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.
*ATOL (Air Travel Organiser's Licence) is a financial protection scheme for package holidays: It provides support to consumers in the event their holiday provider collapses. Booking with an ATOL holder ensures that you won't be left out of pocket and you won't be left stranded abroad. All package holidays compared using TravelSupermarket are protected by ATOL.
ABTA (Association of British Travel Agents) offers similar cover for packages booked with its members. However, while ATOL predominantly covers flight-based packages, ABTA covers non-flight based holidays (such as rail and cruise) and linked travel arrangements. If you are unsure whether or not your trip is covered by ABTA, check with your provider.
