Best Beaches in Cape Town & Garden Route

Blouberg beach

Home to one of the most iconic views in the world, Cape Town’s Bloubergstrand is the place to gaze at one of the 7 Wonders of the world – Table Mountain. Robben Island is close and a great spot to take that “postcard” picture. It is here that the crazy cold water swimmers head out to Robben Island and some even swim back again. The long beach has great waves for surfing and supping. The beach is clean and safe for kids. Enjoy the many restaurants and bars nearby, sip an aperitif and watch the sunset over the Atlantic ocean.
