One of the most beautiful runs one can do. Traffic can be heavy, but if you leave early in the morning it's great. In the heat of summer, the road is under shade till around 08h00, with the sea breeze making it pleasant. Otherwise, it stays a great drive out. Always good on a motor bike too.

You cannot bear the sunset here. The view is absolutely breathtaking. It is a lovely place to have dinner, and cocktails and watch the sunset.

We go to TA a lot and have lunch in the area called leopard bar with outside seating, always great service and very nice menu, if you don't like that menu then ask for the main restaurant menu! View is out of this world!

The twelve apostles is the name given to a row of twelve mountains spread along a line, on the way from cape town to cape point. The apostles are just 20 minutes ride from the heart of the city.

My husband took me there for cocktails. Amazing view, food and drinks, and perfect if you want to get out of the city but still want the Cape Town -feel. Super friendly and wonderful staff and incredible views and tranquility. It has more than one restaurant/bar, so you're sure to be spoiled for choice. They have superb specials regularly (often...

The Twelve Apostles is one of the nicest settings in Cape Town. And there are options for eating here too. The Leopard Lounge the fine dining restaurant and the Cafe. The settings for each are all lovely and the service is good but the prices are outlandishly high for average tasting food. Would be nice to have more interesting menus... More
