Milnerton was the first suburb to emerge over 100 years ago when it was decided to build a “Greater Cape Town”. A favoured weekend beach break for hard-working Cape Townians. Not much has changed over the decades. The white sandy bay, watched over by Table Mountain, is still the first choice for residence and holidaymakers alike. Sunny days in Milnerton (of which there are plenty) can be spent on the beach, enjoying the relaxing shore or surfing waves with an international reputation as some of the best in the world.

Suited to families and business people alike, property for sale in Milnerton strikes an appealing balance between convenience and lifestyle. Milnerton properties offer excellent value for money. Many homes provide ample space for kids to play. If you’re not after a family-sized home, you can always opt for a smaller townhouse. Working professionals tend to favour flats to rent in Milnerton due to the lock-up and go convenience along with easy access to nearby business centres and the CBD. No matter where you settle, property in Milnerton offers a reprieve from city living with magnificent views of, Table Mountain, Robben Island and Cape Town Centre.

“Established family suburb, 15 minutes from the Cape Town CBD.”

Milnerton Racecourse Nature Reserve

Milnerton Racecourse Nature Reserve

The nature reserve forms part of Table Bay Nature Reserve. The land is relatively untouched by development and has been cleared of invasive alien plants to allow for unobstructed views of horses running on the track next to Milnerton stables.

Access to the reserve is limited, but a footpath is open to the public for leisurely walks to enjoy the wetlands and try and spot the many migrating birds that join the Milnerton community during the year.



Enjoy a stroll or a relaxing afternoon on Milnerton Beach, known for its picture-perfect views of Cape Town, Table Mountain, Signal Hill and Robben Island.
