Set in the heart of the picturesque Swiss city of Geneva, the Hotel d'Angleterre combines the joys of a central location – the complimentary boat shuttle service leaves from just outside the hotel – with the relaxing atmosphere of a lakeside retreat.
‘SUP’ is hugely popular in Cape Town, with paddle-boarders exploring the crystal clear canals of the V&A Waterfront, admiring the city views from the Atlantic, or taking on one of the city’s many surf breaks. SUP rentals and guided tours are available year-round.
The waters of the Western Cape are home to dozens of cetacean species, from families of orca and resident pods of bottlenose dolphins to the southern right whales that migrate here from Antarctica during the winter months (June to September). While exceptional whale and dolphin sightings are often enjoyed from the hotel, boat-based whale-watching excursions are the most memorable way to admire these animals in their natural habitat.
Enjoy a unique perspective on Cape Town – also known as the ‘Tavern of the Seas’ – with a kayak tour along the city’s Atlantic Seaboard. Guided kayak tours depart daily (weather permitting) from Three Anchor Bay to explore the beautiful coastline stretching from the V&A Waterfront to Clifton. Close-up encounters with pods of dolphin are a regular highlight. If you’d prefer to go it alone, kayak rentals are available.
