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.

Perfect view of the city and the Ocean! We were unable to go up the cable car for Table Mountain, so we drove up Signal Hill as the alternative. It was a beautiful day and beatiful view. People were even up there hangliding down!

Table mountain managed to evade us all holiday as the winds were too forceful and the top was too cloudy. However, Signal hill was the perfect 2nd choice. In fact, the people i went with who have done table mountain before thought you got a better view of Cape Town and Robben Island from here. So definitely do this either before you do table mountain or if you cant. Certainly dont overlook the option of it, You can drive up if you really must

There is not much to see. The view is nice but after 10 minutes we drove back to the city with our rental car.

Since Table Mt. was closed, we went up to Signal Hill. It was a beautiful day and the view was spectacular! Would highly recommend stopping here as well as Table Mountain.

a romantic and beautiful setting to watch the sun set while enjoying a glass of wine. Take a light jersey as the wind tends to pick up most days. parking is a mission at the summit so try and park little lower down or get there early. watch out for the tourist busses.
