It was a short visit to this place. Amazing beach side and beautiful scenery around. Me and my kids enjoyed a lot especially the water is very clean and clear so you can have a nice swim. But be careful don't go deep and don't let your kids go. Its amazing place so enjoy your trip. Definitely recommended.

With golden beaches and awesome views of Table Mountain this beach must be one of the most beautiful in the world. Would like to own a house there!

We normally head here for a walk down the beach & savour the views of table mountain. Park at Eden at Big Bay (big pick n pay supermarket car park) then head left down the beach to the news cafe about 3km away; watch the kite surfers, enjoy the turquoise sea & the white sand sparsely populated by the locals,...

A photographer and kite surfers dream! We live in Bloubergstrand and it is just gorgeous! It can get quite windy, especially in summer, so be aware of that, but beach walks at sunset is just magic!

This is the beach where you get the perfect view of Cape Town. The only negative thing is that you can have a very windy day on the beach, because it is so open. Also you find the Blue Peter hotel opposite, which makes it a good choice for a drink or something to bite.

We stopped here for lunch en route from Cape Town international airport to Paternoster. We chose it just for the view across the bay to Table Mountain. We weren't disappointed, it really is awe inspiring & to boot we enjoyed a great lunch at Petit Fours.
