Gays discover the Cape of South Africa 

A uniquely spectacular gay destination | Gay holiday in beach villa

South Africa’s Cape region simply has it all. With its rich tapestry of pristine nature, spectacular landscapes, bustling cities, amazing food, and diverse cultures, the Cape Peninsula is the perfect place for gays to discover a new side of life. In addition to the fabulous weather, the Cape is bursting with inspiration for both heart and soul for gays:

  • Nature buffs will get their fill of breathtaking views, rugged landscapes, jagged coastlines, and endless stretches of beach

  • Animal lovers will be left in awe at the sight of penguins, dolphins, seals, ostriches, monkeys and even whales

  • Architectural aficionados will appreciate the elegant homes of the Cape, with their iconic use of glass, wood, and concrete

  • Design fans will be inspired by the uniquely South African combinations of exquisite fabrics as well as vibrant and unforgettably warm colours

  • Wine connoisseurs will discover the finest wines South Africa has to offer at one or many of the 150 wineries in the Cape region, many with stunning examples of Cape Dutch architecture

  • Shopping buffs will be able to shop to their heart’s content at one of the gigantic shopping malls on the Cape Peninsula offering everything imaginable

  • Gourmets will experience an extraordinary taste sensation at the many fine restaurants offering South African cuisine combined with many exotic Asian and European culinary influences


Gay & LGBTQ-friendly South Africa

South Africa is truly a unique country. Its 1996 Constitution specifically protects the full and equal rights of the LGBTQ+ community and bans all forms of anti-gay discrimination. In addition, same-sex marriage was legalised in 2006, making South Africa the first African nation and the fifth country in the world to do so.

Positive mindset in South Africa

This culture of openness has made it possible for a vibrant gay scene to develop and thrive in Cape Town. Its numerous LGBTQ-friendly clubs, restaurants and beaches have made the “Mother City” one of the Top 10 gay travel destinations in the world.

Cape Town has something for every gay

De Waterkant is the official heart of the LGBTQ scene and offers visitors a colourful array of bars, clubs, boutiques, and art galleries as well as numerous fine eateries to satisfy everyone’s taste buds. The bright and vivid streets of De Waterkant guarantee a positively memorable experience.
