V&A Waterfront

There is something undeniably romantic about sailing off into the sunset with your true love and with the Sea Princess you can do just that! In the heart of the V&A Waterfront you’ll find the Sea Princess Luxury Catamaran, which you can board for a sunset champagne cruise or book for a private charter. Top if off with some champagne and oysters as you and your partner soak it all in. Enjoy the tranquillity of the scene as the sun sets over one of the most incredible backdrops on the planet. This is sure to set the mood for an unforgettable night.

Drive-in Movie


Romance your love the old-school way with a night at the drive-in. Spier revives this outdoor cinema experience with screenings of classic movies under the Cape Town sky. Make a day of it in the Stellenbosch winelands then head over to Spier where you can buy snacks from the food stall at the screening. You can also sip a glass of your favourite Spier wine while cuddling up to your boo. Pre-order “Drive in Snack Packs to Share” filled with yummy treats like Angus Beef biltong and homemade brownies to nibble on. The drive-In costs just R250 per car and snack packs cost R180

Take a Hike

Lion’s Head

Even if you are not the outdoorsy kind of couple, a hike up Lion’s Head will be a great way to kick-start a day in the Mother City. Don your hiking shoes, pack a bag with coffee and croissants and take an early morning hike to watch the sun rise on the city. The hike is fairly easy so you don’t have to be super fit and it takes approximately 45 minutes to reach the top.

Kalk Bay meander & lunch

Kalk Bay

The picturesque and charming harbour-side town of Kalk Bay is one of the most popular destinations. Take a 30-minute drive from Cape Town CBD along the M5 and Boyes Drive, then ditch the car and amble down Main Road hand-in-hand with your love. You can shop for local art and design, browse through antique stores, grab some yummy ice cream and just enjoy the beautiful False Bay scenery. Once you’ve worked up an appetite take your seat at Harbour House, right on the waters’ edge for lunch with a view.

Dinner & a show at Stardust


Take your flame out for a night on the town to one of the Mother City’s local favourites – the near iconic theatre and dinner spot, StarDust. This is dinner and a show like you’ve never experienced it before. While you tuck into delicious fair such as the signature StarDust tagine or seafood platter, your waitrons will delight and enthral with amazing performances to keep you entertained.
