Exfoliate your feet as you dig your toes into the white washed 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 iconic 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.
Rock pools 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 play while the sun shines.
