If you drive around or fly over this National park the seaviews are spectacular. There is good photo opportunities. The restaurant serves great food, sit down and take away. There's a Curio shop for those memories or for friends you'd like to share with. There are some beaches to visit within the National Park but the backwash is strong so... More

The drive is scenic and beautiful. You'll see wildlife from your car. There will be a long line to take a picture at the sign, but it's well worth it. How often do you make it to the tip of Africa? The ocean waves crash beside you while you wait. It's so pretty there.

The beautiful fynbos flora and local fauna (Baboons, Gemsbok, Ostrich) are all worth seeing on this trip to the "far south". Whilst it is rather busy during the summer months, it is always memorable.

quite a long way from the city centre, best enjoyed when wind is not too strong, geographically it's the same ocean on either side !!

For most visitors a visit to Cape Point - or the Cape of Good Hope (next to each other in the "Reserve") - is a tick off the list of big sights in Cape Town, along with the Penguins at Simon's Town and Table Mountain. And if you are on a whirl wind tour then take a 30 minute drive... More

Its well worth the trip and if you are a pensioner you get a special concession too. Amazingly blue turqoise sea, what a special feeling and such beauty all around you.

Absolutely beautiful. A must see when visiting Cape Town. Even if you go during the cold months, definitely worth it. Make it a trip and visit some of the winerys as well!

Didn't really know what to expect but when first you are there, it definitely feels like the end of the world! Beautiful views of the ocean and a good walk up the cliffs. We came a bit late, but could easily have spent a day in the park.

Our guide was pretty good explaining the area. It's won't hold much weight without a tour guide. Be prepared for big gusty winds :)

The coastal drive is truly breathtaking and highly recomended to all who enjoy breathtaking views However it is a long drive around the coast up to the national park and the road is winding So if you have motion sickness you might want to take that into consideration Also best if you try to do it on a clear day...
