Catch your breath as you fly over the pristine white beaches, deep azure waters and endless aerial views of the Atlantic coast along the Twelve Apostles, all the way to Hout Bay

If you’re dreaming of admiring Cape Town’s vast ocean vistas, the Atlantico is an idyllic treat. Upon departing from NAC Helicopters’ base at the V&A Waterfront, you’ll soar over Cape Town’s scenic City Bowl, and out over the Atlantic Ocean.

To your right, you’ll see breathtaking blue-green water stretching past the horizon, interrupted only by the occasional whale or dolphin. To your left, the majestic Table Mountain and the Twelve Apostles mountain range stand proudly, rolling down into the sandy white beaches and seaside suburbs of Clifton and Camps Bay – and further afield, Llandudno.

You’ll see Seal Island on your right, before crossing into Hout Bay and Chapman’s Peak’s unspoiled cove. Then you’ll get to experience it all again, as you journey back along the Peninsula to the V&A Waterfront.

V&A Waterfront
Starting Point

The city meets the sea in Cape Town’s unique lifestyle experience. The V&A Waterfront is world-renowned for its luxury hotels, dining experiences, retail stores and entertainment facilities – in addition to being a working harbour and the home of NAC Helicopters Cape Town.

Table Mountain – Highlight
Table Mountain

One of the world’s Seven Natural Wonders, Table Mountain’s flat top is an iconic silhouette and a beloved symbol of Cape Town. Forming part of the spectacular Twelve Apostles mountain range, Table Mountain is an almost instantly-recognisable symbol. With its scenic “tablecloth” of dense cloud, the mountain is almost always ready for a photo opportunity.

City Bowl

Lovingly named the City Bowl, Cape Town’s CBD is tucked between Table Mountain and the Atlantic Ocean. It reaches from the bustling V&A Waterfront to the historical neighbourhoods of Bo-Kaap, Oranjezicht and Tamboerskloof on the slopes of the mountain.

Green Point

Green Point is a bustling section of Cape Town where sea, suburb and city meet. Home to the iconic Cape Town Stadium (previously Green Point Stadium), this picturesque strip’s diverse offering is popular with permanent residents, holidaymakers and businesspeople alike.

HL – Sea Point@2x-min
Sea Point

Just off Sea Point’s trendy main road lined with nightclubs and restaurants, you can curl your toes on the beach. Featuring the popular Sea Point Promenade and historic Pavilion Swimming Pool, it’s a uniquely unforgettable suburb of Cape Town.


Reputed as the French Riviera of South Africa, the upmarket coastal suburb of Clifton features azure waters and glowing white sand. One of Cape Town’s premier tourist spots, its luxury seafront apartments, uninterrupted views and powdery beaches attract locals and tourists alike.

Camps Bay

Just beyond Clifton’s Fourth Beach lies the glamorous yet laid-back suburb of Camps Bay. The palm tree-lined boulevards extend to white beaches and vivid waters opposite a bustling strip of world-class restaurants, cafès and clubs looking out over the sea.

Twelve Apostles

Towering above the Atlantic Ocean, the Twelve Apostles Mountain Range extends from Table Mountain, above Camps Bay to Llandudno. While it’s technically the back of Table Mountain, it’s also one of the most scenic stretches of coastline in the world.


Undoubtedly one of Cape Town’s finest beaches, Llandudno is the beachgoers’ best kept secret. Semi-sheltered by natural granite, this tropical gem boasts icy blue waters, fine white sand and unforgettable sunsets, while limited parking makes it exclusive by keeping visitors sparse.

Hout Bay

Hout Bay’s dense green forests, pristine bay and old-school harbour make it one of the most picturesque seaside towns in the Cape. And what’s more – if you look to the horizon during whale season you may well spot whales and their calves frolicking off the shallows’ edge.
