Cape Town's beaches are truly some of the best in the world.
The water is freezing, yes, but the sandy white beaches and views of both ocean and mountains are unmatched.
Both locals and international tourists frequent these beaches, especially during high season, lighting up Instagram in the process.
A quick search under some beachy hashtags on Instagram led me to a round-up of Cape Town's most Instagrammed beaches:
