The enchanting coastal city which is set perfectly between the sea and the mountains in South Africa is famous for its harbour and natural beauty. The city is overlooked by the flat-topped Table Mountain which attracts a lot of tourists. The Table Mountain also offers the breathtaking panoramic views of the city.
The long beaches, scenic mountain terrains and the fast paced lifestyle of Cape Town attract lots of travellers, especially honeymooners every year.
The most photographed landmark in Cape Town is the 1,087 meter-high flat-topped Table Mountain. It is part of the Table Mountain National Park and protects a wide variety of plants and around 1,500 species of plants. The national park has also got a variety of animal population too. The mountain top covered in the clouds is a stunning visual to mesmerise you. There is a cableway that could be used to reach the summit of the Table Mountain.
The Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens in the eastern slopes of Table Mountain is absolutely breathtaking. It is a part of the Cape Floristic Region UNESCO World Heritage site. About 20 thousand plant species can be found in this botanical garden. There are many well-marked trails which are bordered by exotic trees that could be explored while you are here.
The stunning driving route Chapman's Peak Drive is about 25 km from the city. You would need to negotiate about 114 curves to reach the panoramic Chapman's Peak. The best time to enjoy the sites from the peak is during the sunset. From the peak, you could watch the dolphins frolicking in the Atlantic Ocean below.
If you love adventure activities then prepare yourself to see face to face with the most feared predators on the earth the great white sharks. Areas such as Simon's Town, Dyer Island, Mossel Bay, Seal Island, and Gansbaai offer the chance to see these magnificent creatures face to face under the ocean while you are safely tucked inside an iron cage. Whale, dolphin and seal watching tours are also available in these areas.
There are many beaches in Cape Town and are thronged by tourists all round the year. Camps Bay is the most famous of all the beaches here. We know that honeymooners will definitely love to have a little privacy so for those who want to enjoy the sand and the sea in a quiet atmosphere head to Queens Beach which is a lovely beach with rocky promenades.
There you can go for a little dip in the sea while exploring the exotic marine life. Glen Beach is another spot which gives you privacy. It is tucked away behind many sand dunes and granite boulders. A series of pretty tiny beaches called Beta Beach is also great for honeymooners.
