  • This was a very good experience. This is the most beautiful place and so safe. I will definitely go back to Blouberg cause it was such a beautiful place  more »
  • Here's your answer for a relaxing outing. You can drive along, walk the promenade or the beach or just park your car right next to the beach facing the ocean and the beautiful view of Table Mountain.....  more »
  • Windy in summer but beautiful rest of the year. Long beaches to walk on but cold water
  • Secluded beach with access to restaurants. Fantastic views of Table Mountain and friendly to all ages. Further south along the beach is a huge grassed area with paths and equipment for kids to play on. Remember that the water is cold and the wind often blows so there are kite surfers at some areas, and you have to watch out for blue bottles (they can sting!). Overall, a great beach to visit and enjoy.
