Cape Town is one of the world’s finest cities to explore – especially if you love the outdoors. With both mountains and ocean, there is ample opportunity for adventure. Whether you love hiking, kayaking or exploring green city spaces – Cape Town offers something for everyone.

In this post, we look at five top things to do in Cape Town:

Do a Beach Hop

Cape Town is known for its world-class beaches – so, if you visit the Mother City, you must experience them.

Some of the most popular beaches can be found on the Atlantic Seaboard. So, if you want to visit our best beaches, just do an Atlantic Seaboard sweep. Obviously, Clifton 1-4 and Camps Bay are unmissable many reasons – but other gems include Bakoven, Glen Beach, Llandudno, Oudekraal and Hout Bay.

Other beach gems spread around the city include Noodhoek, Muizenberg (a surfer’s haven), Bloubergstrand and of course, the iconic Boulders Beach, famous for its resident African penguin colony.

Kayak on the Ocean

One of the city’s most popular water-based activities is kayaking, offered near Sea Point.It is refreshing being out on the Atlantic waters with the city behind you and a world of possibility in front of you. Often when out kayaking, travellers are lucky enough to see pods of dolphins or even penguins, fish and seals swim by.

Hiking in the Mother City

If there is one thing the Mother City is famous for it is her breathtaking mountains. Due to this, there are countless hikes – most of which fall within the Table Mountain National Park – to enjoy.

Popular hikes include Lion’s Head, Platteklip Gorge (up Table Mountain), Kloof Corner, Pipe Track, Alphen Trail and many more.

Note: When hiking, please practice general safety: check the weather beforehand; hike in a group; and avoid hiking with valuables.

Cape Town is a city with a wonderful green heart. There are lush parks for dog walkers and families to enjoy; forested areas for picnics and hikes; and of course, the Table Mountain National Park too.
