Finding Cape Town – discover the best of Cape Town’s unknown tourist spots

Finding Cape Town showcases the best of Cape Town’s unknown tourist spots, made with the Cape Town local in mind.  The website presents an alternative view of the Cape Town City Bowl, the Southern Suburbs and the Cape Flats with detailed, customized maps for each location.  To make exploring these hotspots easier, the site also uses custom tags relevant to the Cape Town local such as “parking available”, “good for a student budget” and “proudly South African”.

Finding Cape Town is sleek and minimalistic but also young and fun with the use of flat icons and a playful colour scheme. The website is also suitable for those on the go, as its responsive design makes it accessible on mobile devices. This customized and accessible site works primarily off the premise that, since Cape Town is one of the world’s most popular tourist destinations, it is important that Cape Town locals also benefit from the wonders that the city has to offer.
