Overview
More
At the tip of the Cape Peninsula, 60km SouthWest of Cape Town, lies Cape Point. Located within the southern section of Table Mountain National Park; a declared World Heritage site, as part of the Cape Floral region. The Park encompasses 7750Ha of rich and varied Fauna and Flora. Cape Point is a nature entusiast's paradise. Rugged rocks and sheer cliffs towering more than 200 metres above the sea and cutting deep into the ocean provide a spectacular background for the Parks’ rich bio-diversity. The scenic beauty of Cape Point is not its sole allure; it is also an international icon of great historical interest with many a visitor drawn to the area because of its rich maritime history. Home to the Flying Dutchman Funicular and the Two Oceans restaurant.

A visit to this nature reserve at the most south-western tip of the African continent is always a delightful experience. Go to Cape Agulhas to see where the two oceans meet.

When in Cape Town one should definitely visit Cape point. You can take a drive or go hiking and enjoy beautiful scenery along the way. The 2 Ocean's restaurant is highly recommended as well but unfortunately, we didn't have time to try it. There is...More

The views really are wonderful here, but to me it seems a bit cheeky that they charge per person and not per vehicle. All other driving routes around the area just charge per vehicle.

I was impressed with the views but moreso the experience driving down to the Cape and seeing the wildlife of the area along with the terrain. Spending a full day driving down the cape was well worth it.

There is a fee to go on the nature reserve but you can stay there all day especially if you like walking. Secluded beaches with clear water are a must to go on. Walk right up to the point and view some spectacular views.
