Accommodation near Melkbaai Beach

Melkbaai Beach (Melkbaai meaning milk bay) is the main stretch of beach on Strand's 5-kilometre long beachfront. The town of Strand is situated roughly 50 kilometres from Cape Town along the N2 freeway. You'll find it tucked between the towns of Somerset West and Gordon's Bay.

Strand's beachfront is impressive to say the least, and as a result exceedingly popular, but there is no doubt that the Melkbaai section takes the cake where popularity is concerned. This section of the beach is just as scenic as other parts, what with the gorgeous False Bay stretching out ahead of it and the majestic Hottentots Holland Mountains towering over it. Come holiday season though and Melkbaai has the best vibe by far, thanks to the holidaying families which pull in to spend lazy summer days there.

This section of the beach is also packed with amenities - just one of the reasons it is particularly popular. Just behind the sandy section of the beach lies an amusement area boasting super tubes and mini-golf, which provide a change of pace and a small break from the beach itself. Melkbaai is also home to a massive tidal pool which offers endless hours of fun to adults and children alike.

Strand, and indeed Melkbaai Beach is famous around South Africa for being one of the safest swimming beaches in the country, an obvious draw card during the Cape's hot Mediterranean summers. After a swim, one can nip across to one of the restaurants or cafes which line this section of the beach to grab a milkshake, beer or glass of wine before heading home to rest up for another day at the beach.

Strand Reviews

Beautiful would just like to see police activity as there was an incident with very young people drinking and breaking the beer bottles in the street and throwing them at vehicles. When reprimanded by another lady they just laughed at her and carried on. Pips security also tried his best to reprimand them asked them to move away from area and clean up their mess which they just left lying around. Other than that we love Strand, clean and safe.

Beautiful area with lovely surrounds

You cannot choose the weather, but you can choose the comfort and the view. The Strand with its beautiful clean and white sand beaches for at least 2km's at your doorstep makes it one of the best settings in False Bay.
