Close to center
This popular residential area is close to the city center but provides a quieter and greener alternative to the bustling CBD. Green Point features its namesake park, which is a wonderful place for a stroll among its beautiful flowers, as well as the iconic Cape Town Stadium. The area is relatively close to the Atlantic Seaboard beaches and is also host to a number of espresso bars, seafood restaurant, bistros and quiet breweries. The area has fantastic transportation options, and is more authentic than the CBD, although this area can feel a little secluded at night and some caution is advised when walking alone. Green Point is also closest (just inland) of the famous tourist hotspot at the Victoria and Alfred Waterfront - Cape Town's foremost shopping and entertainment district. While there are no non-hotel options for staying at the V&A Waterfront, Green Point is closest and the Waterfront is considered always safe and completely walkable.
