Cape Town is a surprisingly romantic city – and here are ten of the best things to do during Love Month for the ultimate date (night):
Enjoy a Romantic Beach Stroll
Cape Town offers an array of stunning, romantic beaches to explore.
Some of the best for a peaceful beach stroll include Bloubergstrand, Camps Bay, Clifton 1-4, Muizenberg and Kommetjie’s Long Beach.
Pack a picnic and watch a beautiful beach sunset.
Visit a Unique Winery with Cosy Caves
If you want to experience a romantic wine farm, few can rival Klein Roosboom Boutique Winery near Durbanville.
Not only do they have incredible, cosy ‘caves’ where you can enjoy snug wine tastings but they also have lovely nature walks, a deli and eatery on-site.
Fly in a Hot Air Balloon
What could be more incredibly romantic and thrilling than catching a hot air balloon ride with the one you love?
There are a few local providers who offer exciting trips but one of the most popular is Ballooning Cape Town.
Dinner and a movie at The Labia Theatre
Catch a film at the oldest independent art-repertory cinema in SA: The Labia Theatre. Films are affordable; plus, you can enjoy a bite to eat or drink before your classic movie experience.
Embark on Sunset Coastal Drives
Cape Town’s coastline evokes the quintessential feeling of carefree love and, with both Chapman’s Peak (near Hout Bay) and Clarence Drive (near Gordon’s Bay), we are blessed with two beautiful options for a spectacular sunset coastal drive.
Savour a Wine Farm Picnic
During spring and summertime, our Cape Winelands estates offer delightful picnics ideal for couples to savour in the lead-up to date night.
Some of the best for a romantic picnic include Laborie Estate, Spier, Boschendal and Warwick Wine Estate.
Soak up the Stars at The Grand Daddy Boutique Hotel
Another great film experience is watching a movie at The Pink Flamingo Rooftop Cinema while staying at the Grand Daddy Boutique Hotel.
Soak up the vintage airstream trailer movie setting as you and your lover, friends, family or colleagues catch a film among the stars.
Dine at Longtable Restaurant at Haskell
Haskell Vineyards’ Longtable Restaurant is another ideal date night experience.
Dine at this special Stellenbosch eatery and enjoy wholesome food, a relaxing setting and a creative wine list with your love. Bookings are essential.
Sunset Hike up Lion’s Head
