LOCAL INFO

The President Hotel is situated in Sea Point, right on the Promenade overlooking the Altantic Ocean, and right under Lion's Head. Apart from its superb setting, it is also positioned right on Sea Point Main Road, with easy access to loads of high street shops. This page includes some handy local knowledge for you the traveller on what is available in walking distance and slightly further afield.

Sea Point Main Road, a 2 minute walk from the hotel, is a busy and active High Street with many shops, a couple of large supermarkets, a couple of small malls and almost everything you might need in your race prep you should be able to find here. Most of the shops listed below are 2-10 minute walk from the hotel, on Main Road.

In the opposite direction are Clifton Beach, about a 10 minute scenic walk, and Camps Bay 20 minute walk. Camps Bay has many restaurants and bars set on a seaside strip overlooking the ocean and the setting sun.

Getting in to the City is a short drive in an Uber or taxi, about 10 - 15 minutes. It is not far, but only accessible via windy steep roads or busy Main or High Level Road and always takes a little time.
