Cape Town ©
Sweeping beaches, towering hilltops, and picturesque vineyards adorn the landscape of Cape Town, dominated by the imposing Table Mountain.
Visiting Cape of Good Hope and Clifton Beaches will get you outdoors. Spend a day outdoors on the 30th (Sat) with Chilled Squirrel. And it doesn't end there: tour the pleasant surroundings at Boulders Beach, head off the coast to Robben Island, take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Signal Hill, and go for a stroll along the water at Victoria & Alfred Waterfront.

To see more things to do, where to stay, traveler tips, and tourist information, refer to the Cape Town trip builder.
