Enjoy Sunset Beach for a Stylish Seaside Holiday!

The name says it all, but there is so much more to this splendid seaside town along Cape Town’s coast that just beautiful sunsets and sandy beaches. Sunset Beach in Cape Town is almost hidden and can easily be mistaken for a luxurious private estate, with it’s cluster of modern homes facing the ocean and the attractive, peaceful surroundings.

Sunset Beach is in a unique position to offer guests a peaceful vacation that close to many attractions and only a walk from the stunning beach, offering unsurpassed views of Table Mountain. Even though the constant flutter of Cape Town’s dynamic city life is just a 15 minute drive away and the livelier beach front area of Blouberg a mere 5 minute drive out, Sunset Beach enjoys its own small beach, consisting of sun-kissed sea sand and blue ocean waves.
