“Marvellous Views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2013

We joined several other people enjoying seeing the sunset and having a nice wine!! It is a very busy area and the only problem was that so many people left after sunset that a traffic jam ensued as cars had parked all down the road which made two way traffic impossible. Suggest waiting at least a half hour before descending.

“Clearer than the top of Table Mountain.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2013

We went to Signal Hill straight after coming down from Table Mountain where the tablecloth was hanging about (thats the cloud for anyone who does not know). We got some lovely photographs overlooking the city and Robben Island, many people had the same idea to go and get their holiday snaps from Signal Hill. It is a lovely drive up there with seats and very panoramic. Worth a visit.

good views from the top, busy when we went ( midday) and the car park attendants are a bit in your face, worth the visit though
