The Sea Point Promenade is a paved walkway along the beach-front, stretching roughly 11 kilometers from Mouille Point near the Waterfront to Sea Point. It offers a fantastic panoramic view of the Atlantic Ocean, making it one of Cape Town’s major attractions. The “Prom”, as what locals call it, is perfect for some fun family activities. It has an outdoor gym, kids’ playground, swimming pools, and art displays. It is also considered as the hub of urban entertainment because of a number of pubs, nightclubs, coffee shops, and restaurants along the Main Road.
The Sea Point Promenade also brings together people from all walks of life. Joggers, cyclists, dog walkers and skaters flock the area, especially during sunset. One of the best ways to enjoy the promenade is by skateboarding. There was once a time when skateboarding was banned on Sea Point Promenade. Today, skateboards are now welcome on the promenade.
To celebrate the City’s lifting of the ban on skateboarding and rollerblading on the Sea Point Promenade, a weekly sunset social push/roll/skate called Promenade Mondays are held every Monday, 6 pm at Queen’s Beach Parking lot. The event was organized by Marco Morgan, a representative of the National Skateboarding Collective. Skateboards, longboards, rollerblades, roller-skates, BMX’s and all things “skate” are welcome to join in order to connect and share the Sea Point Promenade. The event is a fantastic way to unwind, catch up with friends and watch the beautiful Cape Town sunset.
Truly, the Sea Point Promenade makes for an interesting place to visit in Cape Town.
