Cape Town offers leisure activities to suit everyone. Those in search of adventure can go paragliding out into the blue from Lion's Head, or abseiling off Table Mountain or swimming with sharks from within the safety of a cage in False Bay. For the more relaxed enthusiast there is rollerblading, mountain biking, and horse riding. There are numerous participative or spectator water sports.
The Cape is also noted for its excellent surfing and wind surfing spots, while snorkeling and diving, sea kayaking, inflatable boating and jet skiing offer the chance to explore another dimension of the Cape Peninsula. Horse racing's highlight is the annual J&B Metropolitan at Kenilworth racecourse, the richest purse in the Cape
Avid golfers can enjoy the region's superb courses. Choose a tree-lined suburban course such as Rondebosch, a links-style course such as Milnerton, or a challenging championship course like Erinvale in Somerset West.
The Victorian-style Pavilion is the ideal venue for wedding ceremonies and receptions. The Pavilion is positioned on a piazza just outside the Table Bay's imposing Ballroom, and shelters behind the historic breakwater wall of the Cape Town harbour.
The 163 metre square Pavilion can accommodate up to 120 people at a cocktail function and 72 seated at individual tables for personalised service.
