Sun-kissed Salsa in Sea Point… surely the best way to wind down on a Sunday.

Documentary filmmaker and photographer Nicky Newman captures the joy of the occasion, and the ghost of salsa lingering in the sounds of the sea gulls and the waves.

Sun-kissed Salsa is a non-profit organisation which hosts public open air Afro-Latin dance events eery other Sunday during the summer months. Music is not limited to Salsa and includes other Afro-Latin genres.

Take a wildlife safari on the cool waters of the Atlantic Ocean, and experience an extraordinary combination of peace, serenity and vibrant aquatic life just a stone’s throw from the hubbub of the city.

Captured by documentary filmmaker and photographer Nicky Newman.

Cape Kayak Adventures’ small-group excursion – ideal for all levels of experience – involves kayaking around Cape Town’s coastline with the Table Mountain National Reserve as a backdrop. You’ll travel either in the direction of Clifton or the V&A Waterfront, seeing stunning scenery and wildlife all along the way.


A Way of Water

Documentary filmmaker and photographer Nicky Newman shares the moments she has captured at Cape Town’s iconic Sea Point Pavilion swimming pools.

The popular Sea Point Swimming Pool complex consists of an Olympic-sized pool, a springboard diving pool and two splash pools for children. For decades Capetonians have headed here to while away a hot summer’s day with the family, or to start off the morning with a few laps, accompanied only by the sound of gulls.


Dan Shout on the Prom

Documentary filmmaker and photographer Nicky Newman captures a slice of life on the Sea Point promenade, with top SA saxophonist, Dan Shout and his band.

Dan Shout is perhaps best known as the saxophonist for the late South African icon Johnny Clegg. He also occasionally graces the Sea Point promenade where he performs either solo or with members of his band. If you cannot catch him at Sea Point, you may be able to see him perform at Fat Harry’s Jazz Jam, on Mondays. 


Creation of Plascon Stage at Battery Park

Warren Talmarkes / Waterfront Battery Park

Local street art project team, Free the Walls, were challenged by Plascon to paint some old hoarding boards overlooking the canal in Battery Park.  “The middle section is framed so people can pose below the ‘rising sun’, and to the left and right are waves symbolising the V&A’s surrounding oceans. Colour choices were made to depict day and night as well as African warmth and ocean blues.” Primary artist on the mural: Sarah Kate Meyer 

Filmed by local photographer Warren Talmarkes.
