Cape Town, South Africa has long been known as one of Africa’s most popular cities to visit, but what is it about Cape Town that draws us in? Set on a peninsula wedged between the Atlantic and Indian Oceans with the iconic Table Mountain as its backdrop, the city of Cape Town sits in one of the worlds most spectacular settings.
In Cape Town, things to do are endless. The city is bustling with markets, and the V&A Waterfront has attractions galore. Visitors have the luxury of taking a short drive out to some of the most gorgeous white sandy beaches, mere minutes from downtown. The city is also well recognized for its harbour, biodiversity, good weather year-round, and cultural as well as sporting opportunities. In fact, back in June 2010 the city played host to the World Cup soccer tournament!
The best time to visit Cape Town for a beach holiday is December through April, where you can really take advantage of South Africa’s world class coastlines and divine scenery. However, if you’re more of an active traveler with a thirst for adventure, Cape Town in April through June is the time to circle on your calendar! With the region’s impressive biodiversity, hiking during these months is a highly recommended activity with days of crisp and clear air.
If hiking and beaches don’t scratch your itch, you can also go whale watching in July through September as the whales migrate to the area, and the wild flowers bloom along the coastline as the weather warms up.
Cape Town will appeal to nearly anyone who’s in the mood for a great trip away. Whether it be a romantic honeymoon couple searching for exquisite accommodations and idyllic views, families with children who can share the white beaches with penguins, or of course the adventure seekers who will absolutely relish the chance to discover the secrets of Table Mountain (which just so happens to be one of the 7 Natural Wonders of the World), there is something for every traveler! No matter where you find yourself in Cape Town, things to do will find you.
