Minkys Cape Town holiday bucket list


We are off to Cape Town soon and we are the most excited! Because we are so excited, I have a put a list together of all the things we plan on doing while we are in the beautiful Mother City. Obviously this isn’t our first time visiting Cape Town so we have done a lot of the things on the list before. But the excitement is real and there is no place like Cape Town, so here is Minkys Cape Town Holiday Bucket List that we hope to tick everything off one item at a time.

You can definitely use this as a guide for when you are in Cape Town too …

  • Explore some vineyards in Franschhoek we haven’t explored before with the Franschhoek Wine Tram.
  • Take a leisurely walk from Camps Bay to Sea Point or vice versa and stop every so often to soak up the beautiful views.
  • Have coffee and a croissant at Maison J in Camps Bay. My goodness, their croissants look amazing!
  • Finally visit Bocca in Bree Street for a Neapolitan style pizza and some other classic Italian dishes.
  • Take a drive to Robertson and explore everything there is to explore in this little town known for its wine. We have two nights in Robertson and we are so excited!
  • Have an afternoon of cocktails at the new Gorgeous George Hotel.
  • Enjoy the sun, sea and sand at one of the very beautiful Bakoven beaches.
  • Indulge in an afternoon high tea at the Mount Nelson Hotel.
  • Watch the sunset with some delicious sun downers at the Twelve Apostles Hotel.

  1. This is my favourite time to be in Cape Town (and am lucky enough to live here). If you’re in the area, sundowners at Eden on Big Bay are a must as well! Enjoy your holiday <3
