This must be one of the longest beaches with clean sand and exceptional views. I enjoy taking a stroll from Blouberg beach toward Milnerton, seeing Table Mountain, enjoying the sound and smell of the ocean, and drawing energy from one of the most spectacular natural environments. Wind free mornings are my best. Afternoons can be windy and very hot in... More

Just off the main road going North, it's worth making the detour to admire the panorama of Cape Town and Table Mountain. No matter what camera you have, people will think you're a professional photographer: white beach, deep blue sea, Table Mountain radiant against a blue sky...it doesn't come any better...and it's free!

Worth the visit to see all of Table Mountain behind the City of Cape Town. Sunset is a particular nice time of day to photograph across the bay.

The best the Cape has to offer. The view from Table Mountain is awesome. Lots of kite surfers who change the blue sky into a multi coloured rainbow. A definite place to visit is Blue Peter. And a long walk along the beach during sunset makes picture perfect memories!

Yes the beach is a lovely white sand. yes the distant view of CapeTown and Table Mountain is good. But it's a fair way out and the view isn't THAT good, hence my average rating. It was just pleasant...

Lived in Bloubergstrand for a year and just loved it. The beach has a perfect view of Table Mountain, is easy to access, and gorgeous water. As others have said, the Blue Peter is a lot of fun for sundowners- kind of a dive hotel with a great bar. The only negative is that Bloubergstrand is a bit isolated from... More

Lovely beach with the iconic view of Cape Town. My daughter had the privilege of living here on her gap year and loved this beach, summer and winter.
