An area of great natural beauty, mountains and beaches. One side faces the colder Atlantic Ocean but the strip on the Easterly side of False Bay is warmed by the Agulhas Current. Along with a wide choice of safe bathing spots, it is ideal for swimming and surfing.
The South of Cape Town is home to the University of Cape Town. Set mid-way between the city centre and Constantia, the Southern Suburbs are centrally positioned making it easy to reach most other areas of interest.

For sporting events, the Southern Suburbs are the obvious choice while for business travellers the location is central and convenient.
