Cape Town and Its Hidden Gems
From a breathtaking tidal pool on a crisp summers morning to a cupcake that you won’t be able to Instagram quick enough before devouring it, Cape Town has some sensational hidden gems. Whether an art lover, foodie, photography nut or sports fanatic, Cape Town can satisfy everyone’s vacation musts with ease. Here are 4 of our top hidden gems (more to follow):
Saunders Rock Tidal Pool
A late afternoon dip, watching the sunset over the sea is a truly breath taking experience. Surrounded by large granite rocks, these create a natural wind barrier on those sizzling, windy days of summer. This is a popular swimming destination with the Sea Point locals and is a 10 minute walk from Pineapple House along the beautiful Sea Point promenade. We might just see you there!
This is a beautiful little beach which can only be truly described as a magical little find. It is surrounded by giant rocks which are rock climbing heaven for children and sundowner bliss for adults. Being so sheltered it is rare that there are large waves rolling in which makes it a safe beach for swimming (obviously extreme caution in the water is always advised). Beta Beach has a serenity about it that we absolutely love.
This isn’t exactly a specific spot but rather an evening event that allows you to adventure and sample some of Cape Town’s finest eateries, bars and galleries in the bustling city centre. It is a festive and fun atmosphere where you will get a good feel for the local vibe in Cape Town.
A Langa Township Tour and a visit to Project Playground
Project Playground is a non-profit after school care organisation which was founded in 2010 and engages with over 800 vulnerable children and youth in townships of Langa and Gugulethu in Cape Town. A township tour of Langa is a must for anyone wanting to discover the other side of life in Cape Town and get a broader understanding of the cultures that make up our Rainbow Nation. Visiting this incredible non-profit organisation will open your eyes and warm your heart.
