Cape Town has to be the best destination for a holiday. The Cape offers everything from fantastic scenery to some of the top restaurants in the world. One can also find some of the finest beach accommodation in Cape Town.

The first image that most people have ofCape Town is the majestic, towering Table Mountain. It looms above the entire city and seems to affect every Capetonians day-to-day existence. On a warm summers day it is difficult to find a table at any restaurant that has views of the mountain.

On arrival in the Cape, the first thing that you will become accustomed to is the laid back way of life. No summers evening would be the same without a “sun downer” on the beaches of Clifton and Camps Bay.

The history of Cape Town is both colourful and turbulent. The first recorded European arrival was in 1652. The settlers set up a refreshment station for the Dutch East India Company ships on their way to the Dutch East Indies. The Cape was used to supply fresh meat, fresh vegetables and water.

Prior to this settlement, the area was populated by the Khoi San people, a nomadic and energetic race of hunter-gatherers who had lived in the Cape for thousands of years.

As the colony grew, so the Cape began to grow. Rebellious farmers packed up their wagons and set off into the interior.

Today Cape Town is a colourful mix of all sorts of people and the influence of all the cultures is evident.

Not only is it evident in the people but also in every aspect of life. Moslem, Jewish and Christian religions have all had an influence on the Cape.

Today Cape Town is a visitor’s paradise. One could spend many weeks here and still not get to visit everything. This is what makes Cape Town so exciting, as it means that you will want to return.

From the cable car that whisks you to the top of Table Mountain to the ferry that takes you out to one of Cape Town’s more famous landmarks, Robben Island, you will never be bored. Great walks are right on your doorstep. On your arrival at the CLIFTON ON SEA beach accommodation in Cape Town, we will give you a list of the easy-to-access walks. If you are staying within the beach house area, a stroll down a few stairs will get you onto the pristine beaches of Clifton.
