Sport in Cape Town is a real part of the culture. Many South Africans practice regularly. Two of the most popular are rugby in winter and cricket in summer. You can attend matches at the main stadiums situated in Newlands, about 15 minutes from Cape Town, in the Southern Suburbs.

Morning, afternoon, evening – no matter the time of day, you will find runners on the Promenade in Sea Point. Sometimes they run alone, but you can also see groups of 20 people. And this is not all you will find on the Promenade. You will see bicycles and people on skateboards, roller skates and scooters as well.

Board sports are very popular in Cape Town, and surfing is particularly renowned in South Africa. Different surfing schools exist such as Stoked School of Surf, which is a mobile school. They drive you to the best beaches to teach you the magic of surfing. To learn about different beaches, we invite you to go to the Useful Info page and check out the Ocean posts.

If you prefer staying out of the water, Cape Town offers many possibilities. Go on a day trip to discover Table Mountain or Cape Point with Hoerikwaggo Table Mountain Trail. Here you will get the chance to view wildlife like tortoises, zebras and even chacma baboons. And if you prefer to relax during a round of golf in Steenberg Golf Club, you can play while enjoying the view.

On this page you will find numerous sport activities in Cape Town, and we post new activities regularly. Please don’t hesitate to mark them and share your opinions to help other travellers.

Thank you.
