Sunday Summer Sessions

Cape Town is bursting with fun and fabulous things to do, especially when the weather plays along. Sundays are for relaxing and enjoying our beautiful city, from watching a movie under the stars to dancing along to local tunes - Sundays in summer are not to be missed.

Sunday Summer Sessions

If watching a movie under a starry sky sounds good, then check out Galileo Open Air Cinema’s line up of silver screen classics (and some recent favourites) that will be screened at various scenic venues in and around Cape Town from 16 October 2019 until 25 April 2020. Blankets and backrests are available for hire, and there are vendors selling food and beverages at the location. There’s also a special romantic package for couples, where a reserved area with blankets, pillows and Frey chocolates are provided. Get there before the movie starts, so you can enjoy the live music and festive atmosphere and reserve your spot on the lawn.

Sunday is also when Cape Town locals and travellers alike head to the beach. If you aren’t staying at The Last Word Long Beach then head over to Clifton, Camps Bay or Llandudno for a relaxing day and enjoy the sun, surf and sea. However, if you prefer to be by the sea and still explore then Kalk Bay, Simons Town or Muizenberg is for you, their abundance of shops and restaurants will keep you entertained all day.

Markets are for browsing local fresh produce, tasty treats and amazing crafts. The OZCF Market takes places on a Sunday right next to the V&A Waterfront in Granger Bay. Locals flock to the market after their morning run on the Sea Point Promenade or before heading down to the beach for the afternoon. You’ll find everything here from incredible locally made baskets to delicious pies from the famous Foodbarn Deli in Noordhoek. Be sure to stop by the Hog House Bakery for their delicious Pastéis de nata tarts- they are a best seller at the market. The market is open from 9am to 3pm.
