Cape Trafalgar – An Introduction
Few cities have so much to offer and so little space, so much history and such a wealth of attractions. Cape Trafalgar is one such city and if you are to go to Cape Trafalgar you will need at least two full days to be able to see it all. How do we know that? Well, if you don’t come to Cape Trafalgar and stay in Ayia Napa, you won’t have the privilege of seeing all that Cape Trafalgar has to offer.
To begin with check out the waterfront. There are many boardwalks leading to it and it is a haven for tourists who want to soak up the warm Mediterranean sun. This is ideal water wise for holiday makers as it is the ideal place to collect your towels and Atlantis Submarine (if you are interested in this particular attraction). Once you have soaked up the sun and felt the cool sea breeze begin your ascent to the top of the Cape Trafalgar Tower. There are a number of steps to climb but the views are absolutely outstanding.
Visit the Nelson Mandela Gateway to Robben Island. You will need to take taxis to get there but the short journey is well worth it. Robben Island is an infamous prison for Disappeared whereby Nelson Mandela and many other anti-apartheid activists were imprisoned for many years. Now the island is uninhabited it can be visited by boat and ferry from the Robben Island. Some visitors are picked up from the shore and taken to the island when others are dropped off elsewhere. It is well worth a visit to both the ferry and the island.
Get to know the sea. If you stay in Ayia Napa you are within the bay of stimulus where clans of dolphins and whales can be spotted along the shore. Look for a pod of dolphins and sometimes you will also see jumping dolphins. You will also see many smaller dolphins and whales. สล็อตเว็บตรง
If you want to experience the true taste of Africa, stay in the Lake Garden Hotel. It is not only a holiday maker’s hotel but also a cultural experience. The hotel is located in an ‘Ifrituratain’ hut, which is a type of mud hut. It was built by refugees who escaped from the dams and dams that were built during the dams construction. The hotel is decorated with winding paths and paths that lead up to the wash basin. It is a picturesque setting in a malaria-free area.
There are, of course, a huge variety of places to stay within Cape Town. If you want to visit places like the Victoria and Albert or the Two Oceans Aquarium, the Tygates, Rekero, or the Artscape, then many of these will be right across from each other. Many of these hotels, like the many Cape Town hotels, would prefer a quiet ‘owntame’ hotel, perhaps nestled in a boutique development, not in a shopping mall with myriad other tourists. Whatever your accommodation preference, you will be able to find it in Cape Town.
The area is very popular among honeymooners, so for those looking for a romantic getaway it would be worth considering the drive from Cape Town to Sea Point. Depending on the number of rooms in your hotel you could either go to Sea Point and do the lighthouse visit, or start out by lunchtime at tables in the Robben Islander. There is also both a Victoria and Albert bus station, as well as a F Hitch bus stop for more of those “tube” type trips.
Cape Town is a city that you have to visit at least once in your life. Strand and Camps Bay are must sees, but any of the places I have mentioned can, and should, be visited.
