It’s a truth universally acknowledged that Cape Town is one of the most beautiful places on the planet. Virtually every inch of it is picture perfect, providing the perfect backdrop for your #OOTD pics. Whether you’re going for a raw urban street-style look or a softer vibe, you’ll find a spot that’s guaranteed to rack up the likes. But choosing an ideal place can be difficult – so we’ve made it easy for you with our picks of favourite spots in and around the CBD.
The bright colours of Bo-Kaap provide incredible backdrops to perfectly compliment or contrast your look. While you’re there, learn about its colourful history too.
Home to some of the best street art and interesting architecture in the city, you’ll definitely find the perfect wall to show off that fierce look.
Not only does Sea Point Promenade offer incredible views, it has loads of cool artwork, sculptures and jungle gyms to add that extra element of fun to your photograph.
Whether you want to show off that new bathing suit or just want a great beach backdrop, Llandudno has you covered. It’s a little isolated so you can take your pics without hundreds of eyes ogling you, and has a great combination of sea, boulders and mountain views for endless options (and outfits!).
Flowers, trees, benches, old buildings – The Company’s Garden has it all. No wonder it’s a favourite for wedding photographs and, if it’s good enough for a bride, it’s good enough for you.
Wander through the quaint alleys lined with antique stores or head on over to the pier for a more vacation-like pic.
