Blouberg: Fit for royalty and you
Category General News
When Prince Harry and Meghan Markle visited Cape Town, the attraction was instant. The couple danced on the street with locals. They savoured the taste of Cape Malay cuisine. They explored South Africa's rich history at the District Six Museum. They hit Monwabisi Beach and touched base with some of the Cape's charitable organisations.
"Cape Town ... I love this place," gushed Prince Harry to the media. "This would be an amazing space to base ourselves."
Sadly, the Sussexes opted for Canada instead. A big mistake. The Mother City is the epitome of luxurious living. If you're into the finer things, take your throne in one of its most scenic suburbs - Blouberg.
Eat your heart out
Welcome to foodie heaven. Blouberg is well-known for boasting some of the best restaurants in the world. For a breathtaking view of Table Bay and Table Mountain, book a table at seafood restaurant, On the Rocks. In the mood for Indian? Try a dish at the award-winning The Indian Chapter. Or perhaps you want a 100% fresh cocktail bursting with flavour? That would be Homespun by Matt.
Shop until you drop
When your crown is losing its shine, it's time for a new one. Blouberg's retail experience will rise to any need or occasion. Bayside Mall has a friendly vibe and everything you need under one roof. Table Bay Mall is an elegant and spacious shopping destination. For variety and convenience, pop into West Coast Village.
Ready, set, travel!
Every jet-setter needs the right base from which to start their travels. Blouberg's proximity to Cape Town International Airport makes it ideal - about a half an hour drive. To get around the city, you can use MyCiTi buses which have Blouberg on their routes.
Expand your mind
In the days of old, aristocrats would take a grand tour abroad to enhance their education. In Blouberg, you won't have to go far. You can visit the first South African perfume museum, stop by Bloubergstrand Public Library, or check if Blouberg International School is hosting a musical production.
Ramp up your social calendar
You have things to do, places to be, and people to see. Thankfully, Blouberg can help your inner social butterfly soar. There's always an event happening. In February alone, you can join a group yoga session, parkrun, or visit a food and craft market.
Embrace your passion
What do royals all have in common? Despite a busy schedule, they make time for the pursuits they love. Kate photographs, William rides bikes, Harry plays polo, and Meghan does yoga. In Blouberg, you'll have a variety of options. There's surfing at Bloubergstrand Beach, hiking at Blaauwberg Nature Reserve, or volunteering at the Southern African Foundation for the Conservation of Coastal Birds.
Make a killer investment
It's not a big secret that the royal family own a ton of properties. They know the value of real estate - a generally stable investment with tax incentives. If you're looking to add to your property portfolio, consider Blouberg. The suburb is popular for its closeness to the beach, top schools, shopping centres and family-friendly amenities.
