Kite-surfing into the sunset – Cape Town Tourism Flickr pic of the day
Bloubergstrand lies on the west side of Table Bay, and is a popular spot with surfers and kite-surfers.
Andrew says, “We live in rainy Manchester, England. This was our first visit to South Africa. This beach is a very special place for me and my partner Rachel because I proposed there (and she said yes). I had spent all afternoon looking for the perfect place to ask her.
“Dolphin Beach was perfect because the sun was setting as we got there and it is a fantastic view of Cape Town and Table Mountain. It was also extremely tranquil, with only a few kite-surfers about. We walked along the beach for a while afterwards and then retired to our villa in Blouberg to have a braai, our favourite South African custom (along with malva pudding), and a glass of champagne,” he continues.
