- Cape Town is a buoyant melting pot of colour, creativity and cuisine. With its flat, larger-than-life mountain harbouring white sandy beaches, bountiful vineyards and a bustling waterfront at its base, it’s not hard to see why the Mother City is ranked among the most beautiful cities in the world.
Although Table Mountain is Cape Town’s crowning glory containing over 9,000 species of fynbos, the city won’t be outdone and is home to the Company’s Gardens, Kirstenbosch Gardens and Green Point Park. Enjoy the scenic Chapman’s Peak Drive that hugs the Atlantic Coast, eventually reaching the fishing village of Hout Bay cradled by Mount Sentinel. Turquoise waves wash onto the palm-fringed beaches in Camps Bay, the city’s own “Little Miami” while granite boulders divide Clifton into four coves, drawing sun worshippers and beach bums.
The waters are chilly but the swells are strong, inviting surfers, kite surfers and body boarders. Simon’s Town’s Boulders Beach protects 3,000 penguins while a boat trip from the V&A Waterfront takes visitors to Robben Island where Nelson Mandela was imprisoned. Whether it’s the brightly coloured beach huts littering Muizenberg, the Victorian-style restorations of Green Point or the thrumming pubs and clubs of the CBD, Cape Town resonates with excitement and intrigue.
