Sea Point Promenade

Offering sea-sprayed solace to everyone from power-walking gym bunnies to pram-pushing mothers, this strip on the lip of the Atlantic is the ideal spot for a people-watching picnic. Kids and the young at heart are spoiled for choice when it comes to traditional seaside action with lovely merry-go-rounds, swings and slides all calling out to be used. Serious swimmers can perfect their stroke at the open-air Sea Point swimming pool complex, while children can bomb each other from the spring-boarded pool.
