It's a beautiful point. Take the time to go climb to the top of the lighthouse for the views. There is also a display of the trash brought in from the ocean.

Easy climb up, tho ladder style instead of steps. DON'T wear your flip flops. Makes climbing more difficult! Loved seeing the surroundings from above and feeling even more wind! Do it!

Interesting walk, especially along the boardwalk on the shore to the new monument at the tip of Africa. Great ocean views, and lighthouse modelled on the ancient one at Pharos, Egypt

The lighthouse is just a lighthouse. A decent sized structure but obviously the location is the important point. But I much preferred the actual Tip of Africa structure a few hundred metres south as more interesting.

Cape Agulhas Lighthouse is set in exactly the surroundings that one would expect, bleak, exposed and visible for miles around. The climb to the top would be scary if you don't like heights as the ladders are almost vertical at times but the view of...More
