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.

We visited Cape Point as part of a day trip from Cape Town and it was well worth it, the weather was lovely which definitely helped but scenery still would have been stunning anyway. Definitely worth visiting if you appreciate stunning scenery

“History class comes to life”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 15, 2014

Portuguese explorer Bartholomew Dias was tasked to find a sea route to India from Europe. He was the first European explorer to round the cape and aptly called it the Cape of Storms. Now called the Cape Point or Cape of Good Hope its magical... History for real!

“Worth the journey”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2014

This was definitely one of the highlights of our trip to South Africa. We made the Cape into a day's outing and were delighted that we did so. It was, however, incredibly windy that day so if you are quite light do take care when climbing up to the viewpoint so that you don't get blown off as there is very little to hang on to!! Our only bugbear was that, in comparison to many other things in South Africa, it was very expensive, having to pay to go onto the route, pay to go into the reserve and then pay some more to go up on the furnicular. Other than that, fantastic

Loved the walk, the scenery but the baboons were everywhere, so watch your belongins. They even climb onto the cars!
And this is not the point where the Indian and Atlantic oceans meet :(

“Not much too see”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2014

Really quite tedious terrain, although the point itself is worth going to as it is relatively dramatic. Makes a nice day out from Cape Town with Chapman's Peak Drive and penguins as Simonstown.
