Constantia is one of the most magical places for dog walks, and every canine will agree after exploring this incredible area. Within close reach of The Cellars-Hohenort, you will find walking trails such as the Constantia Belt, Klassenbosch Trail (just two minutes from the hotel’s entrance), Cecelia Forest (also a short distance away, accessed through Spilhouse and Hohenort Avenues). This exquisite forest forms part of Table Mountain National Park. It can also be followed in the other direction to connect to the Alphen Trail – another great walking route. The De Hel Nature Area is a hidden gem known only to locals and can be accessed from Brommersvlei Road. Look carefully for the sign – it’s easy to miss.
Other nearby walking trails to discover with your canine companion include Newlands Forest, which has a variety of trails, from easy to more challenging; the Pipe Track; Lower Tokai Plantation; and Blackburn Ravine in Hout Bay. In the city and surrounds, popular dog hangouts include De Waal Park in Oranjezicht, Green Point Urban Park and Lion’s Head.
Cape Town is home to a staggering number of beaches but not all of them are dog-friendly. When in doubt, always look for signage that will let you know if dogs are allowed.

Leashed dog beaches include Graaff’s Tidal Pool in Sea Point; Capricorn Beach; Nine Miles Beach in Kommetjie; Dangers near St James; and Milton Beach and Tidal Pool in Sea Point.
Limited access beaches that only allow dogs before 09h00 and after 18h00 between November and April include Big Bay and Blaawberg Beach in Bloubergstrand; Camps Bay Beach; Clifton Fourth; Llandudno; Melkbosstrand Beach; Milnerton Lagoon and Beach near the lighthouse; Saunders Rock Beach and Tidal Pool in Bantry Bay; Three Anchor Bay Beach; Sunrise Beach in Muizenberg; and Mnandi Beach in Strandfontein.
Whichever beach you visit, always make sure that you follow basic guidelines. Cape Town’s beaches are loved by locals and visitors of all ages, including children. Keep dog poop bags with you and clean up after your dog. Always follow rules on signs and do not take your dog off-leash unless you are certain the beach is a no-leash beach. Make sure that your dog listens to commands and avoid letting off-leash dogs run up to people, harass other dogs or create havoc for beachgoers.
