From the fashionable beaches of Cape Town’s ‘Riviera’ – the Atlantic Seaboard – including Camps Bay, Llandudno (definitely one of the most beautiful) and Noordhoek with its miles of sand and dunes, to the beaches of False Bay offering some real character beaches, such as St James or Boulders.
The wine estates in and around Cape Town all have a unique beauty of their own. Invariably wine estates lie tucked into picturesque valleys, surrounded by majestic mountains and vineyards heavy with grapes during the summer months.
The Cape West Coast, until recently largely unexplored and unexploited, is a region of unrivalled beauty and geographical diversity. This area of the world is renowned for its spectacular display of wild flowers during spring, its unspoilt beaches and beautiful mountain ranges and picturesque little towns like Darling, St Helena Bay and the fishing village of Paternoster.
And if that doesn’t tempt you then the Garden Route’s shadowy forests, peaceful lakes and wetlands or the Overberg’s numerous quaint villages and the dry Karoo with a sullen beauty all of her own – flat, sandy plains, shimmering heat and distant smoky-blue mountains – certainly will.
