We will be travelling to Cape Town in mid January and we will be renting a car. We are going to allocate a day to drive down to Cape Point. We would love to spend an hour or two for some R&R on one of the beaches along the way. Diaz Beach looks like a great beach in a surreal setting and it should fit our schedule nicely because we should be reaching the Point around midday (prime-time for the beach) but from the pictures I've seen of the beach it never seems to be occupied. Is Diaz beach too windy to enjoy or is the hike down to and back up from the beach to laborious for most tourist? We are in our early 30s and welcome the physical activity. Don’t get me wrong, we would love to have the beach all to ourselves. We just don’t want to waste time hiking down to the beach only to realize, “that’s why nobody comes down here”.
As always, thanks for the input.
