Green Point tours & holiday packages
The city's greenest suburb
Studded with green spaces, Green Point is a pedestrian's dream, with many vibrant restaurants and nightclubs keeping things exciting after dark.
Wedged between the V&A Waterfront, Table Bay and the city bowl, Green Point may be classified as a suburb, but it offers so many things to do and places to eat and drink that you won't even feel like you have left a city centre. It's only 10 minutes from the Cape Town CBD, yet it feels like a different and vibrant world.
Green Point Urban Park has wide open lawns, ponds, a biodiversity garden, children's play areas and an outdoor gym. It's free to visit the garden and families, friends and active folk gather here over weekends and after work. Green Point also has a nine-hole golf course and its sea frontage leads seamlessly into the Sea Point promenade.
Green Point is a great place to go to if you're tired of the usual bars of the city centre. But I love Green Point Urban Park the most because it's so big and friendly and ideal for a breath of fresh air during lunch or after work.
More on Green Point holidays
If you yearn for more than just green spaces, Green Point has plenty of bars, lounges and clubs such as ZAR and Jade Champagne Bar and Lounge to keep you up all night dancing and listening to lounge music. Before hitting the bars, have dinner at Beluga, a popular hangout for models and local celebrities. Find international cuisine at Mano's, Mario's, Anatoli or Wang Thai. In the morning, walk down Somerset Road to find coffee shops and cafes such as Giovanni's and Vida e Cafe where you can sit on the sidewalk and observe the morning commute.
Green Point is completely integrated within Cape Town's new and innovative rapid transport system, the MyCiti Bus, which connects the suburb to Camps Bay and Clifton, Hout Bay, Llandudno, the city centre or Table Mountain.
