Best view of the mountain!

BLOUBERGSTRAND

Known for its breathtaking views of Table Mountain, 15 kilometres north of the city centre, is Bloubergstrand, a seaside resort town, along the shores of Table Bay. Originally a fishing village and holiday resort for farmers living inland, Blouberg is a must-visit for those insta-worthy opportunities.

 

The name Bloubergstrand literally means ‘blue mountain beach’ in Afrikaans and is derived from Blaauwberg, a nearby hill. The beach is a popular location for a classic post-card perfect views of Table Mountain across the bay and the historic Robben Island.

 

Bloubergstrand is divided into two beaches – Big Bay and Little Bay.  Big Bay is a long stretch of beach that is popular with kitesurfers due to the epic winds and is a great family beach – perfect for lazy walks with the kids. Little Bay is popular with those looking to picnic and braai on the lawn covered braai areas and nearby rock pools.

 

Surfers come from far and wide across the globe to test their skills in the waves of Big Bay, tackling the high winds to catch that perfect wave.

 

Falling within a marine nature reserve, home to Cape rock lobster, abalone, white mussels, and in season, southern right whales, killer whales, humpback dolphins, Haviside’s dolphin and Cape fur seals. 

 

With magical views, Blouberg is home to many great restaurants, including Ons Huisie, as it is now known as, which was declared a national monument in 1973.  This popular restaurant not only boasts spectacular views, delicious West Coast cuisine, and a picture-perfect view of the Atlantic Ocean and Robben Island.  The long beaches and lawns alongside the sand, sun worshippers are spoilt for choice to enjoy sundowners watching the sunset over Table Bay and Table Mountain.
