Words: Carlinn Meyer

1. Maiden's Cove

Maiden's Cove boasts gorgeous unspoilt views of Camps Bay and the Twelve Apostles. Marvel at the colours of the Atlantic and the surfers catching the clear blue waves during the day. Bonus? When Cape Town unleashes the south-easter, this spot offers the best view of the cotton candy clouds pouring over the mountain at sunset.

2. Bakoven

The rocks at Bakoven are the perfect place to absorb a memorable sunset and see the last of the orange glow hit Lion's Head. It's also a good spot to take beachy photos away from the usually crowded Camps Bay beach. 

3. Coastal Road

The coastal road between Camps Bay and Llandudno boasts an often-overlooked but very pretty pebbled beach – the perfect place to park with your top off! 

4. Llandudno

Llandudno, arguably the most gorgeous beach in Cape Town, sports its own mini Lion's Head. Stop at the top to get a bird's eye view of the crashing waves or head down to the rocks below for a closer view. Either way you're guaranteed some drool-worthy snaps.

5. Chapman's Peak

Take it nice and slow through the legendary bends of this world-famous drive and factor in enough time for hundreds of selfies. It's impossible not to be tempted. Point your lens at Sentinel Mountain opposite the bay, where cliff faces fall dramatically into the sea. The likes will come thick and fast.
