One of the best ways to enjoy the #CTSummer holidays is with a picnic in a gorgeous setting. Pack your own or purchase a picnic from some of the Cape Town Big 6 attractions.


Table Mountain Cableway

Picnic with a view, that’s what you will get when you make your way to the Table Mountain Cableway. Pack your own picnic basket and blanket and find a spot where you can enjoy your meal with a view. Alternatively, visit the Table Mountain Café tasty treats, great coffee, breakfast and light meals. Try out their new WiFi lounge, where you can upload your photos to Instagram while sipping on a hot coffee and tucking into a tasty slice of cake.

Robben Island

Robben Island does not have any restaurant facilities so it is best that you either bring your own picnic basket or do pop in at one of the many deli shops at the V & A Waterfront.

Cape Point

Cape Point is located in the Table Mountain National Park and offers a variety of picnic spots. Bring your own picnic basket and blanket and find great swimming spots, picnic sites and walks at the Bordjiesrif and Buffels Bay tidal pools.

Not in the mood for a picnic? Visit the Two Oceans Restaurant which is famous for its seafood cuisine as it is for a superb wooden deck that looks out onto one of the most stunning ocean views in South Africa.

Shaping up to be a sublime day at #CapePoint. And where better to take it all in from than the deck at #TwoOceans restaurant. #CapeTown
