Cape Town in South Africa offers a buoyant experience of its colorful landscape and culture. The mountains that harbor the white, sandy beaches, bustling waterfronts at the bay areas and beautiful vineyards are a few of the attractions you can find at this place. Known as the Mother City, it is not hard to see why it is ranked as one of the beautiful cities on a global scale. It is also known as a foodie destination. Hence, if you love to try new cuisine that has flavors incorporated from a colonial and French past that is what you will get in this city.
The mountains that surround Cape Town are flat and appear larger than life, a reason why they are called Table Mountains. It has rich flora and fauna to showcase with over 9000 fynbos species to be found here. That is not the only natural attraction here. Within the city limits you will find the Company’s Gardens, Green Point Park and Kirstenbosch Gardens, which are mini versions of Central Parks in the city.
If you drive out of the city limits the drive to Chapman’s Peak is a scenic experience. As it takes you along the Atlantic Coast, you will be enjoying stopping by Hout Bay, where a fishing village greets you by the Mount Sentinel. You can plan to stay at a resort by the Clifton and Camps Bay, where beaches are lined by palm trees and the turquoise waves splashing against the beach can be viewed forever. It is also called Little Miami with four coves lying between granite boulders where beach activities, eateries and shacks are present.
The beaches have distinct cultural vibes to offer. For instance, if you stop by Simons Town the Boulders Beach here has three thousand penguins. You can take a boat trip to the V&A waterfront where visitors can go to Robben Island and visit the site where Nelson Mandela had been imprisoned. With bright and colored beach huts that litter Muizenberg, there are Victorian style restorations to check out at Seapoint and Greenpoint. You can also stay at City Bowl and enjoy the nightlife here. To ensure that you have captured the region in its full flavor, do not forget the vineyards here.
