6 Reasons Bloubergstrand is the Ultimate SA Vacation Spot this December


Known for breathtaking views and plenty of sporting activities, Bloubergstrand lies 17km from Cape Town city centre.  Alongside Bloubergstrand, the seaside suburbs of Lagoon Beach, Dolphin Beach and Big Bay surround the magnificent waters of Table Bay.  If you are uncertain where to spend this coming holiday season, think no further.  Here’s why Bloubergstrand is the perfect holiday destination:

Great Deals this Season

Bloubergstrand offers a variety of accommodation options for families, couples and groups of friends with the convenience of good public transport and generally close walking proximity to beaches, restaurants and shops.

The drought in Cape Town over the past seasons resulted in more competitive pricing on holiday rentals.  Although the water situation is slightly better, for the time being, you still stand a chance to snag a great deal for your accommodation this year!  Not sure where to stay?  Check out some amazing options here.


The magnificent Table Mountain towers over the city bowl across the Atlantic waters, while Robben Island seems deceptively close off the shores of Table Bays white sandy beaches.  Vast nature reserves with incredible fauna and flora are also in the near vicinity.  The view from Bloubergstrand just never gets old.  Its grandiosity will amaze you anew every single day.

Adventure Activities

Here you will never run out of things to do.  Regardless of your fitness level or adventure threshold, there truly is something for everyone.  From long beach walkways, nature reserve hikes, biking, golf and sandboarding to Airsoft and farmers markets, there is always plenty to explore.  Over the other side of the bay, you can take a trip to Robben Island, abseil, paraglide and also take an ocean safari in search of dolphins and whales.


As one of the world best kitesurfing spots, Bloubergstrand has a host of watersport activities on offer for both novices and pros.  SUP, surf, bodyboard, windsurf and paddle, there is always something new to try on the waters.

Rain or Shine: Fun Guaranteed

No need to worry about the unfortunate event of bad weather casting over a day of your holiday.  There is plenty to keep you, and the entire family entertained regardless of Mother Nature’s mood.  Windy days make for great kite and windsurfing, however, if you’re not up for the enthralling waves Canal Walk shopping centre waits to embrace you with loads of stores and eateries.  Indoor Rock Climbing can be enjoyed in Paarden Island and closer to the City Centre you can visit the V&A Waterfront.  In Cape Town, there is, of course, always time for wine tasting and this may be the perfect day to savour woody and fruity notes of local expertise.


Even if you are not planning to plunge into Cape Town’s cool waters and big waves, stick your toes in the sand, catch some summer sun and enjoy the therapeutically magnificent views from the beach.  Lagoon Beach, Bloubergstrand and Big Bay all offer fantastic family beach settings with plenty of opportunities to swim, explore rock pools, support an ice-cream van and build sand castles.  Get your sunscreen on and enjoy the sunshine.
