Top local secrets in Cape Town

Destination(s): Cape Town

Cape Town is growing in popularity as a tourist destination, a fact that becomes apparent when you visit popular tourist locations. However, avoiding the crowds while getting an insider’s view of Cape Town isn’t difficult. This top local secrets in Cape Town list gives you a starting point. On a beautiful day, you may find some of these places quite busy, but most likely you’ll be sharing the space with local Cape Tonians rather than tour busses of tourists. Just a note, while Table Mountain is obviously not a secret, there are plenty of hidden paths and nooks on the Mountain. Just avoid Platteklip Gorge and the Cableway, remember to take a map, ask locals, and check out some of the Peter Slingsby guides for some good trails. read more about Top local secrets in Cape Town

Llandudno Beach

  • Llandudno
  • Cape Town

A small, beautiful, boulder bordered beach along the Atlantic Seaboard, Llandudno beach is a local favorite among the surfers and nature lovers. Its secluded location tends to keep Cape Town's wind away and its lack of cafes and bars keeps the Camps Bay beach scene away. The boulders on the northern side of Llandudno beach offer a fun scenic walk. Llandudno is a great place to watch the sunset over the ocean with the mountain backdrop glowing red. read more about Llandudno Beach
