Cape Town

Cabrinha may sound like a Brazilian cocktail, but it offers top-quality lessons and equipment in one of the best kitesurfing spots in the world.

Librisa Spa
Librisa Spa eases away the stresses and strains of everyday life with beautifully decked out treatment rooms, while a children's spa menu is at-hand for stressed-out kids.
Royal Cape
The South Africa Open is often played out here, so you know you'll be in good company in the clubhouse after a round or two on the green.
Labia
Labia is home to South Africa's oldest-surviving cinema and comes complete with old world-style surroundings. Alcohol can still be bought to take in with you too, which is always nice.
Clovelly Country Club
Swimming and golf may be an unlikely combination, but it's all possible here; be sure to pack your trunks alongside your argyle sweater.
Glasshouse Rejuvenation
As Cape Town's only sophisticated men-only spa, Glasshouse Rejuvenation for Men is where the city's most discerning chaps come to groom and get themselves looking gorgeous.

Get in on the underwater action with Dive Action, a top dive company offering trips to some of the best locations in the Southern Peninsula. Whether you're new or experienced, they have something for everyone.
Milnerton Golf Club
Links courses are few and far between in Cape Town; in fact, there's only one and it's here in the fabulous form of Milnerton Golf Club.
Abseil Africa
If you're not quite comfortable with throwing yourself off a cliff attached to a bungee, then ease yourself in by abseiling down it at a slightly slower, more controlled pace.
Simon’s Town Boats
Dolphins, whales and even great white sharks can be spotted with Simon's Town Boat Company. Be sure to keep your flailing limbs inside the vehicle at all times.
Sleepy Hollow
Enjoy a spot of horseriding at the foot of Chapman's Peak with Sleepy Hollow. Headless horseman not included.
