No matter where you are in Cape Town you will most likely have an amazing view. Whether it's of Table Mountain (which is visible from almost anywhere in The Cape), the ocean views, the VA Waterfront, the Winelands, the many beautiful bays, the scenic routes...I can go on and on.
Oh the food. If you are a fan of seafood, trendy hip restaurants, cool coffee shops, then you have come to right place. Cape Town offers an amazing selection of diverse dining options. One thing to keep in mind is that you need a reservation for just about anywhere. We managed to squeeze into the Pot Luck Club one night and drooled our way through the entire meal. Extremely creative tasting menu paired with craft martinis. Everything was oh, so good.
I am pretty sure we left our hearts in Stellenbosch. We have been fortunate to visit wine valleys all over the world including Italy, Croatia, Napa, Sonoma, Mexico and now South Africa. Stellenbosch and Franschoeck quickly made there way to the top of our list. I have never seen landscape in a wine region as beautiful. The mountains surround you and the grape vines were lush and full. The wine is also delicious and for the most part, very reasonably priced. The Winelands were our favorite part of our trip thus far. We stayed at the Clouds Estate with one of the best views in all of Stellenbosch. I am still dreaming of enjoying a sundowner on the patio.
The Many Things On The Bucket List...
There is so much to do in Cape Town and where in the world can you go and see penguins on the beach, climb one of the seven wonders of the world (Table Mountain), swim with seals, swim with sharks, visit the southern point of Africa and so much more.
Hang with the rich and famous in Clifton Beach, enjoy a sundowner like a local in Camps Bay, take a scenic drive over to Hout Bay and Chapmans Point, spend the day heading down the coast visiting the little houses on Muizenburg Beach, visit the penguins at Boulders Beach and eat the local seafood in Kalks Bay.
There are so many areas to stay at in Cape Town that you really can enjoy a city stay, beach getaway, or a visit to wine country all within minutes of each other. We stayed in Camps Bay at The Marly Hotel, an uber chic boutique hotel right in the middle of town. We also stayed at the 12 Apostles, about 5-10 minutes outside of Camps Bay which offers 77 rooms but is completed secluded. In the City, we enjoyed the luxury high-rise stay at the Cape Royale Hotel, very luxurious boutique hotel with fabulous rooftop bar with one of the best views of the city. Just a quick 45 minutes from town, you can be in the winelands, which offers an array of farmhouses, boutique hotels, and estates to choose from.
