Sea Point property guide

Sea Point at a glance

This vibrant suburb of Cape Town, just outside the city centre between Mouille Point, Green Point, and Bantry Bay, has become a bustling 24-hour cosmopolitan suburb that has drawn a number of executives to settle in its beachfront high-rises.

Neighbouring areas like De Waterkant, Green point and even Mouille Point are easily accessible via the bus, or even on foot.

The Sea Point promenade, which stretches for several kilometres along the Atlantic Ocean, is perhaps Sea Point’s most famous landmark, along with its public swimming pool at the Bantry Bay end.

Sea Point is divided by Main Road, with its many shops, takeaways, restaurants, clubs and coffee bars. Just about everything you need is found in this part of the city and it hums with activity. Up the slopes of Signal Hill, away from the Atlantic Ocean, lie large, private villas that fetch into the millions for their views and proximity to the centre of Cape Town.

In the other direction, lining the famous Sea Point promenade that draws locals and visitors for walking and jogging or just people-watching, are Sea Point’s luxury beachfront and self-catering apartments - popular with the young and trendy or those with small families.
