Kloof Corner

You probably expected Table Mountain, Lion's Head, and Camp Bay to make this list of the best Instagrammable spots in Cape Town, didn't you? And they are, technically, on the list. Or rather, a spot that gives you the best view of these incredible sights! Kloof Corner is a short hike up the Table Mountain Nature Reserve. When you reach the very top, you place yourself at the perfect vantage point to bask in these magnificent natural wonders and all their natural glory! You do have to be careful, however, because the peak isn't exactly the most stable.

Bo-Kaap

Now, let's explore the actual city and the many colorful neighborhoods of Cape Town. And speaking of 'colorful,' there's always one area that immediately comes to mind: Bo-Kaap! Known as the Malay Quarter of the Western Cape, this place is a series of brightly-colored houses, each more vivid than the next. The entire neighborhood practically looks like a Lego town or a series of Barbie dreamhouses. Taking a selfie on the street will definitely make for great Instagram fodder. There's no doubt your followers would overlook these wildly-hued homes. As for you, apart from just taking pictures, soak up the fascinating culture here as well!

Woodstock

Woodstock is a pretty trendy and lively part of Cape Town. It's pretty hipster in its energy, sort of like Brooklyn in New York or the Latin Quarter in Paris. From its cool cafes and many hip haunts, you'll likely spend a lot of your time here. And when you do, don't forget to snap some pictures of the area's awesome street art. There are countless of them all throughout Woodstock. From striking murals to political paintings, there are so many that will catch your attention. And rest assured that your followers will love seeing them on your timeline too!

Charly’s Bakery

In the largely residential area of District Six, where beautiful homes and luxury rentals in Cape Town abound, Charly’s Bakery is an absolute must-see! This is not your ordinary bakery and dessert shop. Its pink-striped colonial-style exterior will already tell you that. Charly’s Bakery is where you get some of the sweetest desserts and pastries around. And would you believe it? Their treats are Instagram-worthy too! Some are decorated with icing slogans, bright colors, and more. Your Instagram would sooner turn into a foodie page the more you spend time here!

Muizenberg Beach

Let's end this list of Instagramable spots in Cape Town with two of its most famous beaches. And don't worry! They offer something more than just picturesque coasts. First up is Muizenberg Beach. Beloved for its big waves that draw many of the city's surfers to its shore, it's actually the array of brightly-colored changing huts that have made this place pretty iconic. They're not as fantastical as the brightly-hued homes in Bo-Kaap. On the contrary, the colors here are rather rich. But when seen against the white sandy shoreline and the blue tones of the sea, they pop out like a Picasso painting.

Boulder’s Beach

The second Cape Town beach on this list is Boulder’s Beach, located on the coast of Simon's Town. There may be no colorful huts here, but there are a few fine feathered friends worth visiting. These are the African penguins. You probably never expected to see these adorable creatures in South Africa, let alone in Cape Town, did you? After all, this isn't Antarctica. But Boulder’s Beach is, in fact, the home and haven for these flightless birds. Your Instagram followers will no doubt fawn over their adorable cuteness. And make sure you get a video of them zooming to the sea like launching torpedoes!
