One of Cape Town’s most recognisable beaches is Muizenberg Beach. It is regarded as one of the best surfing locations, particularly for novices who may catch many accessible waves there. But owing to the warm water and excellent weather, you may also just spend a traditional beach day relaxing instead of surfing. For those with an interest in its history, keep your eyes peeled for debris from the First World War scattered across the shoreline. The surf club at Muizenberg holds regular competitions on Saturdays throughout summer.

Lion’s Head

Lion’s Head, a friendly peak that is a part of the Table Mountain National Park, will provide you a day’s worth of free activities. Thanks to a number of hiking paths suitable for both novice and expert hikers, you may explore Lion’s Head. You’ll then be welcomed with an incredible panoramic vista of Cape Town when you reach the summit. If you’re looking for a more ambitious hike, take on the challenge of getting to the top! One way up to Lion’s Head is by taking a cable car from Kloof Street Station. Another option is by climbing up South African stairs – but those are only accessible during low tide.

Victoria & Alfred Waterfront

One of South America’s most popular tourist destinations is the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront. It will take you many hours to fully explore everything it has to offer, but you are under no need to do so if you don’t want to. The area offers wonderful scenery, free activities including live music, and some of the most magnificent South African landmarks. Spend a few hours at the Fish Market for a plethora of fresh seafood, or go see one of two museums: Iziko South Africa Museum of Contemporary Art or Iziko Slave Lodge Museum. You can also walk around any one of Cape Town’s districts and marvel at how rich this city is with culture!
