Visit the Cape peninsula and all the beautiful alternative places in there, such as the historic Cape of Good Hope, and the beautiful and unique African penguin colony at the Boulders Beach. On the False Bay side of the peninsula there are some popular beaches, more frequented because of the warm waters and the soft white sand.
