As all kitesurfers know, the powerful downwinder from Dolphin Beach Hotel to Bloubergstrand in Cape Town is legendary. During the summer South Easter, when the wind is at its best, our landmark beachfront hotel is the best spot to stay if you’re looking for the ultimate kiteboarding getaway.
As you drive towards the West Coast from the city centre, you’ll see hundreds of colourful kites flying through the sky – it is a truly magnificent sight. And with Cape Town’s iconic Table Mountain forming a picture-perfect backdrop, it is any photographer or avid Instagrammer’s dream!
Tourists and locals alike enjoy the eclectic vibe of the Blouberg beachfront during summer, and no location offers a better view of the action than the perfectly situated Dolphin Beach Hotel. On any given day, you will be kiting alongside an array of kiteboarding enthusiasts, from pro kiters throwing down big megaloops right through to fortunate locals and foreign visitors all enjoying the benefits this unique stretch of coast offers.
The beach in front of our hotel is the location for the international Red Bull Megaloop Challenge – one of the highlights on the calendar, when visitors from around the world gather for a few weeks of fun under the African sun.
Dolphin Beach Hotel is the ideal place to stay during your vacation – we know you’ll love the relaxed vibe, golden sunsets and the million-dollar views! Our accommodation is comfortable and spacious with additional storage space for all your gear, and the lush green lawns in front of the hotel provide the perfect spot for you to set up all your kit. Then it is just a 50m walk directly over the dunes and onto the beach – it really couldn’t be easier. You won’t find another place as convenient as this in Cape Town – there is no road to cross or traffic to negotiate – when we say direct access, we mean it!
Your stay includes daily breakfast at Blowfish Restaurant and access to our freshwater pool. Our Beach Cabanas have two bedrooms, a lounge and fully equipped kitchen and can accommodate four adults and two children, making it perfect for travelling groups or families. Each Beach Cabana has its own garden patio and barbecue area so that you can make the most of the evenings, enjoying the unbeatable sunsets over the Atlantic after a day spent on the ocean.
At Dolphin Beach Hotel your happiness is our number one priority. Our team is 100 percent committed to ensuring that every aspect of your stay is special, which is why we offer a full range of carefully curated special occasion packages to help create shared memories that will last a lifetime.

Great Staff Attitude
“Absolutely no words to describe the cleanliness and great staff attitude. They’ve helped us a lot. I would recommend this hotel to anybody. We also missed our flight and returned to the same hotel. Not even 10 min, they’ve booked us in the same room so I would recommend this hotel 110% and it’s a lovely atmosphere.”
