It's densely populated and it's constantly buzzing, but the fact that Sea Point stretches along the Atlantic Ocean gives it its charm.
Sea Point is unlike the other suburbs surrounding the city centre in that its high rises stand one beside the other and are all fronted by a long and winding promenade. This is one of the most densely populated areas in the city, served by a myriad cafes, restaurants and bars that have been tucked underneath the apartment blocks, flowing out onto the street.
The promenade itself is a paved walkway for pedestrians, joggers and cyclists that runs all the way from Bantry Bay to Mouille Point – that's the whole of Sea Point's beachfront. However, you'll also find mini golf and a range of public parks and playgrounds for kids. The public swimming pools overlook the Atlantic and include an Olympic-sized pool and a diving pool filled with chlorinated seawater.
Sea Point is the best place locally to go for a jog or a walk along the beach. It's the easiest place for me to access the sea and I like how the tall buildings meet the ocean.
More on Sea Point holidays
Moving away from the ocean, there are many places to eat, drink and be merry. The Wooden Shoe is Cape Town's oldest steakhouse and the steaks are better than ever. Sushi and seafood restaurants line the promenade, but La Perla stands out with its plunge pool and afternoon drinks overlooking the ocean. While New York Bagels will hit the lunchtime spot, La Mouette is a must-visit restaurant for dinner and artistically presented fine dining is the order of the day.
A walk to the lighthouse is a great way to walk off your dinner, or go out and dance the night away at one of the local clubs. In the morning, take up the challenge to surf at one of Sea Point's breaks or simply sip your coffee while the morning joggers sweat it out.
