The twenty minute drive from Cape Town city centre takes you alongside the harbour, through Paarden Eiland Industria and past the extremely popular Milnerton Flea Market. From there you skirt past Tableview, with its typically coastal feel, until finally you find yourself at the entrance to Bloubergstrand.
Cape Town may well have more scenic routes than this one, but once you veer off the busyness of Otto du Plessis drive and into Blouberg Village, you quickly realise why the drive is worth the effort. As you head down towards the sea, you're presented with a view so utterly breathtaking that most visitors are literally lost for words. This is arguably one of the best views of the iconic Table Mountain, and is the subject matter of many-a-postcard which can only hope to capture the essence of the spirit of Cape Town. In reality – it is much better.
The hotel is on the popular Little Bay beach - frequented by wind and kite surfing enthusiasts (this is, in fact, one of the top three kite surfing destinations in the world!). Other available water sports include jet-skiing and fishing.
If you're overcome with the need for retail therapy, it's a relatively quick drive to the V&A Waterfront. From there you can visit Robben Island or visit the hundreds of shops in the centre. Alternatively Century City Shopping Mall is a 15 minute drive away. (One of South Africa's largest malls)
The Blue Peter Hotel is also in relative close proximity to Cape Town International Airport, the Atlantic Beach Golf Estate, Virgin Active gym and tennis courts.
It’s about an hour's drive from Darling (home to the locally renowned “Evita se Perron”) and a number of excellent wine estates.
