Hit the Surf and Turf During Your Cape Town Self-Catering Stay
If you love surfing, there’s no better way to start the day than with a burn out on the breakers. Why not continue your seaside enjoyment with a plate of surf and turf overlooking the waves you’ve just mastered?
Here’s where you can get the best of both worlds with a great meal to match your Cape Town surfing experiences while staying in Cape Town self-catering accommodation.
Surfer’s Corner, Muizenberg
A great beginners surf spot, Surfer’s Corner has gentle waves that really come to life when the wind blows in from the north-west.
At Live Bait just a hundred metres down Beach Road you can tuck into a sirloin served up with prawns or calamari strips.
Long Beach, Kommetjie
To the left, to the right and everything in between is what you’ll get when you paddle out from this long stretch of sand about 40 minutes from the city centre.
For afters, take a drive to Fisherman’s about 2km away for a Lighthouse Meal of sirloin adorned with calamari and prawns, or a ‘surf and turf’ rump steak and calamari.
Glen Beach, Between Camps Bay and Clifton
This one is not for sissies. The waves are powerful and hollow, and the surroundings are gorgeous. Experienced surfers only need apply here, this spot gets quite crowded with territorial local surfers when the going is good.
Whether you can take the Glen Beach pace or not, you can still hit up surf and turf at Ocean Blue in Camps Bay. Expect a tender flame grilled steak topped with plump buttered prawns or tender calamari. Crowds a plenty? Then try out Tigers Milk for the best views of the surf and plenty of turf.
Big Bay, Bloubergstrand
Big Bay has got it all going on for surfers. The surf conditions blow with the wind, making it a good option for both seasoned pros and beginner surfers. The locals are exceptionally welcoming and the views of Table Mountain across the water are #Instagrammably world-famous.
Hang out with your new friends at the coffee shop overlooking the surf zone or head into Bloubergstrand for a surf and turf at the Blue Peter Hotel. Make sure you surf up an appetite before you arrive – you’ll get a 300g slab of rump topped with obese Mozambique prawns in garlic butter.
This swanky establishment has been a local beachfront icon since 1949 and dishes up these swish creations in its uber-smart dining room or casual deck overlooking the bay.
Pack Your Board Shorts
Come prepared to take on the South African surf during your stay in Cape Town self-catering accommodation. You’ll find no shortage of seafront to indulge your passion for sliding down the waves all around the Mother City and plenty of places to hire the equipment you need.
If you prefer your ‘surf’ on a plate with a glass of wine on the side, there’s plenty of that to go around too.
