Cape Town's popularity as a LGBT tourism destination within South Africa is due in large part to its natural beauty, white sandy beaches, mild climate and a strong post-apartheid culture of tolerance. The liberal, post 1994, South African constitution enshrines the rights of individuals regardless of race, sex, religion or sexual preference.
De Waterkant – the area alongside the city centre and en route to the Green Point Stadium – is referred to as the Pink Village with a high concentration of guest houses, hotels, pubs and clubs. The area is the epicentre of the Cape Town Pride festival and a good place any time to watch the parade. Other attractions include the city's abundance of good restaurants and its close proximity to the winelands of the Boland and Constantia Vally. The city's numerous cultural attractions and vibrant music and art seen is another draw.
