The Atlantic Seaboard Region, Cape Town

The Atlantic Seaboard, also known as Cape Town’s ‘Riviera’, stretches from the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront on the north shore of Table Mountain all the way down the west side of the cape peninsula to Hout Bay.

Did you know? Once you've booked your hotel or Atlantic Seaboard accommodation, explore the destination pages below for info on attractions, activities and things to do when you visit this scenically beautiful area of Cape Town.

This incredibly beautiful stretch of coast is connected by the most picturesque, scenic drive along Victoria Road and properties on this stretch of South Africa’s Cote d’Azur fetch unprecedented prices, now that this truly beautiful part of the coast is so sought after.

The Atlantic Seaboard never fails to buoy one’s spirits, with the glistening Atlantic Ocean on one side and the magnificent slopes of Lion’s Head and the Twelve Apostles on the other; one is easily transported by the sheer splendour of the setting.

Memorable sunsets on this side of the peninsular have made sundowners in Cape Town something of a tradition and, although chilly, the sea offers a more than refreshing dip on a typical hot day.

Did you know? Take a drive along the Atlantic Seaboard out of town via Sea Point. To call this drive gorgeous is an understatement, and, if you time it properly, you can stop anywhere along the route, provided you’re on the Atlantic side, for sundowners. Whilst it would be optimal to continue into Hout Bay and then beyond to Cape Point, you’ll probably run out of time, trying to squash so much into one day.

The Atlantic Seaboard includes the residential suburbs of Mouille Point, Green Point, Sea Point, Fresnaye, Bantry Bay, Clifton, Camps Bay, Bakoven, Llandudno and Hout Bay - all of which offer villas, guest houses and self-catering units with easy access to some of the world’s finest beaches, including the ‘there to be seen’ sands of Clifton, the unspoilt boulders of Llandudno and the glorious stretches of sand of Camps Bay.
