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.

We had a very full day but found the extra driving worth it. Though it is not the actual tip of Africa, which is Cape Agulhas, it is the tip on the south eastern side and so is quite amazing. Good views from the lighthouse.

The drive to Cape of good Hope is great. The ride up to the lighthouse on the flying Dutchman funicular is interesting. The views from the top are great. You can see blue and green sea. The place around the lighthouse gets a bit crowded...More

If you're looking for something outdoors to do when you are visiting Cape Town, consider this as part of a day trip. The drive there will take you anything from an hour and a half from Cape Town depending on how often you get out...More

To enjoy to the max make sure that you are able to walk up (and down) the mountain. The walk from the Cape Point to the lighthouse and then to the Cape of Good Hope is priceless.

It was a dream come true to be standing at the south western tip of Africa. The clear blue ocean and the surrounding were simply stunning! Sighting of animals added to the fun.
