Big cities offers a large range of activities from art Galleries, museums, an incredible choice of restaurants to so many others options. But how many of them can offer vineyards, hiking and beautiful white-sand beaches on top of that? Not many!
Cape Town has it all. But for today let’s focus on its remarkable beaches. Embark on a perfect beach day in the Mother City, swim suit mandatory!
Trendy breakfast… Camps bay
Question of the day: smart or casual… Tricky one isn’t it! Let us answer for you: flip flops, swimsuit, sunglasses will suit you perfectly for today! In front of your hotel your private biker is waiting for you, embark on his side car for a ride around the best beaches in town.
First, stop to enjoy a breakfast in one of the trendy restaurant of Camps bay, the best known beach on the Cape Town coast. Both locals and visitors flock to this palm-lined strip to do a bit of people watching, play volleyball, walk their dogs or catch a tan while gazing up at the dramatic peaks of the 12 Apostles range, part of Table Mountain. Don’t be misunderstood; we are in Cape Town and not on Miami Beach!
Ride the wave… Muizenberg
Next stop: Muizenberg, internationally known for its colorful Victorian bath chalets, is a long family-friendly beach where almost every Cape Town surfer learned to catch their first wave. Don’t be shy… even if the water is a bit cold you don’t want to miss out on the surf class, after two hours point break, turtle roll, tube, frube and leash will be common words for you!
After effort comes comfort… Buffels bay
After this revitalizing sportive experience, we assume you must be very hungry! For special guests, we will drive you through the Cape Point National Park to an unexpected spot, Buffels Bay. In the heart of this emblematic park, the perfect mix of sunshine, sea and relaxation can be experienced on this beautiful beach. A table is dressed, ready for your lunch. You can smell the wood burning. Yes, a chef is preparing a typical South African barbecue, the Braai, for you. Enjoy tasty meat with a unique Braai sauce right on the beach! Sandy beach, tidal pools, grassy braai and picnic spots… Welcome to Buffels Bay.
Friendly encounter… Boulders beach
After a hearty meal, it’s time for digestion and Boulders beach is the perfect place for it, famous for its small and funny inhabitants and white-sand beach. If penguins are here, the water is obviously refreshing. Yet it will be a shame not to enjoy this incredible beach, her beauty is unique and the small companions walking around provide entertainment and fun.
Jump into your kayak for a lazy one hour tour. While paddling, you can admire the beautiful coast of Simon’s Town. If you are persistent enough while looking in the water, you might see seals and even dolphins. Do not get surprised if you run into ducks, the maritime life is very diverse on this side of the ocean!
