"Everything’s better with a little more color"

In a list created by FishingBooker, Cape Town is named one of the most colourful fishing towns in the world.  FishingBooker  is the world’s largest website for booking fishing charters.

The selection was based on a number of factors such as user reviews, access to quality fishing, and overall aesthetic of a place.

“Everything’s better with a little more color. Whether it’s a romantic retreat or an outdoor adventure, nothing makes a vacation special like a vibrant color palette and some beautiful photos to show for it. With that in mind, we’ve put together a list of the most colorful fishing towns in the world.

Our list covers nine spots on four continents. Every town is a little different but they all have two things in common: easy access to amazing fishing and a mix of colors which is simply out of this world. If your Instagram is looking a little thin, these are the places for you.”

What makes Cape Town so vibrant?

There’s nowhere on earth quite like Cape Town’s Bo-Kaap district. Buildings are painted every color imaginable. Each house competes to be the most visible in town.

But Cape Town’s vibrant colors aren’t limited to one neighborhood.

From the jolly bathing huts of Muizenberg Beach to the incredible street art all around the city, there’s always something to bring a smile to a visitor’s face. With so much going on in town, it’s only fitting that Cape Town’s game fish are just as outlandish.

The city’s famous for its monster Yellowfin Tuna, which are just as impressive as the name implies. Anglers can also expect to fill the boat with delicious Yellowtail and Red Roman. All that, with the meeting of the Indian and Atlantic Oceans as a dramatic backdrop.
