Blouberg Beach

Blouberg Beach Review

Make the 25-km (16-mi) trip north from the city to the other side of Table Bay and you'll be rewarded with an exceptional (and the most famous) view of Cape Town and Table Mountain. Blouberg is divided into two parts: Big Bay, which hosts surfing and windsurfing contests, and Little Bay, better suited to sunbathers and families. It's frequently windy here, which is fine if you want to fly a kite but a nuisance otherwise. (The Kite Shop in Victoria Wharf at the V&A Waterfront has many colorful, high-tech numbers for sale.) Kite surfing has become extremely popular, and adrenaline junkies blow off work to come here and ride the waves. For safety, swim in front of the lifeguard club. The lawns of the Blue Peter Hotel are a favorite sunset cocktail spot, especially with tired kite- and windsurfers.
