Atlantic Seaboard

Published: December 4, 2008 11:51 am

The Atlantic Seaboard, also known as Cape Town’s Riviera, stretches from the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront on the North shore of Table Mountain, all the way down the West side of the Cape Peninsula to Hout Bay.

The Atlantic Seaboard includes the residential suburbs of Mouille Point, Green Point, Sea Point, Fresnaye, Bantry Bay, Clifton, Camps Bay, Bakoven, Llandudno and Hout Bay – all of which offer villas, guest houses and self-catering units with easy access to some of the world’s finest beaches, including Clifton, the hallowed sands of those “wanting to be seen”, the boulders of Llandudno and the glorious stretches of sand of Camps Bay.

The Atlantic Seaboard is a definite must-see with the glistening Atlantic Ocean on one side and the magnificent slopes of Lion’s Head and the Twelve Apostles on the other. On the Atlantic Seaboard, it’s easy to find yourself totally in awe of your surroundings.

Cape Town’s City Bowl

Published: December 4, 2008 11:49 am

Comprised of the city centre and surrounding areas lying North of Table Mountain and east of Signal Hill, The City Bowl is abuzz with activity. Locals and tourists alike will all vouch for the variety offered, whether you’re interested in trendy dining, live music or shopping. The City Bowl’s centre of action begins and ends with Loop and Long Streets, which run parallel through the city centre.

Long Street is world famous for being one of the most useful locations to be at as you can book a rental car, sample any one of the fine restaurants, catch up on a bit of culture, practice your favourite dance moves in a club or plan your entire itinerary through the multiple travel agencies and adventure centers along the way.  St George’s Mall is a pedestrian walk lined with shops and restaurants where you can shop and listen to local street musicians. Green Market Square is another popular outdoor market where vendors sell clothing, jewellery, African crafts, books and almost everything else. Heritage Square offers a more historic experience.

Breede River Valley

Published: December 4, 2008 11:47 am

The Breede River Valley stretches from Gouda in the West and McGregor in the South, to Montagu in the East and the Karoo in the North. You are offered a choice of ten exquisitely scenic entrances into this region, allowing you the choice of experiencing the world renowned hot mineral springs at Montagu or investigating The Old English Fort built in 1899. The Old English Fort is just one of the town’s twenty-two national monuments.

There are a few things you should know about this little secret of the Western Cape, known as Breede River Valley. Firstly, it’s the largest fruit and wine producing valley, and also brags the leading racehorse breeding area in South Africa. Aside from gorgeous scenic settings, you will have access to clear mountain streams and be surrounded by wildlife reserves which serve to remind you just how much in Africa you truly are.
