Sea Point, Cape Town, is home to one of our most conveniently placed resorts in the country – Riviera Suites. As the saying goes: ‘location is everything’, and in this context you will be superbly placed to access almost everything the colourful Cape has to offer.
Not only is Riviera Suites in prime position, but the views from each apartment are sublime – offering mountain vistas from behind, and uninterrupted sea views over the Atlantic from the front.
Sea Point Boulevard is well-known as ‘Millionaire’s Mile’ by Capetonians, and from here you will have access to some of Cape Town’s most glorious landmarks, such as Table Mountain, Lion’s Head, world-class Blue Flag beaches and many a chic restaurant or bar.
Sea Point Boulevard stretches for kilometres along the water’s edge – the perfect place for a sunset amble with a loved one, a morning jog, bike ride or spot to sit and contemplate life! If you are brave enough, take to the waters with a calming stand-up paddle board session or kayak.
Here are our top 5 recommended activities to do in and around Sea Point:
- New York Bagels:
This is a one-stop-shop for those that are barmy about bagels, to eat in or take away. They also double up as an excellent bakery and delicatessen. Try the sourdough baguettes or the croissants, or browse their selection of delicious cold meats, cheeses and dips.
- The Main Ingredient
With Cape Town being the foodie city it is, take a gander around this store that stays up-to-date with ever changing trends in cookery. Here you can find exciting and unusual ingredients from all over the world such as spices, preserves, and sauces, as well as luxury items like pates, truffles and confits. Keep your Saturdays free for their free wine tasting events, from 10:00-13:00.
- Sea Point Swimming Pool
This swimming pool is a popular summer haunt amongst Capetonians and it’s pretty nice to look at and has been used as a movie set a few times. It’s also frequented by Cape Town’s exercise fanatics, who like to wake themselves up with a few laps in the cool waters before work.
- Clifton and Camps Bay Beach
Take a drive just a few minutes out of Sea Point over to the pristine, white sand beaches of Clifton and Camps Bay Beach and spend the day soaking up the sun on some of Cape Town’s best known beaches – you may even spot a celebrity!
- Signal Hill and Lion’s Head
Take a short drive up to Signal Hill for awesome views over Cape Town. At Signal Hill you can park your car and admire the view from where you stand, or you can feel the burn by climbing the path up to the summit of Lion’s Head for the ultimate 360 degree view of this stunning city. This is a great activity if you are on a tighter budget!
