Western Cape DestinationsGreen Point, Atlantic Seaboard

The gay-friendly suburb of Green Point has fast become one of the trendiest residential areas in Cape Town, particularly since the development of the Cape Quarter - a shopping centre that regards itself as an experience and the essence of ‘Cape Town cool’ - found in the heart of Green Point.

Green Point lies between the V&A Waterfront and Signal Hill on the Main Road en route to Sea Point. Green Point exudes a village feel with narrow villa-lined streets, sidewalk cafes and stylish shops. Many of the homes are Victorian-style restorations with balconies and trellises as well as lovingly reconditioned original features of this period.

Green Point is a vibrant and lively part of Cape Town both night and day, particularly after dark when local pubs, clubs and cabaret restaurants serve as a popular hangout for locals and visitors. Green Point is close to the city centre, including Long Street, Company Gardens and a number of museums and galleries. It is also a perfect location from which to access the popular Cape Town beaches of Clifton and Camps Bay.

The Green Point Common serves also as the site for the Sunday morning market - one of the largest markets in the mother city with examples of traditional African art pieces, music and crafts. And Sea Point’s promenade makes for an interesting early morning amble or late evening walk to view the locals and the sun setting over the sea.
