Although Cape Town is not the biggest South African city, it still has its fair share of secret spots that are really worth exploring! I’ve lived in this beautiful place for over eight years now and I’ve come to know pretty much every corner of the city and its surrounding areas, so I can tell you where to find some of its best-kept secrets, that’s for sure! I have a passion for the outdoors, so a whole load of my favorite hobbies and interests involve exploring the incredible countryside that surrounds my city. I do love exploring the many secret areas in my city too, there’s so many non-touristy things to do in Cape Town itself, so don’t worry, I’m going to be including these too. Whether you want to find that secret beach that feels like your own kind of paradise, stumble upon somewhere authentic to eat, or just want a few unusual ideas for what to do when you first arrive, my top ten hidden gems in Cape Town will cover it all.
