Climbing activities are another very popular activity. You can go to Table Mountain by cable car, or you can meet your guide early in the morning with a group of people and reach the top of the mountain with a two to three-hour climb. If at least seven out of ten describes your fitness, you can easily climb. Of course on a windless day. In general, Table Mountain is climbed in the morning and Lion's Head close to sunset.

The coastline of about 6-7 km from the Waterfront to Camps Bay is very convenient for cycling. V&A Waterfront, Sea Point, Camps Bay, you can pick up your bike at one of these three locations and leave it at another. Note that traffic is from the left.

Boat tours are another fun activity. Sunset boat tours departing from the V&A allow you to look at the city with the sunset light, with catamarans or motor yachts between 18:00 and 19:30 in summer hours.
