As the second most populated city in the whole of South Africa, only beaten by Johannesburg, Cape Town is an exciting and diverse destination for tourists from across the globe. Located on the shore of Table Bay, it enjoys some beautiful weather and offers a multitude of things to do for almost everyone, from culture and museums to fine food and drink.

Cape Town Holiday Itinerary

If you really want to experience Cape Town life though, it’s wise to head out into the surrounding villages and suburbs. Here, we take a look at two places your Cape Town holiday itinerary should include.

Camps Bay

Just behind Table Mountain, nestled between the Twelve Apostles and Lions Head, is Camps Bay with it’s sort after holiday villas. Its white sandy beaches that are lined with palm trees are one of its biggest attractions, and the International Blue Flag Status means that you can take a swim while knowing you’re as safe as possible. If you’re planning a visit, make sure that you book in some sporting activities. From tennis to lifeguarding, there’ll be something that appeals to you. You’ll find that the beaches rival anything that you’ll find elsewhere in the world.

If you enjoy good food, head to Café Caprice after a long day on the beach. It’s ultra sophisticated, and particular gems on the menu include the nachos and the burgers.


Cape Town Holiday Itinerary

Kommetjie is a village on the west coast of the Cape Peninsula that offers a unique blend of mountains, beaches, nature, and amazing surf. Though there’s a wide range of outdoor activities to take part in, you really can’t beat the mountain biking here. Hire a bike and head out to the Cape Point Route. It offers fabulous coastline views, and many travellers return year after year to complete the track.

To refuel afterwards, try Blue Water Café. The pizzas are a highlight, cooked on-site in their wood fired oven. There’s also an enclosed garden, a jungle gym, and a nearby animal farm, meaning there’s plenty to keep the kids entertained.

Offering a true taste of South Africa away from the hustle and bustle of inner Cape Town, these two destinations are popular for very good reason. Whether you choose to have a tranquil holiday based in the suburbs, or are just looking for ways to spend a few days while staying at a Cape Town base, both Camps Bay and Kommetjie are excellent choices. Accommodation tends to high quality and plentiful in both places, though make sure that you book well in advance. The best spots are in demand, so make a reservation as soon as you know what dates you will be travelling.
