Capetonians warned to stay clear of Milnerton beach this weekend

Cape Town residents are warned to steer clear of Milnerton beach this weekend because of the expected high tide.

Drowning Prevention Manager at National Sea Rescue Institute, Andrew Ingram says the tide is going to be higher than normal on Saturday and Sunday afternoon.

The rocks that you would normally be able to stand on while fishing this weekend you won't be able to stand on them because of the high tides.

At Milnerton, there's been some destruction to the infrastructure so when the tide is high there's very little beach to be on and it's not safe.

The City of Cape Town has also released a notification that "the beach at Milnerton will remain closed in the interest of public safety”.
