Atlantic Seaboard

The Atlantic Seaboard is known as South Africa’s ‘Riviera’ for good reason. Extending from the Victoria & Albert Waterfront in Cape Town down to Hout Bay, this scenic stretch of coastline is nestled between the shimmering Atlantic Ocean and dramatic mountain peaks. The San people were the first inhabitants of the Atlantic Seaboard region, and they lived off the abundance of the sea and in caves. In 1783, the first settlement was established in Bantry Bay. Today, the Atlantic Seaboard is lined with fashionable, upmarket suburbs and pristine beaches, all offering stylish shops, trendy cafes, and fine restaurants.

  • Take the aerial cableway to the top of Table Mountain, arguably the most famous tourist attraction in the Atlantic Seaboard, for spectacular, breathtaking views of Cape Town and the coast.
  • See exotic and rare South African plant species and gorgeous blooming flowers at the 528-hectare Kirstenbosch National Botanical Gardens, considered one of the world’s best botanical gardens.
  • Spend a day relaxing and tanning on the white-sand beaches in the suburb of Clifton, which are more protected from wind than most other Cape Town beaches and has a fantastic sundowner scene with loads of dining spots and bars.

Regular busses run along the Atlantic Seaboard from Cape Town’s city centre down to Hout Bay, with stops at major destinations, including Clifton. Travellers can also take metered taxis and fixed-price minibus taxis to get to their Atlantic Seaboard destinations. However, hiring a car is the best bet for exploring the region and the coastal Victoria Road makes for a scenic drive. The Metrorail does not pass through the Atlantic Seaboard, but it goes down to the southern tip of the cape to Simon’s Town.
