Blouberg: An Area Overview
Category General Information
The long coast of Blouberg has been one of Cape Town's defining features since the days of the early settlers. With the world renowned Table Mountain providing a backdrop for exclusive homes nestled along the curving coast. In the 60's and 70's the white sandy beaches were used as a picnic get away for families and holiday makers looking to get away from the centre of the city and head to the blue beaches to relax.
Gradually as the population grew in Cape Town, homes begun being built in Milnerton and Milnerton Central, along the lagoon, where wild horses would roam in people's gardens when they felt safe. Soon the coast was dotted with communities, living the suburban dream. A small main road was used each day to drive to work and back in Cape Town's City Centre, while still maintaining a gorgeous beach lifestyle at home.
Today, Blouberg has many areas filled with a variety of people. Nestled between the West Coast road and the Blouberg beachfront, Bloubergrant, Blouberg Rise, Blouberg Sands and West Beach.
