Top Places in Sea Point
Born and bred in Cape Town, Rob Peters is part-time runner and a full-time dad, who operates on far too little sleep, and way too much coffee.
A thrill-seeker at heart, and always on the lookout for the next challenge, Rob loves nothing more than throwing himself into the unknown and writing about the results, which are seldom very pretty. Now, as the Content Creator for Cape Town Tourism, he plans on cracking open the Mother City and seeing what makes her tick, by hitting every event, activity and hot-spot that is humanly possible and thus finally realising his destiny of becoming the world’s greatest social butterfly…
Sea Point has long been a #lovecapetown favourite. No matter the season, weather or occasion, this cosmopolitan suburb in the Mother City is sure to offer delights for all tastes. We share our Top Places in Sea Point:
Safe and diverse, Sea Point Promenade is a shared public space that offers rolling lawns and jungle gyms, look out benches and ice lollies. Families love this space because it is entertaining for kids, so moms and dads can relax while the little ones go mad and tire themselves out. Joggers and couples love the Promenade for its long walkway, its sea views and cool salty air.
At the end of the Promenade is Sea Point swimming pool - recently praised as one of the world’s top ten swimming pools by the UK’s The Guardian newspaper. And most mornings you will find some sort of exercise being undertaken near the pools, like yoga or Tai Chi. Speaking of healthy living, there is also an outdoor gym for teens and adults along Sea Point Promenade that’s really fun to use.
Before heading up to the Main Road, look out for shipwrecks from the Promenade. There are two to three wrecks that can still be spotted jutting out of the water.
Sea Point’s Main Road is a bustle of shops, businesses, tattoo parlours and eateries, including the famous train carriage restaurant, Atlantic Express, and the rotating restaurant at the Top of the Ritz. But for a truly interesting night out try Richards Supper Stage and Bistro for dinner and show.
