Cape Town Doesn't Get Better Than This
People wax lyrical about Table Mountain (one of the New7Wonders of Nature), Kirstenbosch National Botanical Gardens and the V&A Waterfront Ė and with good reason. Theyíre brilliant places. But theyíre also very touristy places. Cape Townís South Peninsula is just as varied and just as beautiful (some would argue that itís more so) as the sights more traditionally associated with Cape tourism, but itís more peaceful.
Granted, some of the South Peninsulaís biggest treasures are squarely on the map; after all, Cape Point is on most tourist itineraries and few people who visit Cape Town donít pop in to the Republic of Hout Bay. Muizenberg also attracts its fair share of surfers and bathers looking for a Blue Flag beach. But itís the places like Scarborough with its eco focus, Simonís Town with its historical heritage and Silver Mine with its nature walks that many tourists miss out on.
Southern Crossroads rights this wrong by providing all the essential information that holiday makers need to find their way around one of the most beautiful areas in the world. If you need to find accommodation in Kommetjie, restaurants in Noordhoek, activities in Kalk Bay, or transport in Fish Hoek, then Southern Crossroads is the place to be.
