Loved by locals and tourists alike for its scenery, Milnerton beach is famous for the lighthouse that guides boats into the picturesque Table Bay. Perfect for the snap-happy visitor, this beach boasts spectacular views of the mountain, dreamy sunsets and a palm fringed lagoon. Surfers and hand gliders should also ensure Milnerton is on their list as the waves found here inevitably draw large surfing parties, with summer surfers flocking down on a Wednesday morning to race into Big Bay. Some braver swimmers may even like to take a dip in the water, which is slightly cooler on this section of the coast, but perfect for a bracing ocean swim.

I don't have the words except that we love to walk and and enjoy the beauty mixed with historic buildings. Quote :There is so much to explore in terms of history inside the garden. Near the Adderley Street entrance a statue of Queen Victoria stands overlooking the Slave Lodge, while a statue of Jan Smuts looks on. Just over the road is the St George’s Cathedral, known as the “people’s church”—even during the apartheid era, all races were welcomed. It was also the starting point for the 30,000-strong demonstration led by Archbishop Desmond Tutu in 1989—and where Tutu coined the phrase ‘rainbow people’ to describe the diversity of South Africa’s population. The Garden is also home to the South African Museum and the Cape Town Holocaust Centre here, where you can view exhibits about the atrocities suffered by Jews during World War II. Beyond that, there are dozens of little historical treasures you’d easily miss if you weren’t looking for them. There is the Rutherford Fountain—which still stands on the original spot where it was erected in 1864—and the well pump embedded in an oak tree which dates back to 1842. There’s also the oldest cultivated tree in South Africa—a saffron pear, propped up on huge steel crutches.

From the V&A Waterfront I took a ferry to visit the famous island. Historical landmark known for housing political prisoners such as Nelson Mandela, now with a museum. It's like being in a world that's been left behind and yet still so much a part of our lives. Highly recommended.

A must do visit!! The southern tip of the African continent is the meeting place of two mighty and bountiful oceans, the Indian and the Atlantic. The Two Oceans Aquarium on the V&A Waterfront, Cape Town is ideally positioned to showcase the incredible diversity of marine life found in these two oceans.'
