Camps Bay beach safety focus

Posted by {Whale Cottage Camps Bay} on December 29th, 2009. Categories: {Beach news}

The City of Cape Town law enforcement staff are focusing heavily on the City’s Blue Flag beaches, of which Camps Bay is one, to keep them free of alcohol.   One is not allowed to drink alcohol on Cape Town’s beaches, according to a city by-law.

More than 400 law enforcement officers have been deployed at the Blue Flag beaches of Clifton 4th Beach , Camps Bay, Mnandi, Bikini Beach, Muizenberg and Strandfontein, reports the Cape Times.  They are issuing fines and confiscating alcohol on the beaches. 

On Saturday 26 December, a beach day traditionally popular with township and Cape Flats residents, 24 000 persons are estimated to have been on the Camps Bay beach area, despite cool weather.  On that day, 234 bottles of alcohol were confiscated and 74 fines were issued.   More than half the restaurants closed in Camps Bay on this day.  Similar influxes to Camps Bay are expected on 1 and 2 January. 

It is good to see that Metro officials are very visible in Camps Bay, with ticket book in hand, to fine illegal parkers outside Pick ‘n Pay, and in other areas with red no-parking lines.
