It’s that time of year again, summer in Cape Town! As the weather begins to get warmer and the days start getting longer, we get really creative with our date night ideas in this beautiful mother city.

Whether you’re trying to take things to the next level after one too many Netflix and Chill nights or just looking to add a little spice into a long-term relationship, we’ve put together some of our favourite date night ideas in Cape Town.

Go Horse Riding Together at Noordhoekhorse riding in Noordhoek

There’s just something so romantic about horse riding with the beach on one side and beautiful mountain views on the other. Plus, there's no need to feel pressured to have professional riding skills – the point is to have a good time strolling along next to each other!

Cape Town has countless great spas and retreats. Treat yourself and that special someone to a host of amazing spa’s around the city (with 12 Apostles, Life Day Spa and Cape Royale as a few great options) and enjoy downtime with a delicious lunch (or dinner) date after your heavenly massage. Has there ever been a better combo? 

Enjoy A Romantic Sunset Boat Cruisesunset cruise Cape Town

There are few places on earth where you can find miles of beautiful coastal scenery and an endless stunning coastline like you do in the cape – take full advantage of this and book a sunset cruise to Clifton from the V&A Waterfront.

Enjoy the tranquillity of the open water as you enjoy a glass of bubbly and watch the sunset.

Watch a Movie Under the Starsgalileo open air cinema Cape Town

Nothing quite beats a good old movie night – but you can take it up a notch with the Galileo Open Air Cinema. Shows take place in various scenic locations across the cape.

Whether you’re both looking to catch an old classic romantic comedy or seeking a thrill with a horror – there’s bound to be something you’ll enjoy together while snuggled up under the stars.

Plan a Picnic at Kirstenbosch Gardenscouple picnic Kirstenbosch

Picnicking amongst the beautiful flora and fauna of Kirstenbosch is a rite of passage for all young (and old, we don’t discriminate) lovers in Cape Town.

Pack a picnic basket with all your favourite treats and head to these beautiful botanical gardens to soak up the sun and great conversation. 

Cycle Along Sea Point Promenadecouple cycling promenade

It doesn’t matter if you haven’t been on a bicycle in years – we won’t judge and chances are neither will your date! Enjoy the ocean breeze in your hair as you cruise along Sea Point Promenade.

Our tip? End of the cycling with a nice big scoop of ice-cream. Go on, you both deserve it!
