Information for Travelers

Seductively nestled between the mountains and the sea, Cape Town proudly flaunts its natural beauty.

It is a port city on the southwest coast of South Africa on a peninsula dominated by stunning natural beauty.

Rising above the city, the iconic Table Mountain offers the perfect plateau for panoramic views that stretch out to the glittering Atlantic.

Botanical gardens beckon from its slopes and the city's long blonde beaches, backed by towering peaks, are some of the best in South Africa.

Travelers can enjoy a variety of outdoor activities, from hiking, biking, surfing and paragliding.

Nature lovers will also be able to enjoy wonderful whale watching tours and cage diving with great white sharks.

Best Beaches

About four miles from downtown, the beaches of Camps Bay and Clifton attract the buff, tan and beauty.

Some of the city's most expensive real estate overlooks four gleaming white-sand beaches flanked by smooth granite boulders and lapped by sparkling but clear blue seas.

First Beach is a favorite volleyball spot and offers decent surfing when conditions are right.

South of Clifton, trendy Camp's Bay boasts another stunning beach, backed by the magnificent Twelve Apostles and the distinctive peak of Lion's Head.

People-watching is an art along this beautiful palm-lined stretch, as well as in the chic cafes and boutiques that line Victoria Street.

Along the rugged coastline, scenic drives cut through mountains that plunge into the sea.

As the oldest European settlement in Africa, Cape Town has a rich and sometimes turbulent past.

The city's cable car offers a panoramic view of the bustling harbor and the ships sailing to Robben Island.

On Robben Island, history buffs can see where Nelson Mandela was incarcerated for 18 years.
