Sightseeing
Exfoliate your feet as you dig your toes into the white washed sand of Bloubergstrand (Blue Mountain Beach). Look out across the sweeping blue Atlantic Ocean as cobalt currents carry your gaze toward Robben Island. Cast your line of sight across Table Bay to Table Mountain raising your hand to trace the iconic shape that symbolises all that is Cape Town. This linear beach stretch has monumental views of the Mother City's rock face and as a result is not shielded by this mountain range from the wind which blows in kite-surfers and wind-surfers with gusts. Kids delight as their coloured kite sails take to flight on the end of strings.

Big Bay Beach and its contemporary, Little Bay, are the two beaches of Bloubergstrand in Cape Town. These beaches are divided by a rocky point. This area is famous for its awesome surfing, kite-surfing and wind-surfing, attracting sportsmen and - women from all over the world to participate or be enthusiastic spectators. There are annual competitions held here for these very reasons. Big Bay is the perfect family beach as it boasts long sandy stretches and uninterrupted views of the ocean and Table Mountain in the distance. Swimming (in very chilly water), sun-tanning and simply enjoying the day with friends and family make this the hotspot of memories. This beachfront is equipped with dining options and shops and is known for its spectacular sunset displays.

Definitely book Table Mountain & Robben Island in advance! Weather permitting, these activities always have long lines and if you have a ticket, you will still stand in a line, but a much shorter one!

Wat je mee moet nemen
EVERYTHING!
Cape Town loves to change it's weather on a daily basis. Always carry a light jacket with you as it can get windy and chilly in the evenings. Even when the sun is out, the wind can be very cold.
Manieren om te besparen
General Grocery Stores
Pick n Pay/Checkers/Spar are great grocery stores. Buy ingredients to cook meals yourself so that you don't have to go out every day for meals and spend lots of money.
