accommodation in Bloubergstrand
Big Bay is one of
two Bloubergstrand beaches – the other is unsurprisingly called Little
Bay (or Small Bay) – and is a favourite surfing, windsurfing and kitesurfing
spot, drawing international enthusiasts to annual competitions.
Not only is it a great fun
family beach, the long, flat sandy Big Bay Beach is perfect for sun tanning,
walking, flying kites and just vegging out. If you can cope with ultra
chilly water the swimming and bodysurfing is safe and fun. A rocky point
divides the descriptively named Big Bay and Little Bay Beaches of Blouberg.
There’s a plethora of shops and eateries along the beachfront road.
Ever wondered which one of
Cape Town Beaches is best for taking photos of Table Mountain and the sea?
Well, Blouberg (Blue Mountain) is the spot from which the postcard images
are taken. Don’t miss the awesome sunset views – watch the face of Table
Mountain turn golden as the setting sun blazes across the Atlantic Ocean.
