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.

When in Cape Town, I spent one week, and tried for three times to get to the top of Table mountain with cancellations due to the weather. On signal hill, you don't need t worry, since the altitude is lower. The views are wonderful on all sides from the city, beach, views of Robben Island, and the table mountain park.

Stunning views of Table Bay ahead of you and Twelve Apostles sneaking off behind you. Perfect viewing of Robben Island and Table Mountain - now with a quirky "frame" for your subjects to pose behind with TM right behind them. Picnic tables, WCs, Paragliding to do or watch... stunning must do. And all it costs is tip to the car guard.

You can drive and park at the top. Plenty of space and views like out of a movie set. You can do the entire journey in 30 minutes if you need just a short diversion.
