Boubergbeach is not really on the main tourist map and it should be. Here you get a wonderful panorama view of Table Mountain and Robben Island. Walk for hours along this beautiful white sand beach and if you are into a refreshing swim there are lots of safe places. On a windy day it is a treat to watch the... More

From here you can see Table Mountain, Lions Head, Signal Hill and the CBD. The beach is nice and clean but there isn't a lot else around. Come here for the perfect picture of Table Mountain during the day or at sunset. It is a bit of a drive out from central Cape Town but well wort it!

Perfect view of Table mountain, Robben Island. Pristine beach on a winters day. If you want to take the perfect photo of Table Mountain, then come over to Blouberg Strand. I believe the people who live on this side of Cape Town will want to keep it a secret.

Well it is great to go here when it is clear so you have that famous view of table mountain. It is also great to go when the wind is blowing if you are a keen photographer The kite surfers, wind surfers and surfers are amazing to watch and time seems to pass as you distress watching the action. Sunrise... More

Sunset view is fabulous. The beach is clean and relatively vacant apart from occasional walkers but might have been the time of year ie May. Can be windy but hey this is Cape Town! would stay in Bloubergstrand just so I can enjoy what I consider the best view of Table Mountain.

A great beach for surfers and to hang out. It can be tough to find a parking spot but there are always spaces available just a bit farther out,. Police checking for valid license decals and issuing fines if out of date. A great, relaxing surf hang out.

Extremely windy. Has some of the best views of the table top and really shows off the view often advertised. It gets very busy and parking is a problem. There are police officers all around and tickets for illegal parking are given fast and furiously. There were a lot of wind surfers despite the frigid temperatures. Not really a beach... More

Love this beach and to see all the people walking, jogging, walking dogs. All the dogs look really happy too! It's a lovely big, wide beach with ample parking and fantastic views. Perfect for a walk, day at the beach, romantic sunset picnic, walking dogs (lots of bins provided for humans to clean up). I just love it here, even... More
