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.

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.

with great views over the area. Also use the adjacent walkways that lead t the beaches. Also a good coffee shop to enjoy a slice of cake when you finished.

The weather was extremely changeable when we were there, which is a given for this time of year, but that just ads atmosphere!! Lovely maintained boardwalk along the beach, with a plant rejuvenation project on the go. The lighthouse must recently had a lick of paint, as she was sparkling and beautiful as the late afternoon sun peeked out!! Great... More

It has been repainted and looks beautiful and serene, you can walk close by and sit on benches looking out over the ocean.
