Cost about £30 for a drive down to see the point plus loads of road works which made it seem even longer. Lovely to see the Point but really not worth the cost. Saw far more beautiful sights on our travels.

The drive down to Cape Point can be spectacular if you go via Chapmans Peak. Cape Point itself is part of a nature reserve that you need to payou to enter, but it is well worth it. Take the funicular from the end of the road, or walk if you are energetic. The views are great.

Weather you drive yourself or go on a tour came here its great and the views are brilliant. It is a bit of a climb up to the lighthouse though.

There exist many great hiking trails at the cape. Wildlife are present, but often difficult to find - baboons, ostrich, and zebra. Hiking poles will provide support for some of the more challenging trails. Bring water and sunblock.
