The suburb of Sea Point lies just a few kilometres to the west of the main Central Business district of Cape Town, in South Africa. Your holidays in Sea Point will be spent in one of the most affluent districts of Cape Town; an area that is more high rise than other parts of the city. The self catering apartments in Sea Point are generally appointed to a very high standard and this should ensure that your holiday is spent in absolute comfort.
Your holidays in Sea Point can be as relaxed or action-packed as you want them to be. The area has a good selection of cafés, restaurants and bars along its stretch of promenade for you to enjoy. You are also able to partake in certain activities such as jogging, tennis, swimming and some other watersports. For more in the way of attractions and activities, what with central Cape Town being on your very own doorstep, you won’t have far to travel and there are excellent transport networks in operation. You may even choose to hire a car whilst here: to really get out and about in this famous corner of South Africa.
If you fancy a day out from the city, on your holidays in Sea point, have we got the perfect suggestion for you? How about a day whale watching? If this sounds good to you, your best bet is to travel one and a half hours’ out of Cape Town and head for Hermanus. This seaside town is actually reputed to be one of the best places in the world to spot whales, as these are the warm waters that are chosen for them to calf. It is possible to spot these fabulous mammals anytime after May, but August to November are said to be the best months with the most activity going on. Hermanus also offers opportunities for swimming on its great beaches and there are numerous good hiking trails throughout the area.
As your holidays in Sea Point will be spent in the Southern Hemisphere, bear in mind that the seasons are completely opposite to back home. So, our winter will be the Sea Point summer and will realise temperatures into the high-twenties degrees Celsius. May through to August is the Sea Point winter but it should still be relatively mild at this time of year for you: temperatures easily into the mid-teens degrees Celsius.
The best airport to book flights to, on your Sea Point holidays, is Cape Town International Airport (CPT). There are a number of airlines that offer regular flights to Cape Town and these include South African Airways, Virgin Atlantic and British Airways. You may tend to find that your choice of airports in the UK is somewhat restricted: this is because flights will tend to only depart from London Heathrow (LHR). However, connecting flights are available from many other UK airports to Heathrow.
