 Access

Take the M3 towards Lake side Golf Course. Go past the off-ramp towards Tokai, up to the T junction and turn left. When your at the Main Road intersection keep going straight (and I mean STRAIGHT) all the way until you get to a fun little beach nestled between graffiti spewn walls and a train track.

 Additional Information

The spot can be VERY inconsistent at times, and mainly works well in Strong North-West winds, so only go in bad weather conditions or strong winds otherwise your just wasting your time. It quite shallow at times, so you can just push of the bottom. At times, I've surfed it while skimming over 3 inches of water! The average break is about 2 to 4.5 foot, but a few metres to the right It been 5 to 6 foot before, like I said, in gail force winds! When the winds are good this break serves up mini barrels, and its great fun. No need to have car troubles, as you can see the carpark from the beach, and there is normally a bergie posing as a car gaurd.

Atmosphere

Pretty deserted, except for all the Japanese tourists on the nearby Fishhoek beach. Its pretty cool, 'cos while you surf there is a train track right by the wall, so you can wave and claim while the commuters watch you..

A great spot when the winds are right, and has a chilled atmosphere next to the wall and the tracks...

beware of locals ! they really do bite. - false bays best kept secret when it works(very ,very seldom),recent times have seen a lot of shark action in this bay , although the jonnys have always been there, it seems they enjoy a game of " nibble on the human " every now and then, so dont piss in your wetsuit .ahoy
