Sea Point is a suburb of Cape Town which is situated on a narrow stretch of land between Cape Town’s well known Table Mountain in the southeast and the Atlantic ocean in the northwest. It is a high density suburb where space is at a premium due to its prime oceanside location. Houses are built closely together towards the northern mountainside while many apartment buildings are more common from its centre and towards the beachfront. 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.

Adjoining Sea Point is Three Anchor Bay. 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 (11C – 16C).
