Cape Town, South Africa

Charlie Pea|April 22, 2015

I’ve been spending Easter weekend at my home-from-home in South Africa ever since I can remember. With cousins, uncles, aunts, family and friends all moving south for this holiday I couldn’t think of any other way to spend Easter.

Lazy days by the pool, beach walks, whale watching, mountain climbing, breath taking wine tours and of course epic Easter egg hunts are all essential activities that make this holiday so special. Nothing makes me happier than being by the sea, lying in the sun, eating unforgettable food and tanning until the clear blue skies turn into a night of stars.

If you have never visited Cape Town I cant emphasise more how beautiful this city is. After being back for two days I’m already planning if next year I can stay longer or somehow just stay forever. Still, back to Paris I must go, I have an MBA to complete, a job to get and a future to create before I can start dreaming of running away.

To sum up in a little list my favourite things to do in Cape Town:

  • Table Mountain – of course! This is the most important touristy thing that anyone should do. Especially if you are able to get the cable-car up for sunset and watch the city transform from day to night.
  • The Waterfront – if you’re ever stuck of what to do or where to do then head here. Always amazingly busy full of shops, cafes, restaurants and bars you will be completely entertained.
  • Camps Bay – Increasingly the most popular place to go in Cape Town. With a beautiful beach (but a sea that will make your body turn blue it is so cold), this is the perfect place for locals, tourists and everyone else in between to relax in the sun and enjoy the scenery. Not to mention the bars and restaurants that are definitely become ‘places to see or be seen’.
  • Boulders Beach – Not always everyone’s cup of tea but I have been going here since I was little so it will always be one of my favourite things to do in Cape Town. It is a beach full of penguins! Swim with them in the sea, sunbath with them on the sand they are everywhere. I love it!
