high up on the slopes of table mountain this suburb has great views of the city and harbour. but on windy days it can be very very windy. if you are not fit. walking or cycling up here is a tough exercise. even for fit guys it could be tough to get up the steep roads.

I don't consider myself a dare devil but when I saw the façade of this peak I found it breathtaking. When I found out that there was tandem hang gliding off of this peak on to the beach below I had to try. The hang glide pro's were awesome and made me feel so comfortable. The assured me that we...

I liked this mountain best of the 3 mountains. Since there is much less people going here the bushes grows over the paths makes it feel like you're the first person going there. I started to climb this mountain quite late and it was dark when I arrived back down. I didn't see a single person on the whole hike.... More

Hiked up here daytime. We were almost alone, it seems few other tourists go here. Beautiful mountain, loads of flowers. Liked it better than Table Mountain because it was so quiet. Tip- wear long tights due to scratching bushes and narrow paths some places. You dont need hiking boots, running shoes are fine. Bring loads of water!

The views from the top are more stunning than from Table Mountain and it is a lot less crowded. Lovely hike up there.

It would be best to visit this place in the evening. In the morning, the view is nice too. However, the view of the whole town below is mesmerizing at night, the town light’s twinkling and cast in a golden glow. The hike till the peak was itself an exciting adventure. The wildlife here was also nice; the beautiful flowers,... More

Again , you can see this from the table mountain and a guide will tell you a little story about why the peak was named devil's peak.

I went hiking the 11/12-13 and it was a great trip. It took me about an hour (I think) and it wasn't windy until I got to the top. Not a tough climb, but it's steep in the end. The path is really good, and the view is better. Even on the top you can see "behind" of Cape Town.... More

My husband and I completed the Devil's Peak hike in October last year. Definitely not for the faint hearted, particularly the last stretch. But, fantastic views, beautiful flora including orchids and lillies
