Go horse riding on Noordhoek Beach

Here we have a combination of two beautiful things; watching the sunset at one of the most beautiful beaches in Cape Town (Noordhoek beach) and riding a horse. If you like horses this will definitely be a romantic experience you will remember for the rest of your life. If you’re not an experienced rider you can take a lesson first. They are offering private horse riding lessons for avid riders to make it even more romantic (R600 for an hour). You can do a bush trail(R285) or a beach trail (R460).

Go for wine tasting in Stellenbosch

The romantic vibe starts already at the Marianne Wine Estate because it’s a French farm. You can say a lot about the French people but they do have a romantic ambiance. At this farm, it’s possible to taste old wines because they are made to improve with age and are released later than any South African wines. What is more fun to get tipsy together at wonderful winelands, and still have an educational day. The prices at Marianne Wine Estate starts at R50 for just a tasting or R300 for a two-hour blending tour.
