Day trips and coastlines - Long Beach Kommetjie Day Trip - Part 3

December 06, 2018

Long Beach is one of Cape Town’s most striking beaches, with a massive length of 8 kilometers of soft white sand, one lovely walk even passes a well-preserved 1900th Century shipwreck, known as the Kakapo.

While in the area you really must go and visit Imhoff’s farm, we have written about them extensively in the past and they are a must-see in the area. 

Also there is the Noordhoek Farm Village, with everything artisan, bespoke and organic that you could possibly wish for. 

Each of these excursions is also made exponentially better by tye fact that they are accompanied by a breathtaking and unforgettable drive through beautiful scenery.

Day trips and coastlines - Big Bay Day Trip - Part 2

December 05, 2018

A little up the West Coast past Milnerton, in its own little bay next to Bloubergstrand, Big Bay is a popular spot for surfing, wind surfing and kite surfing. 

This is the beach with that view, the postcard one of Table Mountain, looking like it is cut out against the blue African Skies. 

A great place for a stroll-through is “Eden on the Bay” - with shops, restaurants and a series of pedestrian walkways, courtyards, open spaces and, of course, the beach.

Big Bay beach has Blue Flag status, making it one of the premier beaches in the world, after a picnic on the white sands drinking in the beauty of the bay, you will know why!

Alternatively head to YoGoodness for a healthy bite of the Inside Lounge for some tapas acnd cocktails.

Day trips and coastlines - Historic Muizenberg Day Trip - Part 1

December 04, 2018

Muizenberg is one of those places that your hind-brain knows from old pictures of the Cape. The bright little painted beach houses, the ice cream on the promenade, there is something exceedingly familiar about Muizenberg which makes it a great place to go spend a day and explore.

Located on the point where the shore of the Cape Peninsula curves round to the east on the False Bay coast, Muizenberg has some of the best views you’ll ever see and a thriving seaside community.

Historically an affluent seaside town for holiday makers, Muizenberg had been frequented and loved from people as varied as Cecil John Rhodes to Agatha Christie!

There are also loads of little cafe’s, shops and antiquities dealers for you to spend the morning browsing and eating.

All in all, an amazing area.
