Kleinmond Blue Flag Beach

Frieda Lloyd Explores

An open space where you can swim, play and pause.  That’s Kleinmond’s Sandown Beach.  With Blue Flag Status this Overberg beach is not just an amazing bit of coastline, it is also internationally recognised as an environmental asset to the rich tourism offerings of the Cape Whale Coast.
