  Home | Local Attractions | Beaches | Big Bay Beach

Big Bay has a pleasant little beach with great views of Table Mountain and especially of Robben Island.
The beach has two rocky points that extend out into the sea creating a small bay in which surfing, windsurfing and swimming are popular. The beach itself has nice white sand with a few pebbles scattered around.
To the left of the beach is Blouberg Beach which you can reach on foot and to the right there is a long section of beach which is great for walking. As with the rest of the beaches in Table Bay, when its windy it can be quite unpleasant, making calm days the best time to visit Big Bay Beach. There are refreshments available at the Café which is situated behind the lifeguard stand.
