What a great visit. There is a pathway out past the main viewing point that takes you out waaaay further than the main viewing point. It's not for the faint hearted and it's not for young children - but it's great.

No trip to Cape Town, South Africa is complete without a visit to the Cape of Good Hope. This place is amazingly beautiful. I happened to visit the place during the winter when it was cold and cloudy. The cold winds were blowing and the place seemed surreal. I recall seeing the ocean down below and feeling wow what a...

On going down to Cape Point I thought this was the Cape of Good Hope, but no, the Cape of Good Hope is a small rocky outcrop to the north west of Cape point, with a plaque on it's base for the tourists to take pictures of. You can easily walk to it from Cape Point car park and it... More

The drive from Cape Town to the Cape of Good Hope is an exquisite journey. The drive along the coast and through Chapman's Peak is beautiful. Watch out for the baboons though as they are quite aggressive if you are carrying food.

Cape of Good Hope was worth going to. It was a nice hike out to the cape and plenty of beautiful view points. I enjoyed seeing a couple of different types of lizards and a snake. Closed toed shoes are best. The beach area looked nice, but wasn't up to the long set of stairs down and back. Nice to... More

Amazing Landscape!!! Once again South Africa surprised us! All very organized, clean, with places to buy food and souvenirs, toilets and a great parking. The view is beautiful and can be done just walked away, although the place has a funicular. Worth hiring a guide to offer the best stories!

Recommend highly. The Cape of Good Hope (formerly, the Cape of Storms) is part of the fee-based Table Mountain National Park. Cape Point, Cape MacLear, and the Cape of Good Hope are co-located on the same peninsula on the western Cape. This is a large area. If you have the time, plan to spend the day sightseeing, walking the beaches,... More

This is one of my favourite beaches on the Cape Peninsula, although not a swimming beach but just to experience the wildness and remoteness of it's location. A truly magical place and especially when the sea is rough. Finish off with a round trip to Kommetjie, Scarborough and then over Chapmans Peak and into Hout Bay for a lunch.

Cape of Good Hope is the south western most point of Africa. It is where the Atlantic & Indian Oceans meet. The views are spectacular. The next place south of here is Antarctica. Beautiful place.

Worth a visit but not to be confused with Cape Agulhas. Beautiful excursion on a good day. Suggest you incorporate this visit into a round daytrip to Simonstown and back via the Chapman's peak pass. There is a restaurant there but facilities are limited so would not plan on having lunch there.
