More info about Strand
The Strand is a lovely small beachfront town overlooking False Bay, with an amazing view right across the bay to Table Mountain in Cape Town. It is built along a 5kms stretch of perfect straight beach, with a backdrop of the Hottentot Holland Mountains behind.
Along with Gordon’s Bay and Somerset West, both only 5 kms away, the Strand is a seaside resort and part of the scenic Helderberg Basin, entirely surrounded by thousands of acres of nature reserves and mountain ranges.
This little coastal town was first established as a tiny fishing village in 1712. The beach soon became well known as one of the best in the Cape, as it has a particularly safe and protected beach. The water at the Strand is an unusual exquisite translucent turquoise, as the sea here is shallow and clear.
The climate is mediterranean, with dry warm summers. Winters are moderate, though chilly in the evenings.
