Why go to Cape Town

Sandwiched between the Atlantic Ocean and Table Mountain, Cape Town is often described as one of the world’s most beautiful coastal cities – and rightly so. With miles of glorious beaches, world-class museums and buzzing bars and restaurants, South Africa’s Mother City has something for everyone.

A Cape Town holiday can be as relaxing or as action-packed as you like. There are dozens of beaches to pick between, from the breaks at Muizenberg’s Surfers Corner to the pristine Camps Bay, with its turquoise waves and talc-white sands overlooked by chic beach bars. Active types may instead fancy a hike up and abseil down the iconic Table Mountain, which is a highlight of any trip to the city.

As one of South Africa’s capital cities – there’s uniquely three in total – Cape Town’s cultural and historical offering is expectedly huge. There are dozens of museums, galleries and sights to explore, including Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art Africa, the largest museum of contemporary African art in the world, and the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Robben Island, where Nelson Mandela spent 18 of his 27 years in prison.
