Cape Town Travel Diary

Cape Town has it all: from the best foods to the best wines and all the way down to the best beaches with waves, wind and sun soaked views of table mountain. I only spend a week here but already feel right at home. The conditions for water sports (beware! the water is quite cold) like surfing and kite boarding are perfect and the nature reserves are perfect for hiking and mountain biking. After a day in the outdoors, what could be better than having a meal that most food junkies would be jealous of, paired with a wine straight out a sommelier’s dreams. Don’t take my word for it, start planing your trip and feel free to ask me any questions that you might have.

Cape Town has so many things to offer. To make planing your trip easier, I will share a list of my favourite things to do, places to visit, and foods to try with you.

Top 5 must-see:
Table Mountain
Water Front
Botanical Gardens
Boulders Beach
Cape of Good Hope

Top 3 Beaches:
Boulders Beach – all I will say is PENGUINS
Camps Bay Beach – best view, popular for both locals and tourists, restaurants/ bars
Long Beach – for a romantic walk

Top 3 things to do:
Rent a car – best way to really experience what cape town has to offer (driving on the left).
Wine tasting – visit the wineries in Stellenbosch and Paarl (more info here).
Order Steak – good quality and cheap, only city where you get both.

Top 5 restaurants:
The Butcher Shop and Grill – try the springbok steak
Open Door – Everything on the menu looks and tastes beautiful
V&A Food Market – a lot of food choice, love the wraps and the juice market stall
Beluga – has the best sushi
The Lighthouse Cafe – cute place, perfect for lunch right after your boulders beach visit
