Africa’s southernmost city is blessed with a breathtaking natural setting. The perfect beaches, ideal for surfing and kiting, the stunning Table Mountain and the rolling vineyards surround a charming town, itself full of interesting sights: the colorful Bo Kaap district, the Castle, and the Cathedral of St. George.
Bo-Kaap is a multicultural, colorful quarter hidden on a hill south-west of downtown Cape Town. Originally the home of the Muslim Cape Malays, it was later renovated and became a popular tourist spot. The lively suburb is characterized by brightly colored houses dating from the 17th and the 19th centuries, cobbled streets, ‘kramats’ (Muslim saints’ shrines), and numerous mosques. Here, the first Muslim Mosque in South Africa was built.
Surfing and kiting
Surfing is a huge thing in Cape Town. The best place for beginners is at Muizenberg, where you can also rent a board at one of the shops at the beach.
Those with more experience can head to the reef break at Kalk Bay, Outer Kom near Kommetjie, or Misty Cliffs near Scarborough. Milnerton is further up west and is best loved by kite surfers due to the strong winds blowing there.
Robben Island Museum
The island is a sinister reminder of the Apartheid era where a prison for the political prisoners was held. Among the prisoners was also Nelson Mandela, who was imprisoned there for 18 years. Today it symbolizes the triumph of freedom and human spirit over hardship and anguish. The island is located 12 km from Cape Town and is accessible from the V&A Waterfront in Cape Town from where tours depart several times a day.
