Where to braai at Cape Point

When the weather’s good, we like to braai! What better way to do this than outdoors with a beautiful view, the smell of the ocean and the sound of the sea. 

Many people don’t know this, but you can braai at Cape Point – in the designated areas, of course. Buffels Bay and Bordjiesdrif are famous for their great braai spots and grassy picnic areas. The beach has a safe tidal pool that overlooks the False Bay area and there’s an abundance of rich flora this time of the year.

Buffels Bay
There are individual braai spots and beautiful white sands – so if you don’t mind the sand in your toes, this braai area is for you. Remember to bring your own grids and wood.

Bordjiesdrif has circular braai spots for those visiting in groups. There are grassy patches so you’ll have an ideal picnic setup. Remember to bring your own grids and wood.

The Cape of Good Hope (main gate)  is open from 07:00 to 17:00 from April to September and October to March it’s open 06:00 to 18:00.  Check Cape Point’s current rates. 

– Keep to the demarcated braai areas for your own safety and for the preservation of the park.
– Do not feed the baboons, those caught will be fined. Keep a safe distance between yourself and the baboons.
– Remember to keep the area clean and tidy at all times.
– No alcohol is allowed in the park.
