Cape Town

Cape Town has some of the best beaches in the world, from family beaches on the False Bay coastline to white, sandy beaches on the Atlantic Seaboard offering beautiful views and spectacular sunsets. Lifeguards are on duty at all major beaches and surfing is popular.

Cape Town has a vibrant nightlife: excellent restaurants, often open till midnight, present a range of cuisine from Mediterranean to Asian, local Cape Malay and traditional African meals, while the bar and restaurant on top of Table Mountain has an aerial view of the city. The city centre offers a range of clubs including a gay scene.

Alternatively, head to Grand West Casino for a glitzy night. Cape Winelands offers breathtaking vistas and majestic mountain backdrops, rolling vineyards, quaint Cape Dutch homesteads and award-wining wine farms. Divided into different regions, each offering their own 'wine route', the most popular are Stellenbosch, Franschhoek, Wellington and Paarl, with wine tasting & cellar tours. Approximately an hour and a half away from Cape Town is the seaside town of Hermanus, offering the best land-based whale watching in the world.
