City Bloubergstrand

Bloubergstrand is located 25 kilometres north of Cape Town in the Western Cape Province and is the place to take the most beautiful pictures of Table Mountain. It is located on the cool Atlantic Ocean and the wind is usually present making for pleasant coolness in the hot summer. Blouberg is incidentally not named after the flatness of most famous mountain in South Africa, but the Blouberg which is also close by.

Bloubergstrand attracts large numbers of visitors annually from inside and outside the country for the magnificent view of Table Mountain and Table Bay as well as a view of Robben Island. Furthermore, there is a lot of entertainment on the beach and the most popular spot for surfing and kite surfing in the world is here, not surprising when there are waves of 1 to 3 meters in height!

In 1806 there was the Battle of Blouberg place where the British captured the Cape Colony from the Dutch. "Our Huisie" is the national monument with a long and colourful history and at the time a restaurant with a reputation. The well-known writer and illustrator of children's books Helen "Mollie" Lochner lived here in the 40s and at the end of the road Stadler in "The Great White house". Her family (Bam) lived here and the large wooden cross on the rock in memory of the family who drowned here in 1911. Unfortunately, the house did not survive time and there is now Guesthouse here.

The area of Bloubergstrand is covered by a Marine Nature Reserve and diving and fishing for the Cape rock lobster and perlemoen (abalone) is prohibited. Want to go fishing for local fish like the galleon, and then you need a permit. The local white and black mussel, a local delicacy, is also delicious if you caught it yourself! In season you can observe several whales and dolphins here and also the Cape fur seals which are often seen here.
