Strand at a glance

Lying at the foot of the Hottentots Holland Mountains, between Macassar and Gordons Bay and just 40 minutes’ drive from Cape Town lies the bustling town of Strand.

Strand’s beginnings were as a fishing and holiday resort and things haven’t changed other than the development that has placed Strand at the heart of the beautiful Helderberg Basin with easy access to wine routes, Somerset West’s Mall and the coastal drive past Gordon’s Bay to Betty’s Bay providing perfect viewing points during whale watching season.

New Dubai-style apartment blocks have joined the ranks of 70s-style beachfront homes to give the Strand beachfront a modern facelift. The Strand, Strand’s beachfront, is 5 km of white sand that is a water sports magnet and among the safest swimming beaches in the country.
