Just beyond Green Point lies the solace of Mouille Point. It presents a brilliant view of the vast Atlantic Ocean, with delectable food around every corner and an assortment of activities from golf to surfing almost 300 days a year.
Known for its cascading apartment blocks and trendy beachfront eateries, Mouille Point is a quiet ‘beach town’ suburb only 10 minutes away from Cape Town’s central business district.
- Play a game of golf between the ocean & the mountain at the Metropolitan Golf Club
- For family fun, head to the putt-putt course on the promenade
- Popular restaurants like Pepenero, Hussar Grill, and Sotano are dotted along Beach Road for dining with an impressive view
This relatively narrow area hugs the ocean from the V&A Waterfront to the corner of Beach Road and Beach Road (a little confusing!) at Sea Point's boundary. Apartment blocks tend to have impressive views, either of the Atlantic Ocean or over the green belt of the urban park and Cape Town Stadium.
Incorrectly considered to be the 'Mouille Point Lighthouse', the red and white striped landmark is actually the 'Green Point Lighthouse', purely because the original Mouille Point version was located further down the road and no longer exists. Tradition dictates that a new lighthouse cannot take the name of an old one.
Just east of the lighthouse, surfers clamber over rockpools to reach a small surf zone known as Off the Wall. The name is taken from the post literally lying where the retaining wall of the promenade meets the beach.
Breakfast, long lunches, sundowners, and elegant dinners can all be enjoyed along Beach Road at excellent coffee shops, delis, and restaurants. The V&A Waterfront is close by as is Sea Point, De Waterkant, and the city centre.View other areas >
