THE BEST PICTURES CAN BE TAKEN AT West Coast Village .
OTHER HAPPY SNAPS AT the beach where you can see Table Mountain in the background.
WHEN THE WEATHER’S GOOD, I LIKE TO to pop down to the beachfront and walk along the promenade or go for sundowners to look at the beautiful view.
WHEN THE WEATHER’S BAD, I LIKE TO sit indoors at one of the trendy pubs or coffee shops and watch Mother nature.
I THINK THE BEST TIME OF YEAR TO VISIT IS all year, BECAUSE West Beach seldom is as affected by the weather as the rest of Cape Town.
MY FAVOURITE BREAKFAST SPOT IS Mugg & Bean at West Coast Village.
FOR LUNCH, I SUGGEST anywhere in Big Bay…ther are lots of options to choose from.
MY FAVOURITE RESTAURANT IS Café Sophia, TRY THE tappas.
BEST LATE NIGHT SNACK FROM Cubana in Blouberg… which is only 5 minutes away from us.
MY FAVOURITE SPOT IS Moyo at Big Bay.
FOR A NIGHT OUT ON THE TOWN TRY the whole of the Blouberg beachfront because it is filled with pubs, restaurants and music.
IF YOU WANT TO MEET LOCALS, GO TO any of the above-mentioned places.
West Beach’s BEST KEPT SECRET IS that the beach is just over the hill, 3 minutes away.
MY FAVOURITE THING TO DO WITH FRIENDS IS hang out at the Big Bay for breakfast, lunch or dinner… awesome vibes.
FOR SOME LIVE MUSIC, I LIKE TO GO TO Blue Peter Hotel on the beach.
TO RELAX AND RESTORE MY SOUL, I LIKE TO go to one of the spas in the area or just simply walk along the beach, listening to the sound of the Atlantic.
IF YOU’RE FEELING ADVENTUROUS, TRY kite surfing or wind-sailing at Big Bay.
MY FAVOURITE WALK IS along the beach towards Melkbos, 10 minutes away.
MY FAVOURITE SHOPS ARE the ones at Big Bay.

WHEN MONEY’S NO OBJECT, I LIKE TO splash out at Moyo… a true African experience.
THE MOST UNUSUAL THING I SEE HERE IS how old and new blend together so well.
MY FAVOURITE WEEKEND GETAWAY IS Rochester guest House for solace, peace and tranquility.
WHEN I WANT TO GIVE BACK TO THE COMMUNITY, I look for local programmes that are running to help the locals.
I Love West Beach BECAUSE it’s vibey, modern feel, close to shops and the beach, but still tranquil and peaceful. Even though you are so close to everything, you still feel as though you are in some remote part of the countryside.
