The Scenic Cape Peninsula

Exceptionally diverse. Charmingly coastal. Distinctly Cape Town. The Mother City’s famed Peninsula is as varied as it is unique. Set on a dramatic landmass jutting into the Atlantic, the lively urban metropolis is surrounded by breath-taking natural beauty on all sides: grand Table Mountain, the magnificent Cape Floral Kingdom, thriving vineyards, stretches of dazzling beaches, the deep blue Atlantic.

Key activities

Explore nature, adventure and thrills

Cape Peninsula activities like hiking, cycling and diving with marine life are well-known, but this incredibly diverse region hosts lesser-known adventures as well. Ride horses on Noordhoek beach, cruise along the coast in a vintage car, sip wine in Constantia, paddle out in a sea kayak or indulge in a sunset cruise on a private yacht. No two days exploring the Cape Peninsula are ever the same.

Why to go

Charming seaside suburbs, ocean adventures, authentic Cape experiences. The Cape Peninsula is one of the southernmost points on the African continent, bound by the city of Cape Town, Cape Point and False Bay. The peninsula is around 50km, from Mouille Point in the north to Cape Point in the south, where it juts out into the Atlantic Ocean, providing one of the most extraordinary coastal views.
