Fish Hoek
The picturesque village of Fish Hoek boasts one of Cape Town's safest swimming beaches. With colourful, original Victorian bathing boxes providing a jaunty atmosphere, this beach also sports a children's playground, a refreshment kiosk, restaurant and secure parking. Enjoy snorkelling, Hobie-cat sailing and paddle-skiing. If you're lucky, you could see the local fishermen 'trekking' for yellowtail in their traditional wooden rowing boats.

Fish Hoek Beach

The Fish Hoek "Mardi Gras" happens annually in December and delights residents and visitors alike when beachfront stalls, live entertainment and a procession of floats create a festive spirit in celebration of the summer holidays.

For enthusiastic golfers the Clovelly Golf Course offers 18 holes on its charming, narrow course that meanders along a dune-lined valley and sea views.

Kalk Bay
Fast becoming one of the trendiest seaside villages in the Cape, Kalk Bay is a vibrant fishing community that reflects its cosmopolitan heritage through art, architecture and local cuisine. The Main Road and harbour are renowned for the variety of their restaurants.

Kalk Bay

St James
The seaside suburb of St James is a popular destination for its safe bathing beach, and a tidal pool. The beach is characterised by the colourful Victorian bathing boxes.

Muizenberg
Offering one of Cape Town's most beautiful beaches - with 36km of white sands, safe bathing and a beachfront Pavilion offering a swimming pool, waterslide and putt-putt course. Muizenberg was once considered a most fashionable resort town and this legacy lives on in its many gracious buildings.

Simonstown
This charming naval town is steeped in history and tradition. A number of excellent Museums illustrate Simon's Town naval and cultural heritage.

If you're after outdoor activities, there's plenty for the adventurous: snorkelling, scuba diving, deep sea angling, boat-based whale watching, golf and swimming. For more sedate entertainment, take a cruise around the naval dockyard aboard 'Spirit of Nuisance' or enjoy one of the many restaurants. And for shopaholics, there is a terrific variety of curio and speciality stores.

Seaforth & Boulders Beach
Visit one of only two breeding colonies of Jackass penguins on the African mainland, with access from either Seaforth or Boulders Beach. The larger part of the colony - at Foxy Beach - is reached by following a bridle path along the shoreline, and a boardwalk extends onto the beach to allow visitors an up-close encounter with this endangered bird species. Dido Valley Road's Mineral World is a favourite destination with fascinating tours through a gemstone tumbling factory, a scratch patch for the whole family to enjoy and an unusual jewellery and gift shop.

Noordhoek
A delightful country village situated at the southern end of Chapman's Peak Drive, Noordhoek bills itself as the last truly rural area left on the Cape Peninsula. It's a tranquil place with a colourful atmosphere - and it's just 25 minutes' drive from the city centre.

Scarborough
One of the Cape Peninsula's most predictable whale watching spots, Scarborough is a rustic village of residences and holiday homes at the mouth of the Schuster's River. Its position on the Atlantic shoreline and surrounding Cape fynbos makes it a unique conservation area.
