Back at work but want to hold on to that summer feeling to help you make it through to the weekend?

There’s still a whole lot of summer left

Currently, the sun is setting later, the days are longer and it’s that time of year when everyone is going back to work – even though we really don’t want to.

We’re still looking at those summer holiday photos and wishing we could be off to enjoy the best that Cape Town has to offer. Thankfully, if you’re lucky enough to live in Cape Town, you totally can!

Here are five easy ways to hang on to that summer vibe:

1. Go to the beach

This might sound like a no-brainer, but we often forget that, yes, we can just go to the beach for no reason, even if we’re back at work. Pack your beach bag the night before and look up the closest beach to your office or home. Then head there straight after work.

With the sun only setting at around 8pm in summer, you could easily get at least two hours of beach time in before you need to head home. Nothing makes you feel more like you’re still on holiday than spending time at the beach.

2. Enjoy after-work summer foods and drinks at a great location



Cocktails, mocktails, beers and more – there are many beverages that you can indulge in after a long day at the office. Head to a spot like the Radisson Blu Hotel Waterfront where you are able to taste some amazing Tiki cocktails made by the new barman, AJ Snetler, and you can also give the new tapas menu a try.

Think unique treats like ostrich bobotie, crisp cumin calamari tentacles, smoked snoek and onion samosa. Plus, you will enjoy what is one of the best views in Cape Town. An after-work session here will definitely make you feel as though you are still in full holiday mode.
