Romantic Things to Do in Cape Town

When you consider the scenic natural beauty, the sun, surf, sea, the mountains, the old buildings, the glitzy eateries, the spectacular mansions and all the other diverse offerings the Mother City has to offer, it is no wonder that almost every South African love story ever told, was set in Cape Town.

If you’re in love in the Mother City, you’re also in luck, because there are so many romantic things to do in Cape Town against the most awe-inspiring backdrops where the sun drops behind the horizon, or on the tranquil open seas, to name a few.

Want to keep it low-key? Perhaps you still have to make it Facebook-offish, or maybe you want to keep the spectacular date for a birthday, special occasion or for the proposal. That’s fine! You will still find many romantic things to do in Cape Town.

You could still be romantic for taking your love horse-riding, to one of the amazing beaches to watch the sunset, hiking in the mountain, visiting the aquarium, a picnic on a secluded beach, a romantic walk in the Botanical Garden, or, if you wish to burn off some steam, consider a trail run or cycling along the promenade.
