Though Johannesburg is South Africa’s most populous town, Cape Town is a much more popular tourist destination. Cape Town is arguably the most popular tourist destination in all of Africa, in part due to the gorgeous Mediterranean climate, beaches, and well developed infrastructure.
Cape Town's beaches, particularly Clifton Beach, are famous. The city’s unique geography divides the city’s beaches into two distinct camps: the Atlantic Seaboard and the False Bay coast. The beaches of False Bay significantly much warmer, though the beaches along the Atlantic coast are better developed with more restaurants and bars. The Victoria and Albert Waterfront is also nearby, home to the Two Oceans Aquarium.
Cape Town is also popular for its proximity to Table Mountain, Robben Island, Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden, and South African wine country.
