From the vibrant waterfront the city radiates out past sweeping beaches, bustling markets and elegant Cape Dutch homesteads. To the north, Robben Island is a moving reminder of the country’s turbulent history, whilst to the south, dramatic coastal drives stretch out to the wild expanses of the Cape of Good Hope.
Visitors today can choose to stay at the upmarket V&A Waterfront, with its array of shops and restaurants or the historic City Bowl, which sits close to museums and the serene Company’s Garden.
For a more relaxing stay, enjoy one of the city’s beachside suburbs: Granger Bay boasts striking marina views whilst Sea Point and Bantry Bay are popular with locals strolling along its sweeping seafront promenade.
Trendy Camps Bay is just around the headland and offers a laidback surf scene with cafés, shops and bars opposite its glorious sandy beach.
Alternatively, venture just a few minutes from the city to the affluent suburban areas of either Constantia for its stunning rural setting or Newlands, proudly standing in the shadow of majestic Table Mountain.
Trailfinders is the UK and Ireland's No.1 to South Africa. Almost all of our travel consultants have travelled extensively here, often returning time and time again.
