Cape Town is a city of tremendous natural and even man made beauty here are just 5 views that must be seen in Cape Town.

Table Mountain

By far the ultimate view point is Table Mountain. Rising up from the heart of the city this majestic flat-topped mountain beckons visitors to the top to experience the very best view of the Mother City possible. For those with some energy there are ample paths that can be climbed to the top but for most the route to the top is the Cable Car that in its own offers a superb view. Sunrises and Sunsets are amazing from the top of Table Mountain but at any time the weather is clear the view is spectacular.

Lions Head

A little step down and a stone’s throw away from Table Mountain is Lions Head. This hugely popular attraction requires a little effort to see the view offered. A climb to the top of Lions Head, using a series of paths, ladders and chains is an adventure and the view from the top is one that in its own way surpasses the view from the grand lady that is Table Mountain.

Blouberg Sunsets

For sunsets over the sea the west coast town of Blouberg and the surrounds offers the most spectacular sunsets in the world. The epitome of romance the setting sun on one of the beaches or from one of the restaurants that overlooks the sea is something no photo can describe. A picnic at Small Bay, a glass of wine at Blue Peter or just a stroll along the beach front allows nature to show off and show one of the most beautiful views in the world.

Du Toitskloof

The mountains surrounding Cape Town are often considered very friendly mountains and they provide some of the most scenic drives in the world with some of the most jaw dropping views imaginable. Not far outside Cape Town on the R101 between Paarl and Worcester is Du Toitskooof Pass, a narrow winding road that takes you through spectacular scenery with ample opportunities to pull over and soak in a view. Although you must watch out for baboons and other wildlife, you will feel far away from the City in less than an hour.
