There’s no question that we live in the coolest city on Earth. Well, this is according to Capetonians, but it seems a list by international magazine Time Out may be on our side.
In a ranking of the 30 coolest streets in the world, Cape Town comes in at a reasonable 22nd place, right behind Mellville’s famous 7th Street, which took the 12th spot. Now, you’d be forgiven for thinking that Cape Town’s bustling Long or Bree Street would have made the list, but you’d be dead wrong.
The sleepy seaside suburb of Kalk Bay was, in fact, the victor. The Main Road in Kalk Bay is described as “just magical” with gorgeous and historic sea-facing homes, tidal pools and restaurants “to keep you happy for days,” states Time Out.
We’re not even mad though. The competition was tough, with Melbourne’s funky Smith Street taking the top spot and Barcelona’s Passeig de Sant Joan coming in second.
Here’s to, hopefully, climbing the rankings and taking the top spot one day!
