Five hundred children got lost on Cape Town's beaches on New Year's day, a City of Cape Town official said on Friday.

All but 70 of them were reunited with their parents, mayoral committee member for safety and security JP Smith said.

The children were separated from their parents on Monwabisi, Strandfontein, Muizenberg, and Strand beaches on Thursday.

Law enforcement and disaster management officials managed to reunite the 430 children with their families by driving along the beach and using loud hailers to call for their parents to claim them.

The unclaimed children were handed over to police. Western Cape police could not immediately be reached for comment.
