Idyllic scenery and upmarket accommodation in Strand
Strand started out as a fishing community and holiday town, and not much has changed since the town’s establishment. It remains a bustling holiday destination, nestled at the foot of the Hottentots Holland Mountains, between Macassar and Gordons Bay and just 40 minutes’ drive from Cape Town. It is known for its stunning, warm beaches and fantastic water sports facilities, and its quaint promenade surrounding the white sand of the beautiful beach. The accommodation in Strand is upmarket and modern, consisting of both ultra-contemporary Dubai-style apartment blocks and fashionably retro, 70s-style beachfront homes to cater for the needs and preferences of all holiday-makers.
Strand has become the heart of breath-taking Helderberg Basin, with easy access to wine routes, Somerset West’s Mall, as well as the coastal drive past Gordon’s Bay to Betty’s Bay which provides optimal viewing points during the wildly popular whale watching season. All of the accommodation in Strand provide stunning sea views, as well as easy access to the beach, for those who wish to take part in the exciting watersports, such as diving trips or water skiing. Fishing trips can also be arranged, as Strand has its roots in the fishing industry.
The bustling holiday accommodation in Strand is located close to a peaceful beach promenade, which offers access to local coffee shops, cafes and restaurants. For families in search of fun other than paddling in the waves on the beach, there is a large entertainment area with putt-putt, a water slide, a heated Olympic-size swimming pool and tidal pool. If you are looking for a more cultural escape, Strand is located a short drive away from Cape Town and all of its luxury, modern amenities and shopping centres, as well as being in close proximity to Stellenbosch and its famous wine route and wine farms.
