Agents Linda Kagan, Jenny Katz and Ian Konkol suggest the following:

  • Drive to the end of Ocean View Drive and watch the magnificent summer sunsets from Fresnaye Rock — a popular sunset vantage point.
  • Visit the open air gym on the Sea Point promenade and enjoy a gym session with a sea view where you will meet new people while training outdoors.
  • Visit De Waterkant village and take a walk through this beautiful suburb with its quaint 18th century cottages, cobbled streets and colourful shop fronts. (Part of Green Point, adjacent to the CBD on the south-eastern end of Somerset Road.)

Local agent Annette Hepburn recommends visiting Clifton 4th beach as it has family-friendly evenings of free music and picture-perfect picnicking. You can also book for a sunset cruise from the Waterfront to 4th Beach and back.
