Why Every Couple Should Visit South Africa

There’s no doubt that Cape Town, South Africa is a watersport and action-adventure paradise. It can also be the ideal destination for couples holidays. Are you looking for the perfect place to take your other half for a romantic getaway (with a couple of banging waves, to boot)?

Cape Town and its surrounds offer some spectacular experiences for couples in particular. Here’s just a few of the many reasons to bring your significant other along for the surf holiday of a lifetime.

Sunsets, sunsets and more sunsets!

There is nothing quite like a Western Cape sunset! With endless coastlines and breathtaking topography, there are literally millions of places to kick back. Bring a bottle of wine along, and enjoy the view.

Whether you want a secluded beach picnic or want to finish a scenic hike with a relaxing reward, you will never run dry of locations and ideas.

The most popular romantic hotspots for couples holidays include Table Mountain, Lion’s Head or Clifton and Camps Bay. Although we highly recommend visiting all of those places, we can definitely point you in the direction of more private and picturesque locations. The sunsets in South Africa make it one of the best holiday destinations for couples. 

Superb dining makes the ultimate couples holiday. 

South Africa has an unbelievable range of restaurants, eateries, cafés and food markets – all at incredibly reasonable prices! Check out the popular Inside Guide’s list of the 20 best restaurants in Cape Town. 

Nowhere else in the world will you be assured of such exceptional quality for such low prices! Cape Town is a gastronomic delight for couples to enjoy on holiday. So why not take your loved one on a taste journey. Try everything from fresh seafood to a Cape Malay curry.

Wine time.

Most wine farms in the Western Cape offer tastings for a nominal rate or are completely free if you’re willing to splurge on a bottle. The endless vineyards set against mountainous backdrops make for perfect dates. You could also finish a tasting with a five-star culinary experience. Indulge at some of the exclusive restaurants in these winemaking retreats.   

Unlimited nature. 

From exploring hidden waterfalls to going on a safari drives, there will always be far too much to show your favourite human on couples holidays in South Africa. Not to mention, any sport you can do alone, you can do together too. Surfing, Stand-up paddle boarding, boat rides, horse riding along a beautiful beach, or simply cruising through the Overberg are all tried-and-tested winning date activities. Kirstenbosch botanical gardens is another gem of a place for both hiking or just chilling hard under the shade of an indigenous tree with a good bottle of bubbly.

We hope we’ve inspired you to treat your other half to an unforgettable escapade of endless adventure and love!
