Backing onto Signal Hill, and just a few kilometres from the city centre, Sea Point has a past that is as colourful as its present. Neighbouring areas like De Waterkant, Green point and even Mouille Point are easily accessible via the bus, or even on foot.
The Sea Point promenade, which stretches for several kilometres along the Atlantic Ocean, is perhaps Sea Point’s most famous landmark, along with its public swimming pool at the Bantry Bay end. The pool complex at the Pavilion has two children’s pools, a diving pool and an Olympic-sized pool. It is open every day from 9 am to 5 pm.
An early morning stroll on the promenade is recommended, even when it rains, is quite delightful. Punctuate your day with frequent stops at the many cool hangout spots along the way.
Main Road is thick with restaurants serving global cuisine – Greek, Italian, and all kinds of Asian – as well as bars, watering holes and shops. It’s a road filled with character and quirkiness.
