A Day on Cape Town's West Coast

List View
Map View
As you head north of Cape Town, you'll be struck by the change of landscape. The West Coast has a rustic feel, making it a popular summer getaway for Capetonians. First, visit the beach at Bloubergstrand for a Table Mountain backdrop photo opportunity. Next, stop in Darling to taste the brews at Darling Brewery. End your day kitesurfing on the flat lagoon at Langebaan. The best and most popular time to visit the West Coast is in late August or September when the wildflowers are in bloom.

One hours drive from Cape Town, Die Strandloper is a restaurant unlike any other... right on the beach, with the sand under your feet and fishing nets above your head, the restaurant functions almost completely off the grid. No electricity means...

Bloubergstrand and Table View are only a half-hour or so from Cape Town's city centre, but are in an area often overlooked by travelers. On a clear day, the view from the beach is a postcard-perfect photo backdrop of Table Mountain. You can also...
