Romantic Pursuits 2012

It’s the start of 2012 with fresh beginnings and love is definitely in the air – with long summer days, Valentines’ Day and a whole month of love in February! If you need to be inspired to romance your loved one, then look no further than the Cape Point Route.  The area is loaded with idyllic sunset spots, spectacular backdrops of mountain and sea, cozy eateries, “private” picnic spots, activities for 2 and plenty of romantic accommodation venues from trendy love nests to rustic mountain retreats.

Whether you are new lovers or married with kids in desperate need to squeeze in a romantic rendezvous, there are options of luxury accommodation to small self catering beach shacks. And while booking a night at a local establishment may not seem as exotic as a trip to a Caribbean Island, heading around the corner for a break is hard to beat. It doesn’t take as long to get there, it’s less expensive and all you need is an overnight bag! Time to fall in love again!
