The point of investing in Sea Point
It has been said that the sea breeze in Sea Point has the scent of freedom. This stylish suburb forms part of Cape Town's famed Atlantic Seaboard, and it offers a lifestyle in which health is wealth and where beautiful scenery is the backdrop for lives well lived. The story of Sea Point began way back in 1767, and the area continues to evolve and remain on the cutting edge of sophistication in the Mother City.
The Sea Point lifestyle is active, outdoorsy and cosmopolitan. The promenade is home to an outdoor gymnasium that is well appreciated by locals, who use it when they are not walking, jogging, cycling or roller-blading along this famed stretch of beachfront. Other activities such as surfing, paragliding and people-watching are popular pastimes in Sea Point and there is no shortage of places to stop for a coffee or a cocktail and a catch-up.
Sea Point is not famous for its restaurants for nothing, and foodies are spoilt for choice with an assortment of highly regarded restaurants such as La Mouette, Three Wise Monkeys and Scheckter's RAW, amongst various others.
Other hotspots of Sea Point include Mojo Market, which is both a food and lifestyle market and the perfect place to meet old friends or make new ones, and pick up an array of local produce and goodies that have been prepared in and around the area. The two 18-hole putt putt courses in nearby Mouille Point are a perennial favourite for families, and the Sea Point Pavilion Swimming Pool offers the perfect place to make a splash during the summer months.

It is a suburb in which eclectic meets sophisticated, and in which residents are offered a unique take on life in the Mother City.
