Owner description: Signal Hill is so named because it was a site for flying flags to communicate weather conditions, thus providing opportune vistas of spectacular views.

The Red bus route took us here when the Table Mountain Cable car was being repaired. Great for views although not a lot to do here other than watch para gliders jump off in front of you..

Signal Point gives great views back over Cape Town and off over the cliffs and ocean to the south west

Graphically speaking, this would appear as the rump of the Lion's Head mountain in Cape Town central. The view is spectacular, but needs to be accessed by some form of wheels. There have been some incidents of crime at night, (when the views are at their best), so it is ill advised to go up there to park and stand around after dark!

If you can't make it to the top of Table Mountain, or even if you do, Signal Hill is a great stop. You still get panoramic views, but for free. You can also get great shots of Table Mountain from here.
