One of the most photographed scenes in the world is the awe-inspiring panorama of Table Mountain rising over the blue waters of Table Bay. To see it for yourself, visit the 48km of white, sandy beaches of Blaauwberg. Explore vast stretches of natural wetlands; enjoy whale watching, the famous West Coast flowers and the fine wilderness area of both Rietvlei and Koeberg Nature Reserves where paths through the fynbos lead via exceptionally beautiful cliffs, dunes and beaches. Blaauwberg is known as one of the country’s top surfing, kite-surfing and angling spots.
It is also one of the best kept secrets of the Whale Route and also offers year round dolphin watching. Here you will experience some of the Cape’s finest whale watching during the season [July to September] when the migratory whales visit the Bay to mate and calve. Milnerton and the Atlantic Beach Club in Melkbosstrand offer two outstanding golf courses. The Cape Wine Route, outdoor fish restaurants and numerous eateries are on your doorstep.
