3 Popular Travel Spots in Cape Town You Don't Want to Miss!
A quick post showcasing three of my favourite local travel spots in and around Cape Town (including links to some photo sessions taken at each spot).
Living in the Mother City means we’re actually spoilt for choice, but here’s where I will be spending some time again this summer. Some locations are very well known, and some not as much. Either way, be sure to check them out!
Fun fact: Our first photoshoot for 2019 was actually at Llandudno beach, a fun sunset session with one of South Africa’s top alternative model agencies.
Llandudno beach is quieter than it’s famous neighbours (Camps Bay and Clifton beaches) and although parking can be challenging, once you’re there it’s an awesome spot.
2. V&A Waterfront (Helicopter Tours)
The V&A Waterfront is one fo the most frequented tourist attractions in Africa. Let that sink in. In AFRICA. It’s a big deal.
While the bustling waterfront itself is great, what’s even better is a helicopter flight from the waterfront!
I’m really playing with the idea of getting into a helicopter more often, and after my last flight towards the end of last year, I’m hooked!

3. Boulders Beach
Need I say more?
If you haven’t been to Boulder’s Beach yet - make the time, and check out some of the penguins! Always such a fun day out. There are local restaurants and cafés nearby, as well Simonstown proper, and Cape Town a little further down the road as you crest Smitswinkel Pass heading further South along the Cape peninsula.
Remember, there are two distinct (different) viewing spots at Boulders Beach with associated park entrance fees. One is a viewing deck and walkway, while the other means actual seaside beach-time with the penguins (sometimes tide dependent). These two spots are actually accompanied by two others, that are lesser known - although locals know them well - and these areas are open to the public and free - although with fewer penguins.
Remember, no drones, no feeding, no pestering the penguins, and no selfie sticks allowed (no seriously, not kidding).
