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.

Would highly recommend, most amazing views over looking the and mountains. Climb to the top and you will see what I mean. Worth every penny.

Just incredible views! Wear comfortable shoes and give yourself plenty of time. Be on the lookout for eland, ostrich, and baboons, and maybe even seals on the rocks. Nice gift shop but the best souvenirs will be the incredible photos!

Well worth the visit. The Cape of Good Hope surprisingly isn't the main area where the restaurants and things are - we visited the Cape of Good Hope first and then had a lovely lunch at Cape Point and then climbed the lighthouse after lunch....More

Very beautiful place and worth the drive out of Cape Town. Good chance to stop at Boulder Beach along the way.

We loved our tour to Cape Point. We traveled with Rob from Cape Convoy and loved all the sights. The hike up to both light houses were well worth the time as the views were perfect. We were lucky to have no wind. A must...More

Not very many people make the hike (really it's not hard, I'm 63 and had no trouble at all). But it is very desolate, windy, and evocative of the early sailors who dared to explore. Some gorgeous examples of Protea too.

very expensive for what it is. Its nice to say you have been and some of the views are nice. I just found it all a bit underwhelming. It had been bigged up by a number of tour guides and I guess their trap worked...More

Even though you may have a tight schedule, Cape Point is one of those things that you do not want to miss. Most Southwestern point of the African Continent, beautiful views there and along the way. Hire a tour guide, its well worth it.
