This area of the city of Cape Town that stretches from Green Point to Camps Bay nestled between Table Mountain, Lion’s Head and the sea is known as the Atlantic Seaboard. It includes some of the wealthiest suburbs in South Africa and the most expensive real estate in the country. These suburbs are amongst the most sought-after places to live in the world.
This stretch of coastline has the most sheltered beaches in Cape Town, and some of the most beautiful white, sandy beaches on the peninsular are found here. Although the water is too cold for more than a quick dip unless you are a polar bear, the beaches face the setting sun, making for longer days as well as spectacular sunsets. Cape Town’s beaches differ a lot in terms of wheelchair access, braai (barbecue) areas, dog walking, horses permitted, lifeguards on duty, fishing permitted, resorts, boat launches, blue flag status and shark spotters on duty. Please be aware of strong rip tides on our coasts. Most of the Cape Town beaches are manned by life guards, but the beaches that fall into the Table Mountain National Park do not. These are Kommetjie, Scarborough, Noordhoek, and Boulders. No alcohol is allowed on beaches or at Tidal Pools in Cape Town.
This region of Cape Town is perfectly situated in the middle of the Cape Town action: beautiful beaches nearby, tourist attractions all around, stunning sea views, wonderful pubs and restaurants abound and history surrounding you. Turn around and there are the magnificent mountain panoramas with the imposing Table Mountain, Lion's Head and Signal Hill watching silently over all below.
Stunning sunsets, beautiful people, modern luxury accommodation and superb shopping influenced by Cape Town’s 2014 election as the Design Capital of the World, will intoxicate you. There is so much to do - whatever rings your bell!
