It should come as no surprise that our top recommendations for where to go in Cape Town focus on the beaches, mountains and incredible natural beauty of the Cape Peninsula. Take a leisurely drive to Cape Point, stopping on the way to watch the amusing antics of the penguins at Boulders Beach, before returning along the Cape Town coast via the beaches of Camps Bay and Clifton. You could easily spend a day wining and dining in the bottle-green valleys of the Cape Winelands but equally as appealing is a picnic on the fynbos-fringed lawns at the extraordinary Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens. And of course no Cape Town holiday would be complete without a trip to the top of Table Mountain.
Below is a list of our must-visit places of interest in Cape Town, but spend any time in and around the city centre and you're sure to find a few more favourites of your own.
