Any suggestions for New Years Eve??

by rombo83


Me and my husband (aged 26) arrive in Cape Town on the 31st December and was wondering if anybody had any good suggestions on the best places to see the new year in especially around the V&A area?

When in Cape Town- it is ESSENTIAL to observe the usual precautions as when travelling in any foreign country. The taxi service has improved vastly- because of the volume of tourists that visit the city.I lived in Cape Town most of my life,and visit there every year. We see improvement on every return trip.Be warned though- V & A is crazy at New Year. It can get rough & rowdy.
Being young- you may find it to be great fun.
The Sea Point promenade is very festive at New Year also. Fireworks & much merriment.
One word of advice- don't wear expensive, showy jewellery, and keep valuables in a safe place. Avoid dark streets & alleys. Stay with the crowd. And you willenjoy your stay for sure. I have a VT page on Cape Town with more information, that may give you some idea of the city. There are many good VT pages on Cape Town. Read some of them. All have good information.

Hi, oh yes!!!! New Years in the Mother City is definitely a festive experience. As Lynne mentioned the V & A gets quite packed and roudy, however, is definitely a great place to bring in the new year considering you are young and that is ofcourse if you enjoy the whole lively buzz. I am 22 and I use to love going to Camps Bay for New Year until last year, so one word of advise....STAY AWAY FROM CAMPS BAY on New Years Eve....It is no doubt the best place to go for cocktails or a stroll on the beach as well as pub hop any day other than New Years Eve. The places close by or before 12 due to the large amount of people who come from the rural areas in 60 seater buses and taxis.....It gets quite out of hand, not a very pleasant experience.

One of my favourites is packing a picnic basket with a blanket and long candles (to stick in the beach sand around the blanket) and heading to Clifton 4th beach to join thousands of tourist, celebs and locals bring in the new year.

Realy great :)

Travel Tips for Cape Town

If you'd like to explore the south-westernmost point of the african continent and spend a very special day full of great activities, well then will be a trip to Cape Point an unforgettable experience for you.

What to bring with?

by Jenniflower

Luggage with wheels is always a good idea, wherever you are travelling. Some ideas:

Light coloured clothing that doesnt absorb the sun as much as dark clothing.

Long-sleeved shirts and trousers will help protect you against the sun and possible insect bites.

A cap/hat that covers your head and neck.


Comfortable sandals and tackies/trainers/sneakers. Sun screen (at LEAST Factor 35 I would say), headache tablets, and usual little things like some plasters for blisters, cotton wool, germolene etc. Your camera, with charger, and an appropriate plug extension/adaptor. Have a map of the area handy, plus a local bird, flower and tree book. For this you also need a pair of good quality binoculars

This was once a glorious beach. Wide with crisp water and white sand. My mum lived here 30 years ago and tells a different tale to what it became. Drug lords and miscreants moved in and the area became unfavourable. Apparently there is some rejuvenation going on though, which is great news.

This beach is still a huge favourite for all the local surfers, and on the weekends it is packed solid with people from all over Cape Town.

City Bowl Area

by thinking about Long Street Happenings

Long Street
This street is the place to go for bar and club crawling, whether your tastes run from jazz and R&B, or to the latest DJ imported from Paris. Enjoy live jazz at 169 On Long every Friday, followed by an R&B dance party. On Saturday, 169 becomes Soul Seduction--vibey R&B Jazz Dance. Club Dune at 227 Long St. offers Latino, salsa and world music, while the Q-Bar on Thursday nights is famous for its "Rebirth of Skool," spinning classic dance tunes from the '80s and early '90s.

Ride 'Em Cowboy!

by DesertRat about The Santa Ana Spur

The Spur, as it's generally called, is part of the first South African restaurant chain. It's vaguely reminiscent of Denny's or The Embers in the US, though the decor inside is rather more sophisticated. We were quite surprised when we discovered a sort of Southwest theme with graphics of saguaro cacti and Navajo rug designs on stained glass chandeliers. Probably the best thing about it, though, is eating outside on the balcony with a superb view of the harbor and Table Mountain.

As for the food, they have great steaks, excellent seafood, and quite a few Mexican items, too, such as quesadillas and fajitas. I had a chicken fajita salad one evening, which was decent, though the guacamole wasn't the best I've ever had.
