Cape Town is the largest and second-most populated city in South Africa. The city has miles of beautiful sandy beaches that line the shores of the great Southern Ocean. In the distance, vertical cliffs provide a beautiful background. You can find something for everyone in this delightful city on the coast.
Cape Town's beaches make for some of the most popular in the world and there are dozens to choose from, including Bikini Beach and False Bay. Some are sophisticated, others are family-friendly. Here, you can sail, swim, admire penguins, sunbathe, and just walk for miles. You can also participate in shark cage diving with professionals off of Dyer Island and some other locations.
Table Mountain is one place you shouldn't miss. The symbol of Cape Town, this mountain offers dozens of opportunities for pictures and hiking. Hike up or take the cable car. From there, you can explore other cliffs and hike those or do some rock climbing.
In the beautiful Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens, you can explore 528 hectares of beautiful gardens, located just at the foot of Table Mountain. The gardens include a Fragrance garden, medicinal garden and a water-wise garden, as well as a conservatory that displays some foliage that can't be grown outdoors, so visitors can still see and appreciate them.
While there, enjoy delightful food and wine from Cape Town. Wine lovers should also visit Cape Winelands, part of a wine tasting tour in Cape Town.
