Get ready to spend a stylish day laying on the beach or diving into refreshing waters in our men’s swim shorts. For a clean and simple, yet vibrant pair of swim shorts, our Originals will make you look like the king of the (sand) castle. If you’d prefer Long swim shorts, you’ll find them in our characteristically playful patterns too. We are all for protecting our oceans, and have developed an Eco range that is environmentally friendly and made from recycled materials. If you want to look even more bold on the beach, our Artist Collection is the solution for your beach adventures. Granadilla Swim keeps your beach day fresh and fashionable, regardless of which swim shorts you choose.

From conception and design, to manufacturing and packaging, our swim shorts are inspired by and created wholly in South Africa. We believe strongly in the ethos:  “Made by South Africans, in South Africa, for the world”

Granadilla’s original concept was inspired by the enterprising granadilla lolly sellers of Clifton 4th Beach in Cape Town. These resourceful entrepreneurs truly embody the spirit of South Africa, and we want our brand to do good things for the country we’re so proud to call home.

Our Original, Longs & Kids shorts are made from high quality, quick-drying micro fibre and include built-in mesh briefs for ultimate comfort. More than just swimwear, we want our men’s swim shorts to make a statement! Vibrant and colourful, they're designed to take you from beach to bar with effortless style.

Our innovative Eco-Originals range –our highest quality product to date– are perfect for the environmentally conscious man. They are made from 100% recycled fabric, using fishing nets and plastics removed from the ocean. Not only do they help contribute to cleaning up our oceans, they dry even faster than our Originals and boast an ultra-soft finish.

All our men’s swim shorts include an elasticated waistband and drawstring for convenience, versatility and comfort.

Our Eco-Originals swim shorts are all about turning trash into treasure. Using fabric that is made from 100% recycled materials, they actively contribute to the removal of plastics and fishing nets from the ocean.

They're also of exceptional quality. They feature a delightfully soft finish, built-in mesh briefs for comfort, and a drawstring and elasticated waistband. On top of this, they dry 50% faster than traditional shorts. Coupled with our signature bold prints, these eco-conscious men’s swim shorts make a statement on both a fashion and an ethical level!

We do! Take a look at our longer men’s swim shorts, ideal for the slightly more conservative trend-setter. Same quality, same bold designs, but also suitable for wearing off the beach and about town. Like our standard shorts, our long swim shorts are made from quick-drying micro fibre in a soft finish.

If you're looking for inspiration, you really can’t do much better than the uniquely vibrant and diverse city of Cape Town – and indeed the whole of the Western Cape. From the iconic African Penguins of Boulder’s Beach and the majestic whales of Hermanus, to the colourful Muizenburg Huts and our signature Granadilla Lollies, our products are inspired by the essence of Cape Town in the summertime!

As part of our commitment to supporting the local economy, we partner with some amazing South African artists to bring you these unique, eye-catching designs. All the swim shorts in our Artist Collection are limited edition, so you know you're buying something really special! Some of the local artists whose prints we feature include Walter Battiss, Vladimir Tretchikoff and Nelson Makamo.

We’re all about inclusivity, so our sizes range from XS to XXL. Because of their elasticated waistband, you’ve got a pretty decent amount of ‘wiggle room’ should you overindulge a little over the summer break! These are our standard sizing suggestions:

  • XS - 28/30

  • S - 30/32

  • M - 32/34

  • L - 34/36

  • XL - 36/38

  • XXL - 38/40

Lengthwise, standard shorts fall a few inches above the knee in the classic swim trunks style. Our longer shorts pack an additional 7cm to fall below the knee.

Is your kiddo also an aspiring trend-setter? Then you're in luck, as we stock various swim shorts for the little guys. Sizes are suitable for kids aged between 2 and 11 years, and thanks to the elastic waist, they’ll be able to get a fair amount of use out of them before they need a larger size.

Our kid’s swim shorts are a great way to match dads and kids! As an added bonus, our colourful designs make it that much easier to keep a beady eye on your little guy!

We have a permanent store located in Cape Town, and popups that appear around the country over summer. Our Cape Town shop is at the Watershed at the stunning V & A Waterfront. You can find directions and the Google Maps links here.

We also have over 50 national stockists, so please fill in your location deets here, and we’ll point you to the one nearest to you.

Without the amazing ice lolly sellers that so define the beaches of Cape Town, our brand wouldn’t be here. As such, we feel it’s important to give these incredible entrepreneurs a hand-up from time to time.

So far, we’ve helped organize and facilitate a lift club for them, and given them what might be the world’s coolest uniform in the shape of our special Clifton Edition Shorts. Our work with these local legends is on-going.

And of course, none of this would be possible without our stunning beaches and ocean. That’s why our Eco Originals men’s swim shorts line actively helps to remove plastic pollution from the sea, and gives all the Eco Warriors out there a great opportunity to play their part.

For regular shipping - A R50.00 shipping fee will be added to all orders. Please note that we have a minimum spend on our website of R289.00.
