Owner description: At the tip of the Cape Peninsula, 60km SouthWest of Cape Town, lies Cape Point. Located within the southern section of Table Mountain National Park; a declared World Heritage site, as part of the Cape Floral region. The Park encompasses 7750Ha of rich and varied Fauna and Flora. Cape Point is a nature entusiast's paradise. Rugged rocks and sheer cliffs towering more than 200 metres above the sea and cutting deep into the ocean provide a spectacular background for the Parks’ rich bio-diversity. The scenic beauty of Cape Point is not its sole allure; it is also an international icon of great historical interest with many a visitor drawn to the area because of its rich maritime history. Home to the Flying Dutchman Funicular and the Two Oceans restaurant.

Don't miss ANY of it, especially if the weather is great, as we had it.
Truly dramatic views as you approach the top. If you're in reasonable shape, really no reason to use the funicular, as the drive is quite easy and not that long. Be alert and look for all the little observation points on the way up. There will be lots of sea birds to watch, and if you're lucky, also baboons. Don't miss the extra half an hour walk (both ways to the furthest point, just above the lower and newer light tower. It's all amazingly beautiful.

Although the oceans do not meet here, as many people think they do, this is another must see when visiting Cape Town. A stunning location and although it is far out if town, it is definitely worth a visit for beautiful views for miles around

Up the tramway was a bit of a wait but there are two cars so it wasnt so bad , the best bit is the view from the top but you have to climb up the steps for that and its steep but doable
