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

What a beautiful lighthouse… You can admire it and take a lot of good picture from the coastal road. Can't wait to come back soon with some friends.

A lovely lighthouse for those that enjoy looking at light houses. Also a great restaurant down the way for drinks and meals. Called "Fishermans"
