Adore it or abhor it, you can’t escape the universal day of love. And while Valentine’s Day (14 February, for those who tend to forget) has become an age-old tradition defined by shop-bought red roses, heart-smattered teddy bears and boxes upon boxes of gooey chocolates, your personal Cupid-themed celebration doesn’t have to be quite so cliché. So, if you’re looking to spend Valentine’s Day in Cape Town (or any other amorous special occasion, for that matter), think outside the heart-shaped box and woo him or her with a truly inspired romantic escapade.
From incredible dinners and hotel stays to unique couples’ experiences and exclusive promos, here’s our pick of things to do this V-Day in Cape Town.
Alvin Dyers’ quartet features Zeke Le Grange, one of the most exciting young saxophonists in South Africa, with Tino Europa on bass and Roy Davids on drum kit. This quartet has played together for many years, performing classic jazz standards, South African jazz and original compositions with a uniquely Capetonian sound, that blends elements of Latin music, Cape Goema, African music and straight-ahead jazz.
Alvin Dyers was born in Harfield Village in Cape Town in 1953. He started playing guitar from the age of seven. He formed his first band called Sacred Legion with his equally talented brother, Errol Dyers. He also formed part of the group musicians that played in Pacific Express in the ‘80s. Some of the musicians he has played with include other legends, for example Winston Mankunku, Ezra Ngcukana, Johnny Fourie, Robbie Jansen and many more. He is currently a jazz guitar teacher at the University of Cape Town where he continues to nurture and inspire another generation of jazz musicians in the province.

As the cornerstone of the Muizenberg community, the Blue Bird Garage Food & Goods Market takes place every Friday night in a beautiful old postal plane hangar on the edge of this urban village. You will find this space filled with a collection of local Artisans, specialty cooks, bakers, producers and Designers. We bring the butcher, the baker, the t shirt maker together under one eclectic, creative, vibey roof.
Handpicked South African wines, craft beer, delicious food, live music from local artists, a creative kids area and great company are all part of the tapestry that makes this a very unique and inviting market experience.
This is Africa’s biggest kite festival and attracts over 20,000 visitors, including some of the biggest names in kiting in South Africa and the world who fly in to show off their magnificent kite creations.
With kite-making, kite-flying, food stalls, kiddies’ rides, a full programme of entertainment and an eclectic craft market, this is family entertainment at its best.
The Cape Town International Kite Festival happens on (and above) the lawns of Zandvlei Nature Reserve, Muizenberg (corner Axminster and The Row), from 10:00 to 18:00 daily. There is an entry fee payable on the day – proceeds go to Cape Mental Health, a not-for profit organization.
