Many of Cape Town’s highlights are located within easy reach of Melkbosstrand, making it a convenient place to base yourself. Two sights that should top every visitor’s itinerary is the fascinating Big Bay and the ever-popular Doodles Beach. Also, be sure to check out Robben Island and Kite Beach.
Cape Town is known as home to the legendary Table Mountain. This iconic landmark is 3 miles (5 kilometers) from the heart of town.
If the weather is good, follow the lead of the locals who know the area best and appreciate the nearby parks and reserves. Reconnect with nature at one of the area’s beaches, for example Dolphin Beach.
Spend an afternoon watching the Ajax Cape Town take on the competition by booking tickets for a home game at the iconic Cape Town Stadium. Even on non game days, you can still head to the stadium to catch a backstage tour.
When you’re ready to relax after a day spent exploring the charms of Melkbosstrand, check in to one of the area’s numerous bed-and-breakfast, hotel and short-stay apartment options. Check out the rooms and rates at the Aquarius Luxury Suites, the Dolphin Beach Hotel, or the Allstar Villa.
