AHHH! My husband and I spent the majority of the day at Cape Point and the Cape of Good Hope and were to stop at Slangkop on the way back to Cape Town. I knew their hours, I had everything set and when we arrived, they were closed. As my best friend (who lives in South Africa) says, "That's South... More

After paying an entrance fee, the lighthouse keeper left us to wander alone inside the lighthouse. We made our way up 144 metal steps (landings included in this count) to the top. The panoramic view from up top is beautiful. The platform is wide enough to circumnavigate the top floor of the lighthouse. There was a large crack in the... More

No matter how many times I pass this lighthouse, I love it. I've seen it nearly from all angles except from the waters and I still love it. It is amazing to walk on the beach and footpath. I've attempted the top but didn't quite make it up all the stairs.

A lovely walk along the beach at Long Beach Kommetjie to reach the lighthouse, nothing to do when you reach it, as it is not open to the public.

We went on a Sunday, so we were unable to go inside the Lighthouse but it was a lovely day and we enjoyed the walk. Lots of people enjoying the sunshine and I was very happy to see security there as well.

The coastal path wanders up to the lighthouse which stands out and can be seen from most of Kommetjie. Beautiful at different times of the day and in various weather conditions. We did not do the climb inside - outside views only.

Tour guide/groundsman was very helpful. I overcome my fear for open stair climbing. Just wear comfortable shoes and remember your camera! Climbing of the stairs are safe! Me and my two children climbed it.

We stayed in Kommetjie for a few days and the walked past the lighthouse on numerous walks in the area. A peaceful and safe area to walk in with beautiful views and plenty of opportunities for photographs. And the lighthouse is really beautiful to watch in the evening too.

This is the second lighthouse that we visited in South Africa and it was a private tour for my boyfriend and I. The view was amazing....we climbed lots of stairs before we could reach the top but the guy who cleaned and takes care of the lighthouse knew everything about the lighthouse and did a great job, for me the...

It is hard to miss the lighthouse while driving on the Atlantic road south from Cape Town, you will find a great scenery around.
