Visitors: 170

In South Africa we have a number of public holidays to take advantage of. Taking only a few days of leave around the Easter holidays results in a substantial amount of time off. Why not spend that time exploring another area of the country?

In terms of Easter weekend things to do, Western Cape travel certainly offers a number of rewards. Travel Western Cape and surround yourself with nature, culture and interesting activities for the whole family.

Easter Weekend Things to do

No matter what you’re into, Western Cape travel is an option you’ll definitely find satisfaction in. The province attracts tourists worldwide to the wondefully-diverse attractions ranging from the Cape Winelands to the Cango Caves and the Victoria and Alfred Waterfront. For the more adventurous travellers, the Western Cape offers whale watching in Hermanus and white shark cage diving in Gansbaai.

Here are a few ideas to spark some inspiration:

  • Take a trip to Paternoster – famed as a picturesque fishing village that maintains the traditions of yesteryear, Paternoster offers some of the most incredibly tasty seafood imaginable. Take a stroll along magnificent, unspoiled beaches, hike through fynbos and finish your day off with some delectable oysters overlooking the Atlantic Ocean.
  • Learn how to surf! If learning to surf is on your bucket list there’s no better time to do it than right now and few better places than Muizenberg.
  • Get in touch with nature at the De Hoop Nature Reserve - a range of Easter activities have been planned for adults and kids alike. This is a must-do for a family trip with a difference.
  • Oyster and Champagne Festival – this has become a popular event at Bloemendal Wine Estate. Combining great food, wine and live bands; you simply cannot go wrong!

If none of the above tickle your fancy, why not grab your handy Cape Town travel guide, hire a car and create an adventure of your own?
