If you’re not a fan of hiking, have already seen the colorful houses in Bo-Kaap or the penguins at Boulders Beach, the beach in Muizenberg is too crowded and the Cape Point too far away, then I have five more things to do in Cape Town. 🙂
1. Beach day in Camps Bay. The long beach, the clear water and the great view of the mountains makes Camps Bay a very nice beach. It is worthwhile to spend a day there, although the water is too cold for swimming. (Even for us North German Baltic Sea lovers) On the promenade are many cafes and restaurants as well as supermarkets and so we decided to enjoy a snack under palm trees at noon.
2. Kirstenbosch. If you love nature, you should definitely stop by. Large grasslands are perfect for picnics and barbecues. We looked around for a few hours and enjoyed the perfect weather.
3. The Longstreet. If you have time to get lost in the city, you are right here, because there is always something going on. Even the small streets besides the Longstreet are sometimes worth a detour. On hot days we can recommend an ice cream at Moro Gelato and Jonna also recommends the tattoo studio Wildfire. 😀 Especially in the evening it gets busy in the Longstreet, because beside restaurants you can find many bars here.
4. Shopping. Whoever packed the wrong stuff or who has been living in Namibia for seven months, like Jonna, should make a trip to the V&A Waterfront. The shopping center offers all the famous shops and a great foodcourt right at the harbor. In the Kloofstreet, on the other hand, you can grub in unknown shops.
5. Again Camps Bay! As you can see in the previous posts, the sunsets in South Africa are fantastic. That’s why we wanted to eat somewhere nice and watch the sunset. This is of course great along the promenade in Camps Bay.
