Be seen while enjoying Sea Point accommodation

The Promenade is the place to be seen and with plenty of Sea Point accommodation options, you are in for a happy holiday.

This vibrant suburb of Cape Town is on the edge of the city centre and flanked by the suburbs of Mouille Point, Green Point and Bantry Bay. However, don’t be fooled by its 24-hour cosmopolitan vibe: this is not just a happening place for the party crowd.

Your Sea Point accommodation can be ideal for a hip crowd, families with young children and also the retired set.

Hip crowd

Revel in the many shops, takeaways, restaurants, clubs and coffee bars in Main Road. Your Sea Point accommodation could either be a luxury villa set on the slopes of Signal Hill with jaw dropping views of the Atlantic Ocean, or upmarket beachfront apartments that is right across the road from the famous promenade.

Hipsters need to keep fit too and you can join the locals for walking, jogging, roller blading, skating and cycling along the promenade.

Families

Bring your kids for a family experience. Whether your Sea Point accommodation is a villa with a private pool or an apartment overlooking Signal Hill, you will find enough to do to keep your children entertained.

The promenade, which runs the length of Sea Point’s beachfront from Bantry Bay to Mouille Point, is a hub of activity. The paved paths make it pram-friendly and a number of children’s parks run alongside. The Sea Point Pool at the pavilion is also particularly popular during the hot summer months. It offers an Olympic sized swimming pool, two splash pools for kids and a fully equipped springboard diving pool.

The Blue Train Park in Mouille Point has been around for 55 years and this 3 500m² property with its miniature blue train is a firm Cape Town favourite. Its latest addition for under 12’s is the first outdoor ice rink in South Africa. This synthetic ice rink is not weather dependent and even when Cape Town is scorching under the summer sun, kids can skate to their hearts’ content.

Retirees

Sea Point accommodation also caters for retirees with easy access to apartment buildings and plenty of wheelchair friendly restaurants.

The young at heart can also enjoy Sea Point’s promenade for an early morning walk or jog. Make sure you stop off at the interesting and interactive art installations along the promenade, which bring creativity to this stretch along the Atlantic Ocean.

The current exhibitions include a herd of white horses; a Ray Ban installation which has become rather infamous because of its association with Nelson Mandela and its outlook towards Robben Island; and also a collection of quaint benches in the form of meaningful messages. The promenade is a hub of outdoor exercise forms such as yoga and Tai Chi and you can often join in free of charge.

Sea Point accommodation is your access ticket to the best Cape Town has on offer. With a short drive to the V&A Waterfront and within easy reach of the beaches of Clifton and Camps Bay, book your next upmarket vacation accommodation through Nox Rentals.
