Cape Town & The Cape Peninsula

2nd November 2018 - 3:28pm

Nestled between the iconic Table Mountain and the Atlantic Ocean, Cape Town is one of the most sought-after city breaks in the world.

Visitors can spend their time wandering around the V&A Waterfront, with its array of shops and restaurants. A boat trip to Robben Island is a must do, or take the cableway up Table Mountain.

To the south of the city, popular beaches holding Blue Flag Status include Clifton’s four beaches and Camp’s Bay.

Day trips down the Cape Peninsula offer stunning vistas. The Chapman’s Peak Drive winds between Hout Bay and Noordhoek. At the Hout Bay Harbour, animal lovers can take a boat ride out to Seal Island to watch these amusing creatures in their natural habitat. Next, head to Boulders Beach where the main attraction, a colony of Jackass Penguins is endlessly entertaining, exceedingly “whiffy” and just plain cute.

The Indian and Atlantic Ocean meet at the southwestern tip of Africa, in the Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve, home to a variety of wildlife species. Gazing out from the famous viewing point, you have the sense you have reached land’s end.
