Cape Town

Cape Town, South Africa

As South Africa's most popular tourist destination, Cape Town has plenty to offers its visitors, with amazing views, great nightlife, superb cuisine and a good variety of all-round activities.

Cape Town

The beaches along Cape Town's west coastline face the freezing Atlantic waters which are generally choppy and can offer good surfing conditions. Camps Bay and Clifton are two popular areas and their beaches are busy in the summer season.

Calmer and slightly warmer waters can be found on the False Bay side of the peninsula which is generally more popular with families, in particular Gordon's Bay and Strand beaches.
