Why go to Cape Town

Neatly framed by the Atlantic Ocean and Table Mountain, Cape Town is a vibrant, beautiful holiday destination. You don't have to walk far to stumble upon eclectic restaurants, fascinating museums, and Instagram-worthy beaches.

Enthusiastic surfers take to the waters in Cape Town year-round, and the waves are particularly impressive in winter. Muizenberg, only 30-minute away from the city centre, is one of the world's best learn-to-surf spots. You could even find a cheap surf-and-yoga holiday package where you can take surfing lessons in the morning and practise yoga poses in the evening.

Glen Beach and Dunes (near Noordhoek Beach) is renowned for its high, aggressive waves and world-class tubes, which are perfect for seasoned surfers looking for powerful, hollow waves. Boulders Beach, starred with a 3,000-strong African penguin colony, is another highlight - there's a boardwalk from the Visitor Centre where you can view the penguins without disturbing them.
