We’d like to hear about it, whether it’s an urban strand like Cape Town, Port Elizabeth or Durban, or a remote spot where camping’s the only accommodation option. Your favourite beach in South Africa could be on the spectacular, wild Atlantic coast, or to the east, where tropical Indian Ocean waters lap the sand.
Send us your specific tips via GuardianWitness, including as much detail as you can in around 100 words (along with website, prices etc, if possible).
The best tips will appear in print in next weekend’s Travel section and the winner, chosen by Tom Hall of Lonely Planet, will receive a £200 hotel voucher from UK.hotels.com, allowing you to stay in more than 260,000 places worldwide. Submit your tip by clicking the blue button and using the text tab.
You’re welcome to add a photo if you own the copyright to it – but it’s the text we’ll be judging.
