Melkbosstrand, Western Cape
Melkbosstrand is the first village one encounters on a drive north from Cape Town along the Cape's West Coast.
It's the perfect setting for avid photographers, as the golden sunsets and views of Robben Island and Table Mountain are unparalleled.
There are perfect surfing waves for those brave enough to take on the chilly Atlantic waters, and the beach is safe for swimming. Kitesurfing, windsurfing and boating are also some of the activities on offer here.
A special treat for holiday-makers is the Melkbosch Food Fair, which takes place on the first Saturday of every month from 9am to 3pm. Fresh, organic fruit and vegetables are sold alongside delightful homemade treats.
