Lay of the Land

City Bowl: Cape Town’s commercial heart is home to trendy neighborhoods such as Gardens, De Waterkant, and Bo-Kaap, filled with stylish cafés and colorful cottages.

Clifton/Camps Bay: White-sand beaches border the city’s ritziest area, where cocktail bars spill out onto the shore.

Constantia: Known for its rolling vineyards, Constantia is just a 20-minute drive south from downtown.

V&A Waterfront: Fashion boutiques and live-music venues line this historic landmark, also a gateway to nearby Robben Island.

Woodstock: Design shops and galleries make up the artsy suburb of Woodstock, a hub for Cape Town’s creative set.

Getting Around

Taxis are easy to hail. Rent a car to reach the Winelands; many wineries are accessible off Route 62.
