Not only is the city gifted with phenomenal views, it’s also home to a myriad activities that will keep even the most energetic travellers on their toes.
Take a jog along scenic Sea Point Promenade, drive along winding coastal roads down to Cape Point where the Indian Ocean and Atlantic meet, then climb Lion’s Head during a full moon for unforgettable twilit views of the city. Get back to nature at the lush Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens, head to the V&A Waterfront for some high-end shopping and exceptional cuisine, then take a cable-car trip up the mountain to enjoy panoramic views of the city.
Wine lovers can take a tour through the stunning Constantia, Franschhoek and Stellenbosch winelands where they can sample a selection of exceptional wines. Sun seekers will enjoy plenty of summer sunshine while lounging on the Blue Flag beaches of Camp’s Bay and Llandudno. Visitors who’d like to get their feet wet can swim with penguins at Boulders Beach, or go surfing, diving, sailing, kayaking and shark cage diving in one of the city’s many other beaches on the east and west coast. Some eagle-eyed travellers may even spot Southern Right Whales, as they frolic in the waves. Adrenalin junkies will have absolutely no shortage of high-octane activities to choose from!
Night owls are also spoiled for choice when it comes to heading out for an evening on the town. Cape Town boasts a vast array of buzzing clubs, trendy restaurants and hot spots in the city bowl, particularly on popular Long Street.
For a touch of culture, visit the colourful Bo-Kaap, then make the must-see boat trip to Robben Island where South African history was made.
