Relax within the tranquil atmosphere of Myoli, just 15 minutes from Cape Town near Bloubergstrand Beach. In the nearby shopping centre, you can get everything for your personal needs.

Blouberg (the name literally means blue mountain).

For the famous postcard view of Table Mountain head to Blouberg Beach. Nothing beats a fresh early morning walk enjoying the extraordinary views. The beach is popular for kite-boarding– a sport that has taken the city by storm.

As you stand on Blouberg Beach, looking at one of the most beautiful mountains on earth, you can only imagine how the first Europeans must have felt like when they approached the southern tip of Africa. This is the most recognised view of Table Mountain and has become part of the city’s proud image.

The beach boasts some of Cape Town’s finest surfing, kite boarding, boardsailing and angling spots and is extremely popular during summer months. Several big beach events are held here over the December school holidays and it becomes very busy.

Take note that the whole area between Sunset Beach and Blouberg is one long stretch of white sand, and if Blouberg is too crowded head to the open spaces between these two beaches.

The coast of Blouberg offers long, sandy beaches frequented by dog walkers and kite flyers. The large crashing waves, supported by the regular strong southeaster winds of the Western Cape, makes Blouberg one of the fastest and hottest places worldwide for windsurfing. Wave jumpers and colourful hobie cats can be seen dotted against the azure of the sea. Fishing, sailing and boating trips are other popular activities. Robben Island, where Nelson Mandela was imprisoned, can be seen quite clearly from the beach at Blouberg.
