Strand Town of Helderberg

Strand - Amazing flat beach. Well visited, but not crowded. Beautiful views and everything within walking distance. Conveniently situated for easy access to Gordon's Bay and surrounds. Very impressed with the cleanliness of both the beach and business area!

Muizenberg Suburb of South Peninsula

Vibrant Beach, Central - Muizenburg has a vibrant beach where there is always an activity happening in the sea. It is lovely, and has some lovely restaurants along the beach. Connected by train and by roads, very central to Cape Town and able to enjoy the Peninsula.

Misty Cliffs Suburb of South Peninsula

A secluded paradise - If a quiet secluded holiday in a amazing location sounds like your cup of tea, look no further! Misty cliffs is all that and more, beautiful scenery and a beach to yourself, close to shopping malls and a few excellent tucked away restaurants plus its virtually on Cape Point. What more could you want.

Bo Oakdale Suburb of Bellville

Calm - Bo Oakdale is clean and a nice little suburb. Besides the traffic noise, which you get in any city, I will recommend it. Close to the big hospitals and close to Cape Town harbour.

Sea Point Suburb of Atlantic Seaboard South

Good for budget - Sea Point is located in a place that lowered our budget on transportation to many of the places we loved to see, the beach, table mountain, V&A Waterfront etc. We actually strolled to many of those places.

Greenways Suburb of Strand

HOLIDAY STAY - Found the whole estate very secure, the grounds and surrounding area superb.

Val Lowe

Simons Town Town of South Peninsula

a lovely holiday destination... - We've been holidaying in Simons Town for 4 years in a row because of its ocean views, an easy drive to various destinations, its quietness and the fact that there are numerous guest houses as we mostly travel as a group. overall it is a great holiday destination...

Bothasig Suburb of Northern Suburbs

Bothasig - It unbelievably clean and tidy. It is close to all the various places that one would want to get to. It is not a noisy area either.

Herman weyers
South Africa
Simons Town Town of South Peninsula

Lovely but quiet - Simons Town is a lovely destination and has some very beautiful historic buildings. Also an easy drive into the centre of Cape Town (depending on traffic - about 1 hour) and easy to drive back at night as well. However in the evening the place becomes quiet - if you are looking for a bit more evening entertainment there is no much to do other than restaurants (fish and chips) and a tavern/pub (good place to meet local people). However the positives well outweigh the negatives.

Hout Bay Suburb of Atlantic Seaboard South

Serene - Hout Bay is a very beautiful and relaxing town. The wharf is a legend and we discovered the craft market at the harbour. A very vibey place to hang out on a Friday night. I enjoyed that immensely.The view of Hout Bay from Chapman's Peak on a beautiful summers day is too glorious to describe, you just have to go and experience it for yourselves.

Durbanville Town of Northern Suburbs

A true gem - Not knowing much about Durbanville, I was pleasantly surprised. The area is pretty, is close to everything, family orientated, and is only a 20-minute drive to Cape Town proper as well as the airport.

Jorge Marrero
South Africa
Strand Town of Helderberg

Clean beach - Superb town with a never ending beach which is kept clean. Yes, the wind does blow and can cause havoc with the sand but it is usually quickly re-distributed. Strand has some lovely holiday accommodation and would be suitable for all ages, nice restaurants, some shops and chemists, supermarkets, etc.

Beautiful city - It's a very beautiful and friendly city. I would definitely recommend for any one. Everything you may need is around you. Going to tourist destination is not a hustle. "My citi" bus tops it all off

Scarborough Suburb of South Peninsula

Scarborough - Awesome views, clean beach, next to Nature Reserve, so you have the best of both worlds.

Bloubergstrand Suburb of Atlantic Seaboard North

Bloubergstrand - The area has breath-taking views across the bay. The summer sunset also provides a much needed warming effect to the apartment such that the nights do not get too cold. There are plenty of shopping and eating outlets within close proximity. The beaches too are not as crowded as the ones below Lion's head... This makes the beaches ideal for families with small children. They can run around the beach without getting lost in the crowd. Parking is generally not an issue whether at the beach or shopping centres. The only major thing that takes getting used to is the strong wind and the attendant dusty conditions.

Bloubergrant Suburb of Atlantic Seaboard North

Windy but good - Lovely clean area. Whales have been spotted, albeit cold water! A good view of Robben Island too. There are lots of watering holes and good restaurants in Bloubergrant to choose from - and something for everyone. The beaches get pretty crowded sometimes, so parking could be a problem. Bloubergrant is known for the wind - so be warned. but excellent for kite surfing and fantastic to watch too.

Linda Naude
South Africa
Hout Bay Suburb of Atlantic Seaboard South

Hout Bay - Beautiful, quiet, relaxing, yet also vibey and interesting, not too far from other towns and places of interest and the the view of the bay from Chapmans peak is indescribable.

Deon Landsberg

Bloubergstrand Suburb of Atlantic Seaboard North

Bloubergstrand - Good view of the mountain and wonderful to see the kite surfers. Seems to be very peaceful and laid back.

Observatory Suburb of Southern Suburbs

Old part of Cape Town - Observatory is an old part of Cape Town and is a bit dodgy compared to other suburbs. I would not recommend Observatory as a tourist destination.

Rudolph de Kock
South Africa
Melkbosstrand Suburb of Atlantic Seaboard North

Ideal - As ex Capetonians we like to use our annual vacation to visit Cape Town, but also need it to be a holiday. Melkbosstrand is ideal as it is not too far from the city but it’s far enough to have a small town feel. It has the convenience of shopping centres nearby, great restaurants with spectacular views and beaches straight out of your dreams.

Ottery Suburb of Cape Town

Ottery History - Having lived in Cape Town for many years, I know the cultural diversity that makes up Ottery. Ottery is a multicultural area that comprises a range of homes from low budget to architectural masterpieces. Very poor and very wealthy people both occupy this area. The area is part of the 'Cape Flats' that was designated by the previous regime.
