Worth a walk up there if you are in the area but by no means something to go out of your way to see.

We used to own a villa less than a mile from this famous landmark. Never got closer to it than 50 metres when walking past but had the beauty of its rotating beam across the sky every night, viewed from our bedroom. It can be seen for miles.

You can't get in and you can't really get a good view of the lighthouse; what you can get is a nice view of the city and the coast, although there are trees blocking the view in most directions. It's quite a walk up there, especially if it's hot.

The best way to visit the lighthouse is on an open top tour bus, the trip takes in the famous Hotel Du Cap.
