Sea Point is on the Atlantic Coast between the Waterfront and the fashionable Clifton beaches. It is a cosmopolitan area loved for its extensive promenade for walking and jogging and its fabulous Olympic sized swimming pools on the beach front. You must visit the wine farms and restaurants of Franchoek, Stellenbosch, Paarl and Durbanville all within 30 mins to an hour and a quarter's drive away so we recommend hiring a car. At the end of our road there are 2 different Citibus routes with 2 more running from the beach front. There is a new airport bus from the airport into the City Centre where you can change onto a bus to our flat. It is less than a 30min drive from the airport to the flat. With the rand at 20 to the £ life is very cheap.
