Cape Town's City Centre

Cape Town’s City Centre always has a holiday atmosphere, with an eclectic mix of sights to see and fun things to do on and around majestic Table Mountain.

The most distinguishing characteristics of Cape Town have to be the amazing natural settings, it’s beautiful coastline, blue flag beaches and of course the unforgettable Table Mountain.

Cape Town has an eclectic mix of sights to see and fun things to do. The city is well known for its great food – where people can choose between an array of different styles of cuisine, from African eateries, seafood restaurants, classic bistros and everything in-between. Wine bars and traditional pubs are also popular hang-outs.

The city has a radical art scene, with numerous galleries that showcase the works of promising artists. It also has a vibrant and diverse music scene and busy nightlife. There are a number of inner-city markets to visit, from the Hope Street Market where you will find organic foods, antique furniture and artisan beer to Green Market Square where you will find African arts and crafts of every description.

Cape Town always has a holiday atmosphere and the beautiful blue flag beaches are safe as well as very clean. If you love the outdoors you will be spoiled for choice with hikes up Table Mountain and Lion’s Head, mountain bike trails and an ocean waiting to be surfed, snorkeled and swam in. Sunset is over the Atlantic Ocean, so you can join the locals on the beach in the late afternoon with your picnic basket.
