Sea Point Accommodation

Sea Point is the only high-rise area available along the entire Cape Town shoreline and therefore a very popular area for living, investing and owning first or second homes and apartments. Before the upward rise of its real estate it used to be regarded in parts as a dangerous area, as some apartment blocks were neglected by absentee owners. Many foreigners and local investors see it as a place of urban rejuvenation with many Dutch, German and British owned properties.

An important communal space is the beachfront promenade, a paved walkway along the beachfront used by residents and tourists for walking, jogging or socialising. Looking upwards from the promenade towards Lion's Head and Signal Hill on either side of Table Mountain the suburb shows its more exclusive areas against the upper mountainside within the so-called "Avenues", connecting roads which lead towards the upper edge of the suburb.

All along the oceanside of the Sea Point promenade the coastline has different characteristics. Some parts are rocky and almost inaccessible, other parts have open beaches. Sea Point beach adjoins an olympic sized seawater swimming pool, another beach further towards the city is known as Rocklands. Sea Point's beaches are generally covered with washed up mussels from the oceanside, unlike the beaches of Clifton and Camps Bay. The rocks off the beaches are Basaltic, with extensive beds of kelp seaweed offshore. Unlike the Indian Ocean side of the peninsula, the water is colder.

Graaff's Pool, named after Sir David Graaff who first built it, is a U-shaped concrete structure built out on the rocks, a walkway measuring about 50m into the ocean and ending in a broader T-shape. It is often used by couples and tourists on their late afternoon walk to experience the fresh air from the ocean.
