Cape Town has recently been named one of the best cities in the world according to Telegraph travels and I can see why. Not because I reside in this fantastic city but because of it’s gorgeous sunsets overlooking the ocean in the background. It’s rare that Courtney and I have a chance to travel to this iconic area. It’s either really packed or there’s no parking space which can be quite frustrating. Nevertheless, the sun was shining bright on an autumn day and there was no better way to enjoy the day by watching the sun fade over the horizon.
Sea Point is one of those gem places, situated on a small stretch of land between the mountain and the sea. Sea Point got its name during the 1776 when, one of the commanders serving under Captain Cook, Sam Wallis, encamped his men in the area to avoid a smallpox epidemic in Cape Town at the time. It grew as a residential suburb in the early 1800s, and in 1839 was merged into a single municipality with neighbouring Green Point.
There’s just something spectacular about African’s sunsets while it hovers over the sea. I haven’t traveled much to other destinations so I only have this view to compare it with. Its a great place to take your loved one/s on a stroll along the promenade, enjoy an ice-cream or soda in your hand, dipping your feet in the ocean, or simply sitting on the lawn with a picnic basket. This view is more than picture-perfect!
Until our next adventure.
