About Table Bay Beaches

North of Clifton, ±20 km from Cape Town, the beaches here include Blouberg’s Big & Little Bay, Table View, Dolphin and Milnerton. Go there for surfing, windsurfing, kitesurfing, kite flying, swimming, paddle skiing. The fact that the Table Bay beaches are great for windsurfing and kitesurfing should alert one to the wind factor.

Did you know? Cape Town’s beaches are amongst the cleanest and most beautiful beaches in the world.

Table Bay’s beaches can be unpleasant when the wind blows but nothing beats these Cape Town beaches for their view of Table Mountain and Robben Island and the miles of sand on which to stretch your legs.

Blaauwberg's beaches are synonymous with kitesurfing. See this link to view more photographs of kite surfing in this area. The acrobatics of kitesurfers will keep you entertained if you’re not working on your tan or taking a quick dip.
