Atlantic Seaboard

About the area

The Atlantic Seaboard, also known as Cape Town’s “Riviera”, stretches from the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront, on the north shore of Table Mountain, all the way down the west side of the Cape Peninsula to Hout Bay. The area is sandwiched between the glistening Atlantic Ocean and the slopes of Lions Head and the Twelve Apostles and features both stunning sunrises and sunsets. While the water can be a little chilly, beaches like Clifton and Camps Bay are popular for beach-bumming and swimming. Above all else, however, this area is bursting with great cuisine, friendly faces, fun activities, and natural wonder.
