Worth the visit to see all of Table Mountain behind the City of Cape Town. Sunset is a particular nice time of day to photograph across the bay.

The best the Cape has to offer. The view from Table Mountain is awesome. Lots of kite surfers who change the blue sky into a multi coloured rainbow. A definite place to visit is Blue Peter. And a long walk along the beach during sunset makes picture perfect memories!

Lovely beach with the iconic view of Cape Town. My daughter had the privilege of living here on her gap year and loved this beach, summer and winter.

Postcard perfect. Looks like the mountain has been painted onto the horizon. Better than Camps Bay A lovely uninterrupted view. Visit the Blue Peter for a great pizza and On The Rocks for a lovely lunch or dinner.Ons Huise is a lovely iconic restaurant but no fireplace so best enjoyed in summer.
