THE WESTERN SEABOARD – WHERE CAPE TOWN’S STORY BOOK COMES TO LIFE

Here's what's on in the area over this holiday season

Wednesday 5th of December 2018

No trip to the Western Cape is complete without a visit to the Western Seaboard, where iconic views of one of the world’s Seven Wonders of Nature, Table Mountain, comes to life in breathtaking 3D. Framing a beautiful bay and beachfront lifestyle, you will often find it providing a glorious background to a sky of kites, making this coastline famous for kite surfers from all over the globe.

And while the sea, mountain and skies might steal the show, we love the Western Seaboard because it offers something for everyone and is only a short trip to the winelands or the hustle and bustle of Cape Town’s city centre.

Things you’ll (really) love to do:

  1. Birdwatch or picnic at the Table Bay Nature Reserve.
  2. Experience the best local cuisine at one of the vibrant local eateries in Blouberg.
  3. Visit the Killarney International Raceway if you love cars.
  4. Enjoy a round of golf at the Milnerton Golf Club or one of SA’s Top 10 residential Estates – Atlantic Beach Estate.
  5. The fact that Melkbos Beach achieved Blue Flag status is another reason why this destination is a necessity.
  6. Enjoy a unique African dining experience at Moyo, one of the most popular restaurants in the area.
  7. Fly a kite on beach, or get a kiteboarding lesson.
  8. Surf the local beach break at Big Bay or Bloubergstrand.
  9. Have a lazy sundowner on the grass at The Blue Peter Hotel, a locals favourite.
  10. Visit the cinema, or shop at one of Canal Walk’s 400 stores.

If you fall in love with the laid back lifestyle of the Western Seaboard and decide to make it your home, or home-from-home, we recommend contacting a Pam Golding Properties area specialist to find out about the diverse range of suburbs offering everything from expansive villas, holiday apartments, large family homes and secure lock-up-and-go’s. And as an investment, the Western Seaboard has proven to be sturdy choice with house price inflation remaining at a steady 11.2% mark for the first half of 2018, making it one of sought-after Cape Town’s top performing areas in terms of house price growth.

Property on the Western Seaboard is perfectly suited to those looking to remain close to the main highways without feeling confined by the tall buildings and pace of the city. Schools, shops, commercial centres and the beauty of nature are all a short drive away, making property for sale or rent, whether on the coast or further inland, an enviable option within a varied community.”  Emarie Campbell, Pam Golding Properties, Area Principle, Western Seaboard.
