Majestic Café (or any of the takeaway spots on Surfer's Corner beachfront), the loos on the beach, some lovely benches along the way, and - of course - the delightful St James beach. As you near Kalk Bay, there are numerous tantalising boutiques, markets, galleries and shops to explore before you hit the Brass Bell.
Locals walk this route almost year round, but - given our Mediterranean climate - Cape winters can be forbidding for the uninitiated. The coastal path should always be walked during daylight hours, regardless of season. In summer, walkers have the benefit of an earller sunrise and later sunset, but ideally the route should be walked between 8.00 a.m. and 6.00 p.m.
At certain times of day, month and year, the tide and surf prevent access to the coastal path. Again, watch the waves and check with friendly locals. If the sea looks rough and the spray at the start of the walk seems ominous, go along the Main Road pavement instead. You'll still enjoy a lovely walk. (P.S. Opportunistic pickpockets do sometimes lurk, so don't flash your valuables about and walk with a friend/in a group, or keep other strollers in sight.)
