have fun under the sun.

Aside from safe swimming, Milton Beach also offers exquisite ocean views and a less crowded place for sunbathing. It is also a perfect spot to see the beautiful Cape Town sunset. Facilities in Milton Beach include parking areas and drinking fountains. Pack your swimsuit, apply your sunscreen, grab your snacks and head to Milton Beach for a wonderful picnic day with your family and friends.
