“Great view of the city”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

Loved the view from up there, great for pictures, you can see the whole city, specially on a sunny day. The drive up also offers a great view.

“A little bit exaggerated”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

Signal Hill has an amazing view. We included this place taking into accounts of all comments made on Tripadvisor. However we were a bit disappointed, because there was heavy traffic on the hill. Finally we decided to leave our car and walk through the top before the sunset. The atmosphere is cool and the view is beautiful however i can say that we have been to many other places in Cape Town which has better sunset views(for example Camps Bay I would suggest to visit Signal Hill not just for the sunset, but for the overall view of the whole Cape Town from above. Signal Hill helps you to understand why the city center is called "The City Bowl".
