At the tip of the African continent, Cape Town promises an endless diversity of spectacular activities. Lying in the shadow of the kingly Table Mountain and surrounded by far-reaching oceans, this is the city of art, culture, extravagance, and delicious food and wine. The city center itself provides easy walks to plenty of restaurants, coffee bars, markets, shopping, beautiful gardens, art galleries, and museums. Public transportation is convenient and a hop-on-hop-off sightseeing bus takes visitors on a tour around the areas offering magnificent historical, natural, and cultural attractions. Close to the city center lies the V&A Waterfront from where one can join in on cruises, a trip to the historic Robben Island, seal diving adventures, and sunset cruises. The Waterfront is ideal for shopping from high-end stores to local crafts and an endless choice of local and international cuisines. The clear turquoise waters of Camps Bay offer some of the best beaches in the world. Cape Town is well-known for magnificent hiking trails–hikers can climb to the top of Table Mountain and take the Table Mountain Aerial Cableway back down after enjoying the breathtaking views from the top. With many nature reserves in the area, there is no shortage of wildlife wonders and intriguing fauna and flora. It is no wonder there are numerous outdoor sporting events and festivals most weekends during the summer.
