Metro-culture dating back to the early 1800’s where the Battle of Blaauwberg took place in Melkbosstrand in 1806. This was a battle in which the British were forcing the French to heel to their governance. It was of course a time when French Batavian troops resisted the British who were trying to establish a monarchy and develop the country.
Melkbosstrand is the connection point between Portugal and South Africa’s fibre optic cable network with the SAT-3/WASS network traversing the sea bed between the two continents.
