The suburb of Bloubergrant is often confused with Bloubergstrand which lies just north of it, Bloubergrant lies north west of Cape Town, and is visually directly opposite Robben Island, we say visually because even though the island seems so close it is only accessable from the Victoria and Alfred Waterfront. This suburb is also just south of the beautiful West Coast of the Cape.
Bloubergrant and its surrounding suburbs are a hive of modern upmarket beach apartments, many of which have access directly to the beautiful white, sandy beaches which have become home to kite-surfers, windsurfers, wave surfers and sun worshippers. Another of the attractions of this area are the incredible and much marketed views of Table Mountain. Bloubergrant is only about a 15 minute drive from the centre of Cape Town and the Victoria and Alfred Waterfront, and only 10 minutes away from Canal Walk shopping centre which is renowned for its size and entertainment value.
Without having to travel any kind of great distance there are loads of restaurants, shopping centres and golf courses to keep you well busy. If you are just looking for somewhere to relax and unwind then there is no need to even leave the suburb unless you want to take in all the spectacular sights and scenes which make Cape Town such a world renowned destination.
Bloubergrant is also a perfect starting point for those wishing to explore the West Coast up the R27. Wine routes include the Swartland wine route and the Olifants River wine route, and many of the towns dotted in and around the R27 and N7 such as Malmesbury, Riebeek Kasteel, Citrusdal, Picketberg, Vredendal and Klawer provide wine tasting.
Bloubergrant is on the West Coast of South Africa and it has a mediterranean climate with warm, dry summers and wet, cool winters.
