More info about Melkbosstrand
Named after the Milkwood tree, Melkbos (as locals refer to the town) on the west coast of South Africa, is only 30kms from Cape Town yet it still retains the feel of a relaxed, small seaside village.
Melkbosstrand lies in a marine protected area – where catching of West Coast rock lobster is forbidden – and two nature reserves, one privately managed.
The area is of great significance historically, it was behind Melkbosstrand’s Blouberg Hill in 1806 that the first colonists, the Dutch, took up arms against a British naval fleet. The Battle of Blaauwberg left the British victors, and so began South Africa’s second – and final – occupation under British rule. But for a brief period in our history, the country remains a member of the Commonwealth.
The long, white sandy beaches are flat with grassed-off areas above the high-water mark, making Melkbos an ideal family beach outing. Your children are never out... Show more
