Southern Peninsula

Southern Peninsula

The blue waters of the Atlantic Ocean, beaches and mountains combine to make the South Peninsula one of the most beautiful places on earth. Beach resorts and picturesque fishing villages provide popular family entertainment. One side of the Peninsula faces the open, cold Atlantic Ocean but the eastern, False Bay side is warmed by the Agulhas Current.

The Table Mountain Range stretches down to Cape Point. The Cape Flats are part of the area. Many of the townships and communities were established during the Apartheid era and were thus not well planned. This area also includes parts of the Cape Peninsula Nature Reserve.
