Getaway ideas for the woman who loves celebrating herself

Women’s Day is an occasion to celebrate being you. The public holiday provides an ideal opportunity to spoil yourself, and do something unique that is just for you.

We have rounded up some of the top Women’s Day getaways that will allow you to indulge in something you truly love. 

Get Active

Is your ideal Women’s Day a morning spent running on a mountain trail, surrounded by magnificent view? Then you should consider the Chasing Trails experience, which will take you on secret running trails with a seasoned local trail runner.

The experience will allow you to take in Cape Town’s unique geography, while getting a quality workout in at the same time.

Soak Up Ocean Views

You needn’t make a big effort for something special on the day. Why not indulge in a staycation overlooking the ocean - somewhere like Camps Bay or Muizenberg? You can make it a girls’ trip, or get some me-time away from home. 

Cook Something Delicious

Airbnb has a multitude of different experiences for burgeoning foodies. Cook Cape Town is an intimate food-lover’s dream hosted by former food editor Nikki Werner.

She takes you through some quintessential South African recipes, like bobotie and malva pudding, sprinkling in some personal tips with each dish.

Let Your Creativity Shine

What better way to celebrate Women’s Day than by doing something you usually wouldn’t have the time to do? Studio Visit & Sketching is a creative art experience that is set in a cosy Woodstock art studio.

You’ll enjoy some snacks and a glass of wine before starting a fun and light-hearted sketching session. 

Indulge your Senses

Whether you’re a coffee addict or prefer to pair wine with delicious cheeses, Airbnb has you covered.

Super Tasters will take you on a food tour through Cape Town, with a stop at Bree Street’s Culture Cheese Club for a cheese and wine pairing while Coffee Roasting: From Bean to Cup will answer every question about caffeine you’ve ever had.

Dinner... excluding the meat... ?? #food #instafood #foodgram #firstthursday #cheese
