Tourists from around the world flock to South Africa each year, looking for a fun, relaxing holiday in the sun. Many of these choose to stay in Cape Town, where a multitude of attractions await, and many exciting activities are available. If you’re looking for a luxury holiday in a beautiful part of South Africa, head to Cape Town, and we guarantee you’ll have an amazing time.
With so much to see and do, you might be looking for little guidance and want to know why people visit and fall in love with Cape Town, so here we list some of the most accepted reasons to choose this popular holiday setting.
It’s surrounded by natural beauty
Any trip to Cape Town is memorable due to the dramatic scenery that greets you as you explore the stunning coastal area close by. With its beautiful backdrop of Table Mountain, nestled neatly between the Indian and Atlantic Oceans, you’ll be hooked by the jaw-dropping views that seem to greet you at every turn. Take a walking trail to Robben Island, spend time at Table Bay, and don’t forget to visit the Cape of Good Hope with its dramatic cliff tops, lighthouses, and shipwrecks that all add to the sense of adventure. If you love taking photographs, adore white sand and deep blue seas, this really is the place to be.

The seaside sundowners are legendary
Spend a day on the beach and you’ll be looking for something to do as the sun slowly sinks from the sky, so why not indulge your inner pleasure, and enjoy one of the legendary sundowners the city is renowned for? A sundowner is a well-deserved drink at the end of the day, and there are many local hotspots where you can enjoy a cocktail or two, including seaside restaurants, beach bars and cocktail lounges that have amazing views, pulsating atmospheres, and a huge choice of specialist drinks to cater for everyone.
There’s a lively music scene
If you like music, you’ll love the selection on offer in Cape Town as the choice is so diverse. From 11th November onwards until the 1st April 2018, the Kirstenbosch summer concert is in full swing every single Sunday, and it’s easy to find in Cape Town’s historical botanical gardens. This is a very popular outdoor event containing some very familiar names from the music industry, with local acts also playing to add to the fun as part of the extensive line-up. Plus, there are plenty of other venues in Cape Town that offer music for all, so whether you are into jamming or jazz, you are sure to find something entertaining to watch and listen to, as part of your Cape Town holiday.
The Braai is brilliant!
Visits to Cape Town during the summer months are especially memorable and made all the more special if you get the chance to visit a braai to enjoy the sizzle, and the smoke of a local barbecue. You can, of course, buy all your own ingredients and cook the meat fresh outdoors, at one of the infamous BBQ spots in Cape Town that are popular with locals and tourists alike. Settings like Newlands Forest are ideal for portable braai stands, or set one up at Oudekraal cove, and enjoy amazing views of the sea whilst enjoying your beach-braai. Of course, if you can’t be bothered cooking (and why would you on holiday?) you can always visit The Backyard Grill Lounge in Cape Town, and get everything cooked for you whilst you relax and have your meal delivered to your table.
