About Sea Point

Sea Point is a great combination of residential and commercial properties. Homes and holiday accommodation range from holiday apartments and penthouses overlooking the sea to mansions, historical homes, and Sea Point hotels that are perfect for newlyweds and families.

Its main road slices through Sea Point and boasts loads of shops, eateries, cafés, clubs and fast-food takeaways.

Sea Point is flanked by Signal Hill and the Atlantic Ocean, and is only minutes away from the centre of Cape Town, the V & A Waterfront, and the CTICC. In fact, much of Sea Point climbs the gentle slope of Signal Hill, giving the homes and accommodation here a fantastic view over the city and the sea.


The Sea Point promenade is one of the area’s most popular draw cards – not only for tourists, but also for locals that enjoy breathing in the fresh sea spray and drinking in views of the ocean and mountains. The promenade stretches all the way along the beachfront of Sea Point; from Mouille Point to Bantry Bay. Along its length, there are awesome play parks for children, gym equipment, restaurants and coffee shops. Locals love to jog, walk or cycle along the promenade; and moms can bring their prams along too.

The Sea Point Pavilion is a swimming paradise. There is an Olympic-sized pool, two smaller pools, a kiddies’ pool (all filled by the fresh water of the sea), and diving boards. The pool complex is open every day from 07h00 to 19h00.

The trendy, fun beaches of Camps Bay and Clifton are a short drive from Sea Point, and are musts on balmy summer days in the Cape.

I love Sea Point! A walk on the prom is a must. And my favourite restaurant, La Boheme is on the main road. Definitely a wonderful place to visit in the Mother City.
