Top 10 Places to Propose

The story of how you proposed will be told to friends and strangers for the rest of your lives.  Choosing the right setting for your marriage proposal can make all the difference.   Put your own spin on any of our favourite spots to pop the question ….”Will you marry me?” 

1. At the top of a lighthouse

Take a trip to Kommetjie and propose at the top of Slangkoppunt Lighthouse .  Your proposal just has to include something along the lines of “You’re the light of my life “ .  Cheesy but it will be sure to make her laugh !

Lovers Tip: Spend a night at the romantic and rustic Slangkop Tented Camp or if you after something more luxurious go for Kommetjie Beach Cottage.

2. In the Air

This one seems to have a 100% YES record! The big question can be popped before the ride, during the heli flip or on landing. It seems the landing part is the preferred choice as it’s easier to go down on one knee when you hit solid ground. But she’ll be impressed, awed and stunned by the experience and the beauty of a helicopter flip over Cape Town.

Lovers Tip: View our Cape Point Helicopter Package:

3. On the beach

We love Cape Point and the thought of a white sandy beach all to yourself, a rock in your pocket and the whisper of the waves with you, make it a fabulous place to propose.   It’s windswept, wild and beautiful, with plenty of places for clifftop walks and super easy to combine celebratory bubbly afterwards at the magnificent Two Oceans Restaurant for celebration bubbly with ocean views

Lovers Tip: Get to Cape Point on a Vintage Cape Side Car

4. With African Penguins

Penguins are incurable romantics and have witnessed more than one smitten chap falling on one knee in front of his darling! The African penguins at Boulders  Beach in Simons Town are monogamous and mate for life so proposals at this place of lifelong commitment seem stamped with approval!

Lovers Tip: Have dinner and overnight at Boulders Beach Lodge and Restaurant:

5. On horse back

Do you have yourself a country girl? Maybe she is an uptown girl but riding horses has always been on her bucket list. Either way, a romantic beach horseback ride on Noordhoek Beach is a very creative proposal idea.

 Lovers Tip: Check out this overnight Coastal Country Chic package .

6. On the water

For the more adventurous couple a romantic Sea Kayak paddling to the Boulders Beach Penguin Colony in Simons Town could be an original way to proposal.  Plan ahead with your guide to arrange a secluded spot on the beach to pop the question!

Lovers Tip:   Spend a romantic night at the luxurious Simon’s Town Quayside Hotel

7 . Under the water!

This will surely take her breath away! Getting down on one knee in flippers may be interesting but it sure will be entertaining!  Be sure to ask the Scuba Diving instructor to record it so you can see for yourself.

Lovers Tip:  Book your underwater proposal with Pisces Divers in Simons Town.

8. On Chapman’s Peak
 

There are numerous view points and picnic spots along the 9km drive that is Chapman’s Peak.  It is spectacular at any time of day, however  sunset has a magical orange glow and just oozes romance! One good spot is to hang out at the forts on the Hout Bay end which are easily accessible and fairly private.

Lovers Tip: You can follow the proposal with a romantic dinner at Pure Restaurant and optional overnight at Hout Bay Manor.

9 . With a sunset picnic


Spend an idyllic afternoon in Noordhoek relaxing on Cape Point Vineyards rolling waterside lawns and enjoying the magnificent mountain and sea views!  At a small additional cost arrange a set up including umbrella, blanket and pillows  in a spot of your choice.

Lovers Tip: Spend a night at Noordhoek Stone Cottage for a Romantic Getaway

10. Under the stars

The best place for observing stars is far from the city lights, where there is less light pollution. The Cape Point Route offers great stargazing which is hugely romantic!  We suggest that you over night at one of the tented camps for your star gazing proposal.  

Lovers Tip: We recommend the Smitswinkel Tented Camp as they include a kitchenette and ensuite bathroom.

Towns of the Cape Peninsula: Kalk Bay

Kalk Bay is an small seaside village located on the False Bay Coast of the Cape Point Route. Despite being a suburb of greater Cape Town, Kalk Bay has not lost it’s charm and characteristics of a small time village, but at the same time has become known for its range of good eateries, coffee shops and unique and eclectic shops.

History

Kalk Bay’s history is very much tied to the sea – in fact the name Kalk derives from the lime kilns that early inhabitants used to roast mussel shells into lime for construction. Kalk Bay has for most of its history been a fishing village, with the sea providing an abundance of fish for local fisherman for hundreds of years. After the arrival of the main railway line from Cape Town, the population of Kalk Bay grew and as a result of this, amenities such as shops, schools and homes started to develop.

Restaurants and Bars

While still maintaining a link to its fishing past through one of the few working harbours on the False Bay coast, Kalk Bay has reinvented itself in the last few years – and has become known as a bit of a foodie destinations. We could probably do a whole blog post on the restaurants and bars in Kalk Bay, so for now let’s just say that almost every taste and tipple is catered for. From pizza to seafood and rustic coffee shops to artisanal bakeries. We recommend a few trips to Kalk Bay to enjoy all that is has to offer.

Accommodation

Kalk Bay boasts a wide range of accommodation options, from 6 bedroom villas to chic apartments and B&Bs.The benefit of Kalk Bay been a small village, is that all accommodation is within walking distance of the shops, restaurants and coffee shops. Kalk Bay also makes a good ‘home base’ for exploring the rest of the area, as its centrally located on the main road that traverses the Cape Peninsula. For more Kalk Bay Accommodation option click here.

Shops

Kalk Bay, in recent years, have developed somewhat of a bohemian feel to it – mainly due to the unique shopping experience this small village offers. Take a walk from one end of town to the other and you will see what we mean. Pop into Kalk Bay books to browse a fine collection of local and international best sellers. Take a journey back in time with a visit to Quagga Rare Books and Arts, that has some amazing examples of early South African and African history. Finally soak in some culture at the Kalk Bay modern, a contemporary art gallery.

New Year Resolutions for 2018

News Years Resolutions 2018

Health, Wealth & Happiness typically feature in everyone’s New Year’s Resolution list. So for this year, we’ve decided to take these time-honoured resolutions and give them a unique Cape Point Route twist.


Health

Getting fit and losing weight is ranked as the number 1 New Years Resolution! However, gym and diets are not the only way to stick to this promise. Get out there try a new sport. On the Cape Point Route there is no shortage of these fun activities to keep fit and healthy….

Surfing
Learn to surf with the some of the top instructors in the country. With mild temperatures and gentle waves Muizenberg makes the perfect location to try out some surfing. Use the New Year to try something new and get some fresh, sea air.

SUPing
Supping or Stand Up Paddling is fast becoming a popular outdoor activity on the Cape Point Route. Start your New Year off with a paddle from Simons Town, exploring the coast and the interesting beaches along the way.

Scuba Dive
How about scuba diving amongst kelp forests, wrecks and spot the odd seal or shark or two! There are PADI accredited operators along the False Bay Coast offering everything from training to equipment hire.

Wealth

Getting out of debt and saving money is a top priority, especially after the festive season! The Cape Point Route offers a number of experiences that offer top value for money. Here are our are a few of our favourites…

Swim with Penguins
Besides the modest entry fee, this activity will cost you nothing – yet you will get to experience something unique, that people would pay a fortune for. If penguins aren’t your thing, then there are plenty of other ‘penguin-free’ beaches along the Cape Point Route!

Walk and Swim at Silvermine Nature Reserve
Silvermine Nature Reserve offers a you a some good value for money outdoor activities. Hike up to Elephant’s Eye with stunning views over the Cape Flats or follow the trail up to Noordhoek peak with commanding views of Hout Bay. If that’s too strenuous, you can always take a gentle 30 min stroll around the reservoir.  Either way, we suggest you cool off afterwards with a quick dip in the reservoir.

Spend the night at a Tented Camp
Although a bit more pricey than the first two options, a night or two in one of the tented camps dotted along the Cape Point Route, will be an unforgettable experience and is very affordable.  Our favourite is the Slangkop Camp as you are only meters from the beach, but you can choose one more in the mountains, such as Orange Kloof.

Happiness

They say that the most important thing is to enjoy your life—to be happy—it’s all that matters. Cape Point Route is the ideal destination to spend quality time with the ones you love or even just yourself amongst beautiful surroundings. We recommend that you.

Getaway for the weekend
Back at the office but still want to feel like you are in holiday mode? Why not take the opportunity to get away for the weekend to one of the fantastic beach stays along the Cape Point Route. From luxurious villas to rustic tented camps, we have something chase away those New Year blues.

Wine & Dine on the beach
Did you miss all the cheer of the festive season and new year’s eve? Why not re-live some of that merriment by enjoying a delightful meal with the family at one of our recommended restaurants and bars?

Top 10 Beach Bars and Restaurants Along the Cape Peninsula

Summer is here!  In Cape Town we are spoiled for choice with restaurants where we can  relax with the lingering hours of summer sunlight.   Here we have compiled a subjective list of our Top 10 Beach Bars & Restaurants in “our hood” where we love to end our day with a colourful cool cocktail in hand followed by a meal and possibly a walk on the beach!

Our Top 10 Beach Bars and Restaurants
on the Cape Peninsula

1. Wharfside Grill – Hout Bay

Enjoy an authentic harbourside eating experience, at this Hout Bay institution – part of the world famous Mariner’s Wharf. Their nautical inspired decor will take you back to the time when mail ships and steamers plied the waters of the cape. After your meal, kick off your shoes and take a brisk stroll along Hout Bay beach. More Info


2. Dunes  Restaurant – Hout Bay

Located at the other end of Hout Bay Beach, Dunes is the perfect, quintessential beach restaurant. Dunes commands sweeping views of out over Hout Bay from Chapmans Peak to the harbour, and offers everything from breakfast to dinner. Sip on cocktails while enjoying the sun setting behind the Sentinel (the large peak overlooking Houtbay) , while the kids play in the on-site playground. More Info


3. Monkey Valley Resort – Noordhoek

You’d be mistaken for missing this gem of a restaurant – as its located deep in an indigenous Milkwood forest on the side of the mountain, overlooking Noordhoek beach. Thorfynns is the restaurant at Monkey Valley Resort and has amazing beach views and is sheltered from the wind that can pick up  over summer time. The beach is only a quick 5 min walk from the restaurant. More Info


4. Blue Water Cafe – Kommetjie

Although not technically on a beach, Blue Water Cafe at Imhoff Farm offers some amazing views of Long Beach, Chapmans Peak and Hout Bay in the distance. Blue Water Cafe is a must if you have kids, the food is varied enough for even the most fussiest of eaters and once they are done, the playground, including a slide from a tree, will keep them entertained, while mom and dad finish they flat whites or cocktails (depending on the time of day!) More Info


5. Black Marlin  – Simons Town

One of the best seafood restaurants on the Cape Peninsula, Black Marlin is located about halfway to the Cape Point Nature reserve entrance. It offers unrivaled sea views and because it’s away from the hustle and bustle of city, the only interruptions would be from the occasional seagull caw or breaching whale. You have not experienced seafood until you’ve dined here. More Info


6. Berthas – Simons Town

If any restaurant could challenge Wharfside Grill for the title of most authentic harbourside eating experience, Bertha’s in Simons Town maybe the one. Situated on a quay in Simon’s Town harbour, Bertha’s gives you a first-hand account of life inside a working harbour. From the comfort of your table you can see the yachts coming and going from the nearby marina or spot the odd submarine leaving the naval base on its next clandestine mission. More Info


7. Beachcomber Bistro  – Fish Hoek

Fish Hoek beach offers you a simple, yet enjoyable beach experience for the whole family. Likewise, the Beachcomber Bistro on Fish Hoek beach offers a no frills, simple dining experience. Ideal when you want to take a break from the sun and sea and enjoy a burger or pizza or traditional fish and chips, and if your kids don’t want to leave the sea just yet – the restaurant is close enough for you too keep an eye on them. More Info


8. Cape Point Vineyards

A sweeping vista from Kommetjie in the South to Noordhoek in the North greets you as you settle down on your picnic blanket. Be sure to check out the community market held every Thursday from 16h30 to 20h30, where you get to sample a wide variety of foods from local vendors. More Info


9. Casa Labia – St James

Did you know you could experience a Italian palazzo right here on the False Bay Coast? Casa Labia is located in Muizenberg and offers a dining experience and sea views that just can’t be matched. Built in 1929 to reflect 18th century Venetian decor, Casa Labia was once the home of Count and Countess Natale Labia. It has since been converted into a culture center open to the public. This is a must visit for locals and tourists alike. More Info


10. Live Bait – Muizenberg

Live Bait in Muizenberg offers you a trendy, ‘beach-house’ style setting, where you can enjoy panoramic views of the beach front while you tuck into your choice of seafood or sushi. Situated right on the beach, you can spot surfers enjoying some of the best waves at the world-famous surfers corner or kite surfers making using of the breezy South-Easter that blows over summer.
