Attractions In & Around Bloubergstrand


Table Mountain, Cape’s iconic rock face with its flat tabletop remains solid with almost every visitor that comes to Bloubergstrand! The silhouette of this spectacular mountain taken with a backdrop of cloud and sky and foreground of ocean and sand is one where famous photographers have stood to capture this iconic shaped mountain of Cape Town.


Exfoliate your feet as you dig your toes into the whitewashed sand of Bloubergstrand (Blue Mountain Beach). Look out across the sweeping blue Atlantic Ocean as cobalt currents carry your gaze toward Robben Island. Cast your line of sight across Table Bay to Table Mountain raising your hand to trace the amazing shape that symbolises all that is Cape Town.


This linear beach stretch has monumental views of the Mother City’s rock face and as a result, is not shielded by this mountain range from the wind which blows in kite-surfers and wind-surfers with gusts. Kids delight as their coloured kite sails take to flight on the end of strings.


Rockpools filled with ocean rock creature’s surface from frosty waves at the corners of the beach. For the less adventurous walk hand in hand with the horizon silhouetted by acrobatic displays of adrenalin surfers. Wind-free days may disappoint water sport enthusiasts but they create golden rows of tanners and a soft sandy arena for beach-bats and ballgames. Bring all your refreshments and beach accessories to make a play while the sun shines.



Milnerton Market has a collection of junk and gems sold in an open-air bazaar forum on a dusty seaside patch of ground. Trading next to the ocean the smell of the sea carries across the stalls all within sight of Table Mountain.


Hunters and gathers made up of bargain hunters on a tight budget to décor and fashion stylists, search for finds and collector’s items. The practical and the pretty as well as the impractical and the ugly are sold from rows and rows of car boots, caravans, bakkies and tents. The occasional sound of a freight train on the parallel tracks adds to the unpolished charm.


A registered NPO the market has the ambience of a general dealer with room for bartering. Vintage and valuable are hidden amongst defunct and derelict which only adds a sense of accomplishment to a find of pride.


Goods include but are not limited to exercise equipment, DIY tools, furniture, clothes, mobile phones, cosmetics, toiletries, crystal, jewellery, car parts, IT equipment, biltong, CDs and DVDs. Wander around looking at the market and its characters while munching on a hot pancake and sipping ginger beer. This market is not touristy and has a local feel with a genuine flea-market quality attracting regular visitors that frequent the stalls every weekend. A bazaar full of the beautiful and the bizarre.

Not to be confused with the Rietvlei Nature Reserve in Gauteng, Table View has its own Rietvlei Nature Reserve, located just off Pentz Drive.


Rietvlei boasts a wetland area that is home to a diverse range of birds including pelicans and flamingos. This is a bird watchers paradise! If you are a keen water sports enthusiast you will be pleased to know canoeing and waterskiing are also permissible on the lagoon.



Located just off the R27, the Koeberg Nature Reserve in Melkbosstrand provides information on the Koeberg Power Station as well as guides for two walking trails in the reserve. Visitors are treated to a range of fauna and flora with two major types of veld present in the reserve; West Coast Strandveld and dune veld.

There are two hiking trails in the Koeberg Nature Reserve. You will be able to pick up a good map and birding pamphlets at the info kiosk.


The Dikkop Trail is a circular walk (9.5 -23.3km) (meanders up north) which includes pristine strandveld, dune veld and a 2km walk along the beach. The walk is most spectacular in spring when the wildflowers along the route are in bloom. (reference: Koeberg visitors’ centre).


The Grysbok Trail is a two-hour walk starting at the Visitor Centre and includes a stretch along the beach and passes a salt marsh which is rich in birdlife in the winter months. The Grysbok Trail sidles around the main reactor, heading for the beach on the Cape Town side. It twists along the ridge of the dunes before winding down to the sea past a small salt-pan.



As you head into the Cape West Coast the first beach you’ll find yourself at is Melkbos Beach, it is only just past the suburbs of Table View and West Beach. Because of its close proximity to Cape Town you still have magnificent views of both Table Mountain and the historical Robben Island.


Melkbos is another popular water sports beach with great conditions for wind and kite surfing as well as being the home to the NSRI’s Station 18.
If you’re a boating enthusiast you’ll be glad to know there is a safe slipway to make use of. Take a long leisurely stroll along the stretch of beach and if you’re feeling full of bravado you can dash into the icy cold water, but this is not recommended without a wetsuit.



Mention a golf course in close proximity to an ocean (let alone the Atlantic Ocean) to a golfer and I guarantee that their first thought will be about the wind. Located just 15 minutes’ from Bloubergstrand, the Atlantic Beach Golf Course is an 18 hole Links-style course that lies only 700m off the Ocean and provides keen Golfers with exciting challenges, chips and shots that change with the winds.


With striking beauty, the green fairways wind their way over the 6295 metre course that is dotted with an archipelago of Fynbos islands and dominated by the breathtaking backdrop of Table Mountain across the majestic Atlantic Ocean. The course was designed to be enjoyable to the expert as well as the weekend warriors so come prepared for a challenge.


Mark Muller designed the course and golfers can enjoy fairways of well looked after Cynoden Gulf Green and greens of pristine Kikuyu. Atlantic Beach Golf Estate has committed to preserving indigenous fauna and flora and extends the request to players to join them in their cause.


The course is open to members, visitors, societies and golf days. Book your accommodation in Melkbosstrand and your tee-off time ahead to avoid disappointment. Club Facilities include a pro shop; fitness centre; driving range; practice area.



Tucked between spectacular landmarks, the Milnerton Golf Club provides elegant apex views of Cape Town and Table Mountain, Robben Island and the Rietvlei Conservation Area. In fact, just ten minutes north of the city bowl, the Milnerton golf club, on a clear day, is one the most visually beautiful and unique courses in South Africa.


With relatively few trees, one of the courses treasures is the Atlantic Ocean that lies in wait, together with the lagoon, to claim the balls of the golfers’ wayward hooks and sprays. The sound of the crashing waves drowns out other distractions and provides a sense of calm focus allowing to you drive, putt and wedge yourself into histories oldest and noble game.


The course is a Par 72 has 18 holes and is typical of the links-style course. After your initial nine, the halfway house is a great place to have a light meal before venturing out to finish your quest. After your round, you can enjoy your reward by spending a while in the club’s five-star lounge which is mere steps off the beach.

Sunsets are spectacular along this magnificent stretch of coast; so why not spend them with us? Perhaps you will be lucky enough to catch the swooping “table cloth” coming across the mountain all the while being protected from the notorious “Cape Doctor” south-easterly wind.


Visitors will be please to know that play here is open to the public. However, it is highly recommended that you book your hotel or accommodation in Cape Town and your tee-off times ahead to avoid disappointment.
