Below is a list of other notable long distance swims around the Cape. These are mostly one-off swims that have only been done by a handful of swimmers, and for which no official fastest times are kept. The Milnerton to Blouberg swim (10.2km) has recently become an annual event and is quite popular. For casual training swims there is little to beat swimming across either Camps Bay or Clifton, which are very popular courses in summer.
