Beach Wedding Venues in Cape Town

12 Apostles Hotel and Spa

You’ve said “yes” and now it’s time to start planning the wedding of the year. While many excited couples opt for wine farm wedding venues in Cape Town – of which there are many; there is also the option to enjoy a coastal or beach wedding venue. The Cape offers one of the most spectacular coastlines with rocky outcrops, sandy beaches and sweeping views of endless ocean and mountain. The perfect vistas and romantic setting of the Cape’s beaches is ideal for couples looking to tie the knot.
