The beach front is a year-round hotspot for jogging, cycling, roller-blading, and kite-surfing. On nearby Rietvlei nature reserve you can windsurf and water-ski, while the many beaches in the vicinity are a favourite hangout for local surfers. Mountain-biking and hiking are available at Koeberg Nature Reserve where you can spot Springbok, Eland, Zebra, Bontebok, Blesbok, angulated tortoises and even the odd Cape Cobra, to name but a few. Blaauwberg is also the gateway to the Cape West Coast where the annual flower season in Spring (August to October) remains one of nature's most magnificent displays of beauty. Between August and November you may even spot whales playing in the bay.
