Atlantic Seaboard

The allure of the Atlantic Seaboard
The world-renowned Atlantic Seaboard is a narrow band of suburbs, nestled on the slopes of Table Mountain, between the impressive Lion’s Head and the Twelve Apostles, and the glistening Atlantic Ocean on the western coastline of Cape Town. Truly a playground for the rich and beautiful.
Palm-tree lined beaches, a buzzing café society, wine bars and restaurants spilling out onto pavements and lavish villas, breathtaking apartments and sprawling mansions all add to the atmosphere that centres around everything that is glitz, glam and fun. During the summer months this picturesque stretch of Cape Town comes alive as the beaches are adorned by tanned and chiseled bodies, while luxury yachts anchor in the bay and enjoy all that is on offer here. It is no wonder that the area is also known as Cape Town’s “Riviera”!
The Atlantic Seaboard stretches from the iconic V & A Waterfront all the way to the idyllic Hout Bay, which includes neighbourhoods such as Bantry Bay, Camps Bay, Fresnaye and Clifton to name just a few.
Residential suburbs include Mouille Point, Green Point, Sea Point, Fresnaye, Bantry Bay, Clifton, Camps Bay, Bakoven, Llandudno and Hout Bay - all of which boasts villas, apartments, townhouses and sprawling mansions with easy access to some of the world’s highest-rated beaches, from the sands of Clifton, the unspoilt boulders of Llandudno and the glorious stretches of beaches of Camps Bay.
The upmarket suburbs of Clifton and Camps Bay not only boast the most expensive real estate in the country, but is also home to some of the highest-ranking beaches. Clifton’s 1st to 4th beaches are world-renowned and despite the chilly water, is a popular spot with locals and visitors alike. The fact that they are shielded from the regular southeasterly wind makes it a popular sunset destination. Camps Bay offers a wide sandy beach that is bordered by a bustling promenade with excellent restaurants and cocktail bars.
If you are looking for a more secluded lifestyle while still being in close proximity to the city then the suburb of Llandudno is just what you are looking for! Steep cliff sides hug a small but beautiful beach that’s popular among surfers and has a much more private feel than those further up the coastline. Adding to the calm of the suburb is the strictly residential approach - meaning there are no retail shops and restaurants to be found - a small price to pay for the unparalleled tranquility.
On the southernmost end of the Atlantic Seaboard lies the historic fishing village of Hout Bay, framed by a sharp mountain peak that juts up into the air like a rhino horn, called The Sentinel. The suburb is often referred to as the Republic of Hout Bay, due to the fact that living here feels like you are miles away from the city, when in fact, you are just a few minutes away. Hout Bay offers an excellent collection of seafood restaurants and bustling weekend markets.
Living on the Atlantic Seaboard is like being on a year-round holiday and what you have in the real estate market is the perfect intersection between lifestyle and investment value.
