The British won their 1806 battle for the Cape on this beach facing Table Bay. The panoramic view it provides of Table Mountain is its most famous feature, although the seemingly eternal wind makes it popular with kite-surfers and windsurfers; watching them ride the waves on the weekends is a very impressive sight. The village of Bloubergstrand itself is attractive, with picnic areas, some long, uncrowded, windy stretches of sand, the good pub Blue Peter, and several other places to dine with ocean views. From the city follow Marine Dr and West Coast Rd for 18km to reach Bloubergstrand.
