About Melkbos Beach

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.
