you can not be in the area and not check this box !

Cape of Good Hope - what a stunning view (and windy too).
you can kill 2-3 hours just walking around and enjoying the view of the sea smashing into the rocks.

very nice rock formation and sunset can be amazing too !

The drive from Cape Town central is so incredibly worth it as there are great views throughout and other great places to stop at along the route. I'd spend a whole day and do it slow but make sure you arrive with enough time to enjoy all the beauty that the Cape of Good Hope has to offer. Prepare to be dazzled.

Lovely place that gives you a little glimpse at what the African landscape may look like. Amazing spot where the two oceans come together. Beware the baboons at the parking spot ;)

A must visit when you are at the Cape.Always knew this had special significance to sailors and you could see why.It is in a section of the Table Mountain national tax.

This place is called by two names. To satisfy all opinions the rock with the lighthouse and the radio beacon was assigned the name Cape Point and Cape of Good Hope became the name of the pretty, adjacent bay.
Geographically interesting, this is where the Atlantic and Indian Oceans meet and water currents and unstable weather make passage very perilous. Historically interesting, this is where ships of yore from Holland, England, Portugal etc. turned their bows towards the far East.
