We’ve put together a list of some of our favourite things to do on a Sunday in and around Cape Town that will kickstart your internship week with positive energy!

Dive in!

Cape Town’s coastline is a smorgasbord of fun water activities.

1. There are great surfing beaches at all levels of expertise to choose from that are a short drive from Observatory.

Check out Wavescape for the surf report and head out to iconic beaches like Big Bay Muizenberg for longboarding sessions. Kiteboarding too!

2.  Snorkel & Dive with Seals in False Bay with the legendary Steve Benjamin.  You can rent GoPros from them for amazing photos of seal pups and underwater wildlife!

 3. Waves not your thing?  Splash in mellow rock pools that are slightly warmer than the usual cold temperatures.  Explore the coast on your way to Cape Point at Boulder’s Beach or Miller’s Point– Simon’s Town, Smitswinkel Bay, and do a shipwreck hike in the reserve!  For nearby tidal pools, have you checked out Maiden’s Cove near Camp’s Bay?  Here’s a whole list of ocean pools!  If you want to skip the salty sea and dive into a public swimming pool for under R20, go here.  There is even one in Observatory, on Willow Rd, open from 10-5pm with a grassy area to lay your towel.   change rooms, toilets, and entrance is R6.

 5. Go out at sea from the picturesque Kalk Bay harbour for a morning fishing trip with the legendary, George from Kalky’s, and come back in the afternoon for a fresh fried fish platter!
