This vibrant suburb of Cape Town, just outside the city centre between Mouille Point, Green Point and Bantry Bay, has more than overcome its former reputation as a crime-ridden part of the mother city. Today Sea Point enjoys a bustling 24-hour cosmopolitan vibe that has drawn a number of city execs to settle in its beachfront high-rises.

Sea Point is divided by Main Road, with its many shops, takeaways, restaurants, clubs and coffee bars. Just about everything you need is found in this part of the city and it hums with activity. Up the slopes of Signal Hill, away from the Atlantic Ocean, lie large, private villas that fetch into the millions for their views and proximity to the centre of Cape Town.

Sea Point, a vibrant suburb of Cape Town
In the other direction, lining the famous Sea Point promenade that draws locals and visitors for walking and jogging or just people-watching, are Sea Point’s luxury beachfront and self-catering apartments - popular with the young and trendy or those with small families.

The promenade runs the length of Sea Point’s beachfront, from Bantry Bay to Mouille Point and is a hub of activity, particularly in the early morning or late afternoons to watch the sun set right next to the waters of the Atlantic Seaboard. A number of children’s parks run alongside the promenade and there is a chlorinated swimming pool at the pavilion.

Reaching the trendy and there-to-be-seen beaches of Clifton and Camps Bay is an easy walk or drive, and the city centre and Waterfront are minutes away.
