Cape City Break

Feb 20, 2019

We all know that Cape Town has the mountain, and that’s why many visitors trek to the mother city each year. However, the city has so much more to offer, and with long weekend’s around the corner, it’s time to start planning what kind of holiday you and your family would like to take – and taking a city break in one of the most famous cities on earth is highly recommended.

Of course, Cape Town is a popular destination: arts, culture, nature and a relaxed atmosphere all converge at the tip of the continent to create the ideal place to take a break. There are dozens of activities in the city that are perfect for a family break.

“Our mother city has so many things to offer and it’s an exciting trip for anyone. Whether you’re going to go up the mountain by cable car or take in a concert at Kirstenbosch, you won’t be disappointed. Of course, if you want to relax poolside at one of Legacy’s Cape Town hotels and sip cocktails, that’s fine, too,” says Paddy Brearley, Managing Director at Legacy Hotels & Resorts.

One of the things that is worth taking in is a stay at The PortsWood Hotel, with views out to the ocean and the iconic Robben Island. The hotel restaurant, The Quarter Kitchen provides a delectable Cape Malay dining experience which cannot be missed.

Alternatively, make use of the variety of facilities at The Commodore Hotel, situated right on the doorstep of the popular V&A Waterfront. Take in the views of Table Mountain, enjoy some pampering in the hotel spa or laze about the pool.

And because you get to choose how to spend your break, Cape Town offers exceptional culinary and night life experiences along with day time explorations of the city itself. Hire a bike and cycle down the promenade, join a serene sunset yoga session on Clifton Beach, visit the many museums or, if you have a taste for adventure, there’s always zip lining over the fynbos forests.

“City breaks are a great way to enjoy time with the family whether you have just a weekend or an entire week to explore. You can never run out of things to do in Cape Town. The city is alive with fun and activities. There are markets to visit, hikes to take, art galleries to wander around – your choices are endless. You could either create a city break itinerary, detailing all the things you want to see or do, or you can simply wing it and go with whatever takes your fancy,” says Brearley
