“Ohhh what a sunset!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 6, 2014

Friday evening, nice wine, a blanket....jsut the perfect time to enjoy a wonderful sundet.
OK, the Signal Hill becomes more and more popular to ALL tourist. Thus it's getting crowded. You need to like buses full of tourists.

“A nice climb to watch the sunset”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 4, 2014

i have not climbed the rock for a while (reviews only go back so far) it is a lovely climb with chains to assist the last part. When you reach the top you are rewarded with breathtaking views. I suggest to walk in a group for safety.

“Walks, views, paragliding”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 3, 2014

I walk up Signal hill from time to time. The effort of the walk is totally rewarded by the view at the top. I'd recommend this to any visitor to the city. If you don't enjoy walking, you can always take a car or bus up.

Do pack a picnic - there's lots of space at the top to enjoy a meal while checking out the panoramic view over the ocean, Green Point Stadium, Sea Point Promenade and the new park.

Also look out for the paragliders who take off from signal hill and land on the Sea Point promenade. Join in if you have the stomach for it. It's an amazing ride. A bit expensive for locals, but if you're a tourist it might not hurt your pocket too much.

“Signal hill”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 29, 2014 via mobile

It took me a while to figure the top of the sign hill is actually a lions head. It was such a great contour.
You must go up n see this. Its quite different from the top view of the table mountain.
