“I could die very happy here”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

As you enter Blouberg you are immediately mesmerised by the kite surfers - takes you a while to figure out that they are actually surfing and flying a kite simultaneously. This is as close to heaven on earth as it gets - the beach is not crowded - obviously cannot swim due to the cold water but the most relaxing beach around. loved it

“The best view in the world!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

What more can you say! It is the very best few in the world and the closest you can get to Robben Island apart from on a boat. We were there on a clear day and it is such a special place!

“Bloubergstrand Beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

Miles of beach with great views of Table Mountain. On a windy day as many as 100 Kite surfers can be seen having fun.

“Windswept beach”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

You will love this beach if you are a windsurfer but it's not one where you might swim and sunbathe. However, the natural surroundings make it worth a visit.

“Plenty to see”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

Bloubergstrand is a long area of unspoilt beaches facing Table Mountain and Cape Town. The sea is a bit cold and the waves usually quite big but for an evening stroll or just to sit and watch the waves crashing in it is bliss. Take a walk further up to Big Bay and there are plenty of bars and restaurants to sit and watch the surfers and Kite surfers in action.
