Visitors to Cape Town are urged to travel 20km around the bay to reach the elevated suburb of West Beach for the finest views of Table Mountain, Table Bay and Robben Island. This established residential suburb has some of the nicest homes too with parks, schools, hospitals and shopping centres nearby. The area experiences a high volume of guests during summer and in the windy season, international kiteboarders arrive to revel in the blustery conditions.
West Beach is a fairly new suburb, the first homes built in the mid-1900s. In the years that followed, additional suburbs and conveniences mushroomed that extended to the outer reaches of the Blouberg nature reserve and northwards to the boundaries of the Koeberg power plant, 15km from West Beach.
The suburb is highly sought after, both as a place of residence and a holiday destination.
