natural ampitheatre created by the famous Table Mountain to the back (south), the
mountain ranges "Signal Hill" and "Lions Head" to the West and "Devils Peak" to
the East. These suburbs surround Cape Town City Centre, The Waterfront and the part
of the Atlantic Ocean, we call "Table Bay".

entertainment and nightlife as well as the Atlantic Seaboard's trendy beaches and
the V&A Waterfront. Being so close to where the Dutch settlers first landed, this
area is seeped in history with many Victorian, Cape Dutch and Edwardian properties.
In contrast to this, the slopes of Table Mountain host a number of stunning modern
architecture, boasting spectacular panoramic views of the city and the harbour.
