The history of the suburb is an intricate one. It was named by Sea Captain Sam Wallis in 1776, when he ported at Cape Town to avoid an outbreak of smallpox further on along his journey. Sea Point later started to grow as a residential suburb in the early 1800s. It became so popular that by the beginning of the 20th Century, its population had increased by almost 700%.
Initially classified as a whites only area during Apartheid, it is today the very definition of cosmopolitan, with an easy mix of people, regardless of age, race, religion, wealth or sexual orientation. With upmarket bars, restaurants and pubs dotted around it, the residents of the area are never without anything to do. The Olympic sized, salt water swimming pool has been the place to cool down since the 1950s and is still a popular landmark. The Mother City’s famed Promenade is also located in Sea Point and hundreds of fitness fanatics can be seen jogging up and down the seaside stretch. The amenities along the promenade also include a park and outdoor gym.
Real estate in Sea Point is some of the country’s most coveted. With everything from bachelor flats to expansive stand-alone houses on offer, Sea Point has something to offer everyone. The eclectic charm, panoramic ocean views and engaging culture of the area are enough to make any house a beautiful home.
