Table Mountain – take the Cable Car to the top and savour the dramatic views or, for the more energetic, hike up Table Mountain on one of the many designated routes.
Lion’s Head – a wonderful way to orientate yourself in the city is to hike to the top of Lion’s Head – it’s a moderate to strenuous 45 minute hike to the top and the views are certainly worth the effort.
Robben Island – visit the cell where Noble Prize Winner, Nelson Mandela spent 27 years in prison gaining remarkable insight into South Africa’s troubled past.
Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens – Kirstenbosch displays a wide variety of the unique plant life of the Cape known as fynbos. There are over 7,000 species in cultivation at Kirstenbosch, including many rare and threatened species. Kirstenbosch borders the Table Mountain National Park and merges seamlessly with the natural fynbos and forest of the mountain. Kirstenbosch lies in the heart of the Cape Floral Kingdom. In 2004 it was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

A secluded little town with tranquil seas, a place to reflect and be close to all amenities needed.
Lovely beach and restaurants near by, surrounded by scenic mountains.
The beauty of the trees as you’re driving towards your destination.
The braai facilities, the views, the sound of the ocean...there were many special moments. The location is very convenient and close to all shopping centers. The harbor and restaurant comes highly recommended.
