The Blaauwberg region (or Blouberg for short), to the north of the Cape Town city centre on the Atlantic West Coast, is one of the most popular South African holiday destinations and a contrasting mixture of development and nature - vibrant business and industrial areas, fast-growing residential expansions, the biggest shopping centre in Africa, quaint seaside towns, 48km of white, sandy beaches, two nature reserves with abundant bird life and fynbos, natural wetlands and West Coast wild flowers.
The Blaauwberg area is popular for whale viewing and is a haven for all kinds of sea and land sports - surfing, angling, kite surfing, wind surfing, golf and motor racing - and the towns of Milnerton, Table View, Bloubergstrand and Melkbosstrand are delightful family and romantic honeymoon holiday destinations.
Table View sports vibrant shopping centres and is popular with young and energetic people. It is also the home of Sanccob, the famous rescue centre for polluted marine birds and penquins. Many of the self-catering homes and apartments offer excellent affordable accommodation and the bed and breakfast guest houses are of top quality.
