Cape Town is located on the southwestern coast near the southern tip of the African continent. This mid-sized city is home to many gorgeous natural and manmade attractions sure to delight the traveler interested in exploring off the beaten path.
For centuries Cape Town has been a traditional stopping point for seaborne traffic passing between the Atlantic and Indian oceans. Travelers interested in the outdoors can scale the tall Table Mountain for a fantastic view of the city, or gaze out upon the ocean from the scenic Cape of Good Hope. The famous Clifton beach with its white sands and clear turquoise waters offers superior seaside lounging, while the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront presents the traveler with a surplus of retail establishments to peruse.
Hotels are scattered throughout Cape Town, spiraling out from the city center around Signal Hill and extending down past Clifton Beach to Camps Bay. All locations are near marine attractions and the park that surrounds the city.

Many people miss the ‘old city’ of Cape Town with the coloured little houses. Beautiful restaurants at Bloubergstrand, hop-on-hop-off a great adventure, it takes you everywhere. Avoid Cape Point, extremely expensive and packed with tourists (must have a good fitness level).
It's my home city and it has the best of everything: gorgeous beaches, beautiful mountains, stunning scenery and delicious food and drink. It's the perfect place to escape a northern hemisphere winter.
The western cape has so much to offer, there are the famous tourist attractions such as Table mountain and the cablecar and the penguins at Betty’s Bay ( better than Boulder beach ) but the real gems take a bit more looking for. Hire a car and drive the garden route but visit Swellendam and Oudsthorn and Prince Albert, here is South Africa and the home of hospitality. Go to Stellenbosch and visit Rust - en - Vrede for lunch, simple menu and just fantastic. Watch the local beautiful people mix with affluent tourists, great entertainment. Try Somerset West in the evening, Bluewaters has brilliant sushi for next to nothing, or just meander round a vineyard taking in the views and having a glass or two of fresh and young white wine. Cape Town is just a great place to start your adventure, the best time to go is Jan/Feb when the Xmas holidays are over. The hotels and apartments are readily available and moderately priced and the weather is at its best. Car hire is fairly cheap as is fuel, roads are good and pretty empty once out of Cape Town and driving is very enjoyable as it’s right hand drive. Flights are also cheap in winter with return trips from about £500. For £1500 you can have a wonderful 2 weeks in a stunning location with some of the worlds best food and drink and the friendliest people anywhere. Don’t put it off, just go.
Cape Town is indeed o è of the most beautiful cities in the world. Beaches, mountains, great night life, vibrant culture. It has all
