Summer is here and with it comes a wish-list of Cape Town luxury experiences that you simply have to have and have to do. Come on down, the water’s fine, the days are long and the weather is fabulous.
Nothing says summer like cocktails on the beachfront. Indulge with a tipple at any of Camps Bay’s waterfront places. There are always new ones to try out like Zenzero or Mezepoli as well as the old favourites Café caprice, The Bungalow and The Leopard bar.
A Love Water Love bikini and thong sandals from Bonafide in the city centre will get you beach ready in no time and remind you of your summer-vacay for years to come.
A Festive Sing-a-Long
Get into the spirit of things at the Kirstenbosch Carols by candlelight. It’s an unforgettable treat and for a good cause too.
Artisanal Ice cream
When the heat is on, ice is a staple of the cool kids in Cape Town and there’s no shortage of places to choose from. You’ll find wholesome homemade lollies at Las Paletas in Killarney Gardens and creamy goodness at Gelato Mania on the Waterfront, as well as Crumbs and Cream in sea point or Cookies and Cream in the CBD. Plenty of scrumptious ices to scoop on a hot Cape summer’s day.
