If you miss your serve because you're distracted by the view, it's completely understandable. The St. James Retirement Hotel holds the key that unlocks the gate to the tennis court with this stunning view. In the distance, you'll spot surfers catch waves at nearby Danger Beach, and in the spring months, you might even catch a glimpse of a whale or two.
The hotel is located across from the St. James MetroRail station. Just tell the security guard at the gate you'd like to use the court and he'll let you in. At reception, you'll need to give your name and phone number. At R20 per hour, it's a bargain and a small price to pay for one of the coolest courts in Cape Town.
