Sweeping beaches, towering hilltops, and picturesque vineyards adorn the landscape of Cape Town, dominated by the imposing Table Mountain.
Get out of town with these interesting Cape Town side-trips: Lynx Wines (in Wemmershoek), Voelklip Beach (in Hermanus) and Harold Porter National Botanical Gardens (in Betty's Bay). There's much more to do: stroll through Cape of Good Hope, enjoy the sand and surf at Boulders Beach, take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Table Mountain National Park, and go for a stroll along the water at Victoria & Alfred Waterfront.

To see more things to do, traveler tips, maps, and other tourist information, you can read our Cape Town online road trip planner .

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airport is Cape Town International Airport. In May, plan for daily highs up to 69°F, and evening lows to 50°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 26th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
