• There are two things we Capetonians will never get tired of seeing – our glorious Table Mountain and magnificent sunsets. No one can really blame us, you just have to go through our Instagram to see just how we are spoilt for choice.

    Fortunately, you can see the mountain from virtually everywhere in the city, but to catch a really good sunset, there are certain spots you have to go to.

    We all have our favourite sunset spots, many of them on various beaches and peaks around Cape Town. Here are five of our favourite places to watch the sunset. While these spots are absolutely great, we all know the best way to enjoy a sunset is with a nice chilled glass, filled with your drink of choice.

    Enjoying a good sundowner is the best way to end the day; all you need is a place with a great atmosphere, delicious drinks and an amazing view. Luckily there are many places that fit these requirements.

    CAFÉ CAPRICE, CAMPS BAY

    Café Caprice has established itself as one of the premier sundowner spots in Cape Town. Situated on the popular Camps Bay seaside strip. Enjoy one of their famous cocktails as you watch the sun sink into the sea.
