-For some of the most breathtaking Cape Town Sunsets, head down to Sunset Rocks on Llundudno Beach (On Llundudno beach walk further down until you reach an area of huge boulders, walk deeper in until you reach the caves within the boulders) ask the local surfers on the beach for directions once there). Bring along a picnic & that someone special:) Lovely, intimate, truly beautiful spot off the beaten track.
