Cape Town is a vibrant city, with many things to do in the city and surrounding areas.
Cape Point & Cape Of Good Hope
Cape Point Nature Reserve has two of the most noted points on the southern African continent. Cape Point is where many ships have foundered and sunk. There are two lighthouses at Cape Point, the reason being that the original lighthouse was covered by cloud over 900 hours a year. The 2nd light house is built lower down, 65m above sea level. Cape Of Good Hope is the most southwestern point on the African continent. Between Cape of Good Hope and Cape Point is Dias Beach. There are many hikes in the Cape Point Nature Reserve. This is not where the two oceans meet but rather where the two currents meet: the warm Mozambique and the cold Benguela from Antartica.
Close to Cape Town is the Constantia winelands. The most well known vineyard is Groot Constantia, where you can do Cellar Tours and wine tasting. Groot Constantia is one of the oldest vinyards, with a restored Monor House and Museum. Close by is Klein Constantia, noted for its Vin de Constance. Steenberg estate is another good wine estate with hotel and golf course.
