5. Nourish’d Café
A vegan’s dream. Their menu is plant-based and absolutely delicious, with treats like vegan snickers bars, millionaire squares and coffee made from Superfood maca. Plus their smoothie bowls are edible works of art. They have two locations, one in the stylish Kloof street and another in the hipster Observatory, both shrouded in plants and natural wood tones for a fresh bohemian look. A visit here is definitely worth snapping an Insta pic for.
4. Beta Beach
Bakoven hosts some of Cape Town’s best kept beach secrets and Beta Beach is no exception. Artfully hidden on the drive between Camps Bay and Llandudno, this small beach is perfectly sheltered from the notorious Cape Town summer winds, you’ll find beautiful rock pools, forests and stunning views of the Twelve Apostles mountain range.
3. Kalk Bay
A thrift shopping lover’s greatest discovery. This strip of town between Muizenberg and Fishhoek can sometimes be completely missed en route to Simon’s Town, but be sure to pull off and walk through stores selling old records, silverware, war memorabilia, art and even wedding dresses at amazing prices. Pause all the shopping for a quick cuppa at a cute café before having fish and chips at the Brass Bell or popping in at Cape To Cuba for some Latin music and food.
2. Noordhoek Community Market
After a stop in Kalk Bay, take a round trip to Noordhoek to discover the weekly pop-up market in the deep south; the Noordhoek Community Market. Here you can see why Cape Town has earned its foodie rep, with spitfire lamb, burgers, sushi and even some gourmet flavours from celeb chef, Peter Goffe Wood.
1. Cape Point
Yes, Table Mountain makes Cape Town famous and the views are breathtaking, but how about the rocky headlands of Cape Point in the Cape Agulhas? Take a tram to what literally feels like the edge of the earth, with sweeping views of rocky beaches, cliff edges, fynbos, green hills and miles and miles of blue ocean that go all manner of turquoise at the various depths of the water, this spot encapsulates everything of what makes Cape Town so epic and is a must-see on any itinerary.
