With Table Mountain looming majestically as the backdrop and gorgeous, family and dog-friendly beaches and the Atlantic Ocean near at hand, Bloubergstrand (which translates as ‘blue mountain beach’) – and close-by Table View, too – is arguably one of the more beautiful suburbs in the Mother City.
And while there is plenty to do in the area – wind surfing, ocean walks, photography and surfing to name a few of the popular activities – this time, it’s the eateries that have our attention locked on Bloubergstrand and surrounds.
Here are ten of the best eateries near to beautiful Bloubergstrand:
