What to do in Atlantis

  • Atlantis is a water conservation area just about 30 minutes drive from Cape Town city center.
  • There's quite a number of activities you can do here if you have a chance to visit try out these activities.


  • The dunes here are as high as 114 feet and the terrain is really good, ideal for sandboarding.

Quad biking

  • For this one, you have to pay for your bike tour and rent a bike from one of the bike tour operators around Atlantis. No need to book in advance as the bikes are always readily available.

4x4 tours

  • For a group, you can opt to do a 4 WD car tour rather than bike tours, it is cheaper.

Watch the sun dip beyond the horizon

  • Signal Hill in Atlantis is an ideal spot for such.
  • Most tourists always finish their day by watching the sunset here.

PRO TIP: To avoid being extorted by vendors here carry your own snacks as well as sandboarding gear if you have some.
