Known for the famous view of Table Mountain, Bloubergstrand is a popular beach area amongst locals and tourists alike.
Bloubergstrand is approximately 18km from Cape Town via the R27 and 25km from Cape Town International Airport via the M7. In 1806, after the Battle of Blaauwberg Frederick Louis Stadler took ownership of most of the farms in the area. Today, his residential home, known as “Ons Huisie” is still standing and home to a popular restaurant on the beach front.
It is a well known fact that the infamous South Easter Wind of Cape Town has been the cause for numerous shipwrecks over the years and the Blouberg Coastline is no exception.
With no less than 22 ships wrecked between 1647 and 2009, excluding ships that went down in the Table Bay and Milnerton area, the iconic view belies the treacherous waters of the Atlantic Ocean.
