The city's gorgeous beaches are a mecca for water sports and windsurfing. The film industry in Cape Town has been providing infrastructure and services to large, international films and commercial productions from Germany, Canada, USA, UK and many other countries. The fabulous locations, the 15-hour long days of summer, the angle and intensity of light, world class facilities and film crew of the highest quality, have helped make Cape Town one of the first choices for productions on this side of the Atlantic.
