Arguably the quintessential Cape Town activity, no visit to the city is complete without the much-loved local tradition of sundowners.
From coast to coast, we’ve rounded up our top three spots to enjoy a cocktail or glass of wine at the end of the day – fantastic views, guaranteed.
Chinchilla in Camps Bay
A relatively new addition to the famous palm tree-lined Camps Bay strip, Chinchilla is the latest offering from the respected Kove Collection, who have been bringing great food and wine to the Cape for years. From its elevate position, Chinchilla gives you those sunset views that visitors travel days to see, together with a variety of well-priced cocktails – we have it on good authority that their frozen margaritas are well worth trying. That, together with an easy-going food menu of burgers, seafood favourites and sweet treats, make Chinchilla the new go-to cocktail spot in Camps Bay.

Tintswalo Atlantic in Hout Bay
Hidden below Chapmans Peak Drive, you would easily drive past this luxury oasis, which, only adds to its appeal. Apart from 10 luxurious ocean-facing suites, Tintswalo Atlantic also has a restaurant and enviable deck area that locals are welcome to enjoy. With views across the bay and a sunset that is nothing short of magical, we’re sure that experiencing it just once won’t be enough. Bookings are strongly recommended, as the location is intimate – but, absolutely worth it.

Join the them on a Thursday evening for the local community market, pick up a few treats and a bottle of wine, and enjoy your bounty on the lawns as you watch the sun set.
