The resort enjoys a steady flow of tourism all-year-round but especially in the winter months when temperatures are at their hottest and are significantly higher than anything we experience here in the UK. Temperatures can reach up to the mid-30s during the winter months which is ideal for lounging around on the beach or by the pool. For the rest of the year, temperatures still tend to hover in the low-30s.
There is an abundance of amazing things to do in Cape Point and one of those, of course, is to visit its wonderful beach areas. The beach is where it is all happening with sunbathers, volleyball players, picnics and people strolling along in the mornings and evenings. Unfortunately though, there are erratic currents in the waters surrounding this resort so it isn’t usually suitable for swimming. Other great things to do in Cape Point include visiting a natural ‘Crocodile Pool’ where you will be able to see some crocs from a safe distance and horseback riding which mainly takes place along the beach.
Cape Point offers a variety of accommodation options to suit any traveller’s budget and preferences. There are many tourist-class hotels along the beach which provide spectacular views over the ocean. Budget accommodation is available in the form of smaller hotels and guest houses. Luxury apartments are also an option as part of the Cape Residence. In terms of dining out, there are restaurants dotted all over Cape Point but some of the best are definitely located along the seafront.
