Braamfontein has a beach. It was only a matter of time, considering how this neighbourhood has come of age (again) over the past year.
The “beach” is sandy, comes with stripy umbrellas, deckchairs and cocktails and, most uniquely, it is the only beach with a view of the Nelson Mandela Bridge. The brainchild of property developer Adam Levy in collaboration with beer brand Grolsch, the beach is being marketed as the perfect post-Neighbourgoods Market stop. And if the photos that get posted on Instagram are anything to go by, it is a great location for giving in to the summer heat.
