Cape Town Blaauwberg



Blaauwberg, also known as Blouberg, meaning “Blue Mountain”, is the gateway to the West Coast. The “Blue Mountain” refers to the hill in Blaauwberg where the British encountered the militia in the Cape in 1806, a very historical event that gave rise to the British occupation of the Cape. Blaauwberg is well known as the area where you get the picture postcard view of Table Mountain. With endless white beaches, an advanced tourism infrastructure and huge residential development, Blaauwberg is probably the fastest growing area in South Africa. The first town in Blaauwberg was Milnerton and this has given rise to a huge ”city”, stretching all the way up to Atlantis/Mamre and includes Table View, Bloubergstrand, Melkbosstrand, Parklands, Sunningdale plus many other areas.

Some of the major tourist attractions in the area include Kite Beach in Table View, acknowledged as one of the 3 top kitesurfing spots in the world, Century City, the huge development that includes Canal Walk, the largest shopping Centre in South Africa and Ratanga Junction theme park, one of the largest theme parks in the country. There is also the West Coast Ostrich Ranch, Ysterplaat Air Force Museum, Rietvlei, a major wetland that is a significant breeding ground for migratory birds, SANCCOB, which deals with seabirds that have been polluted by oil spills and a number of historical monuments.

With some delightful hotels, a huge number of self catering establishments and guest houses, visitors are always welcome in this beautiful region of Cape Town. For comprehensive information on all aspects of Blaauwberg, please visit www.blaauwberg.net, the official website for this area.
